This property was originally constructed in the 1970's as 100% Section-8 housing. In just a few short years (1981), renovation was needed and took place. Then, by 2012, renovation and expansion were needed to create apartments that were large enough for occupancy.

Demolition and reconstruction (including the much needed additions to each apartment) began in late 2013 and was completed by December, 2014. Each apartment was completely gutted with additions being made. Also, the interior floor plan was adjusted to to make the apartments more functional and inviting.
