Taking action is critical. Your largest investment, your home value is at risk. Too many of us have slept through our neighbors pain because it didn't directly effect us.
High dollar amenities for low income housing. This project has a price tag of 18 million dollars to build 60 units. The average cost of each unit then becomes $300,000 each.
The amenities include a pool, club house, sun deck, fitness center,playground for tots, business center with computers and printers, gazebo, picnic tables, barbecue grills, sand volleyball courts and high attention to landscaping for a park like setting for the residents.
All this for the low price of a one bedroom for $688 per month, two bedroom for $828 and finally a three bedroom 1500 square foot unit for $955 a month. . . But wait! there's more!!!
