Spartanburg, South Carolina (WSPA) – Affordable home development construction of the long-awaited $ 30 million apartment complex underway in the city of Spartanberg.
Nearly 190 affordable housing units are currently under construction in North Spartanberg
On Thursday, leaders held a ribbon-cut ceremony to celebrate the completion of the construction of the first 40 town homes nearing completion.
This development, Robert Smalls of Midtown Heights, will move residents from the poor living conditions of Norris Ridge Apartment, a residential apartment on the north side of Spartanberg built in the 1950s, to a modern, affordable apartment. It is a part of the city’s plan.
“Norris Ridge has long been a question mark in the minds of the community. It represents what affordability is, and it was never expected, and this project is truly affordable. I think it shows what a labor home looks like. People need to not only live, but also prosper, “said broker Ralph Settle.
City leaders said Midtown Heights is expected to improve the quality of life for residents of the Norris Ridge community.
The Norris Ridge Community has been plagued by crime and poor living conditions for the past few years. Members of the Spartanburg City Council voted to relocate residents and demolish the complex in 2019.
The tenant said he was ready to escape.
“I can’t wait to get out of here. I can’t wait to get around all the medicines. It’s the realm of drugs, there’s a lot of violence and shooting. And the elderly are always in the shootout. “I’m involved,” said Sharon Holbert, a resident of Norris Ridge.
This development complements the two neighborhood revitalization efforts and includes a community center, clubhouse, playground, ample green space, and a recreational trail that connects to Dan, Spartanberg’s trail network.
All 190 units accept Section 8 and rental assistance to help meet the demand for more affordable housing in the city of Spartanberg.
The entire project is expected to be completed by January 2022.
