The project calls for the construction of two 24-apartment buildings at an estimated cost of $2.8 million per building.
The project will initially involve only one building.
When that is occupied a second one will be built.
Work is anticipated to begin the middle of April or May 1, depending on the weather.
Each building will be three-storys high with apartments ranging in size from 1,000 square feet to 1,250 square feet. These will be two and three-bedroom units, some with two baths others with one.
These are moderate to high-end buildings, designed for seniors or semi-seniors who want to sell their homes but who don’t want to leave the community.
The issue will go before city council on Monday, March 17, for final approval.
