PONTIAC, Michigan (FOX 2) – One glance and you can see it’s time for Carriage Circle Apartments to get some much needed TLC.
âIt needs a lot of improvement,â said Linda Rice, a resident.
As an affordable housing development, funding was not always available. But thanks to a partnership between the Commission d’habitation du Pontiac and the non-profit Lighthouse which works to end homelessness, the apartments are receiving much needed help.
In total, it will be a $ 40.3 million rehabilitation project to beautify affordable housing apartments. On Friday, a barbecue was held to celebrate the good news that change is on the way.
âIt’s something to look forward to,â Rice said. “I just got excited about this.”
The rehabilitation project will begin this fall and is expected to be completed in winter 2022. The best part about the improvements is that residents will not have a price increase once the changes are complete.
The rehabilitation will include elevators that will be replaced, new carpet and new floors. In addition, the electrical works will be modernized and the apartments will benefit from new household appliances.
Lighthouse joined the project because it supports its mission that everyone deserves quality housing.
âWe are really excited to partner with an organization that has values ââsimilar to ours,â said Ryan Hertz, CEO of Lighthouse.
