The $26 million first phase of the development, which will include 105 apartments, is set to begin. Sixty Creighton Court families will get a chance to choose to live in the mixed-income community.
“It’s been five years in the making,” Orlando Artze, the interim CEO for the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority (RRHA), said. I think a lot of families got disillusioned, didn’t think it was going to happen.”
Creighton court residents will be able to apply next year.
Rent will be subsidized. There are some requirements to be eligible. The first phase is expected to be finished in late 2019. When all of the phases are done, 256 families will have an opportunity to live at Church Hill North.
