Affordable Housing Project Breaks Ground in Sanford
The lack of affordable housing in Florida has reached crisis proportions. While state and local governments are exploring many different options for tackling the problem, the most immediate effects come from developers who are creating actual properties where Florida residents can rent affordable homes.
RE Business Online reports that ground has broken on a large, multimillion-dollar affordable housing project in Sanford. The one, two, and three-bedroom units are expected to be ready for residents to move in around late 2021 or early 2022. A total of sixty affordable units will be included in the property. These units will be offered to hundreds of former residents who were displaced from the site in November 2013, when HUD demolished a housing complex on the site that had been deemed uninhabitable.
The same developer has three other affordable housing projects in the works across southern Florida, as well as four communities for active adults. Other developers are also taking advantage of the tax incentives and other benefits made available for affordable housing, so there are likely to be more affordable housing developments available in the coming years. In the meantime, Florida tenants have legal rights that protect them when facing past due rent, eviction, and other legal processes.
