The proposed affordable housing will offer a mix of 30 studios, 55 one-bedrooms, 57 two-bedrooms and 27 three-bedroom apartments. 51 units will be filled by formerly homeless families with on-site services provided by the Center for Urban Community Services non-profit. Community facilities include a courtyard, a community room with kitchenette, a computer lab and children’s library, exercise room, laundry rooms and a rooftop photovoltaic solar installation.
