Project objective:

      • This development will serve the local population and families in need of affordable rental housing in the area. The units will be desirable with their attached garages and amenities package offered and the low density, single family housing atmosphere is an added incentive. . The planned features and amenities are more single family housing oriented which will give prospective tenants an atmosphere which the standard rental housing developments cannot offer. We believe this development will benefit the City of Huntington’s housing needs as well as promote the housing goals established by IHCDA.
