Urban Housing Solutions is underway developing a project that is being referred to as 3rd and Chestnut. A building permit was issued Friday and work began this week for a new 10-unit affordable housing apartment complex located at 12o2 Third Ave. S. and Chestnut Street. The complex will also include 1,500 square feet of retail space.
The apartments will be one-bedroom units and cost about $625-$650 per month.
There are currently three tenants for the retail space. The site manager has said the spaces are being marketed toward neighborhood retail and service businesses. Conversations are also occurring with individuals interested in opening a coffee shop in the retail section.
The project is targeting completion by year’s end, but the retail space could be finished in the fall.
