Valley nonprofit UMOM announced that plans have been approved for a 54-unit affordable housing apartment complex in west Phoenix.
The development, called 19 North, will replace an underdeveloped, vacant lot along Morten Avenue that runs on 19th Avenue, bounded roughly by Dunlap Avenue to the north and Montebello Avenue to the south.
The apartments will have fully-equipped two and three-bedroom apartments. There will be on-site recreational and after-school programming for children, as well as family services including GED tutoring and wellness programs.
Construction crews expect to break ground in late 2017 or early 2018, with the work funded in part by Low Income Housing Tax Credits offered through the City of Phoenix. The first families are expected move into the property in early 2019.
Total development cost of the project was $16,665,841.
