Phoenix Focused on Building Affordable Housinghttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/housing/1000Housing2/27/2020 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1000/Newsroom_Housing_016.jpgPhoenix Focused on Building Affordable Housing<div class="ExternalClass993A81F349D144FCAA45196F6C5B562F"><html> <p>The city of Phoenix Housing Department has more affordable housing units under construction than ever before. Current estimates reveal a shortage of up to 100,000 of these types of units. <br><br>“We are in high gear to help address a housing shortage. Housing construction virtually stopped during the Great Recession and now Phoenix is experiencing an influx of new residents," said Cindy Stotler, Housing Department Director. “An overall shortage of housing has resulted in rapidly increasing rents and incomes are not keeping up with rent prices." <br><br>The Housing Department is working to identify and secure resources to help, including U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development programs like Choice Neighborhoods and Rental Assistance Demonstration, Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, and public/private partnerships to aggressively redevelop current housing sites to create more units through added density. <br><br>“These projects will offer residents quality, modern affordable housing in areas near downtown and major transportation corridors," said Stotler. <br><br><strong>Current redevelopments include:</strong></p> <ul> <li><p> <strong>Monroe Gardens</strong> (14th and Monroe streets) – demolished 38 units of obsolete public housing. Currently under construction with 78 new one- to five-bedroom, affordable family housing units.</p></li></ul><ul> <li><p> <strong>Choice Neighborhoods Edison-Eastlake Community </strong> (area between 16th Street and I-10 to the east, Jackson Street and I-10 to the north) – demolishing 577 units of obsolete public housing to build 1,011 units of mixed-income housing over the next six years.  Phase one, called Soluna, is currently under construction and will consist of 177 mixed-income, one- to five-bedroom units when completed. Demolition of public housing units for the next phase will begin in the fall of 2020. </p></li> <li><p> <strong>Foothills Village</strong> (7th Avenue and Alta Vista Road) – major rehabilitation of 200 aged public housing units will begin in the summer of 2020. Multiple buildings will be under construction during the 18-month comprehensive rehabilitation. </p></li> <li><p> <strong>Deck Park Vista</strong> (3rd and Moreland streets) – proposed demolition of 56 units of aged affordable housing to build at least 200 units of mixed-income housing on two acres in downtown's Roosevelt Row. Proposals are due March 6th .  </p></li> <li><p> <strong>Habitat for Humanity Single-Family Homes on Matthew Henson vacant lots </strong> (near 7th Avenue and Buckeye Road) – partnering with Habitat for Humanity to build 30 new LEED Platinum single-family homes for low-income households. Residents must participate in the construction of the home, and they receive housing counseling and down payment assistance. </p></li> </ul> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img src="/housingsite/MediaAssets/Housing_Slider_01.jpg" alt="Affordable housing units" style="margin:5px;width:343px;height:172px;" />      </p> <p> <strong>Resident Assistance Supports Relocation </strong> </p><p> <br>During the construction and/or rehabilitation of existing housing, residents will be temporarily relocated at the city's expense. Resident relocation is managed by the city's Housing Department:</p><ul><li><p>Each household is individually evaluated and assisted according to their needs. </p></li><li><p>Households are offered choices of permanent or temporary relocation.</p></li><li><p>Households are offered units in Phoenix Housing properties.</p></li><li><p>In some cases, households can obtain Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers for permanent relocation to private properties.</p></li><li><p><span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span>All households receive moving assistance in the form of a contracted moving company or a direct payment to the head of household. <span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br></p></li></ul><p><strong>New Homes, New Amenities</strong><br><br>“All residents have the first right to return to the newly constructed housing," said Keon Montgomery, Deputy Housing Director. “Upon return, these residents and new families can look forward to modern housing communities with Energy Star appliances, shaded playgrounds, barbecues, fitness centers and community space for gatherings."  <br><span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br><img src="/housingsite/MediaAssets/CN%20logo%20with%20Tagline.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:249px;height:135px;vertical-align:auto;float:right;" />The Choice Neighborhoods Edison-Eastlake Community will have amenities that include an expanded park with a soccer field and skate plaza, a new linear park w<span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span>ith a meditation garden and fitness equipment, walk-in medical services and career development cen<br>ters, and complete streets with shaded sidewalks.<br><br>For more information about these projects and other Housing Department programs, visit the city's <a target="_blank" href="/housing">Housing Department website</a>. </p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/housingNewshousingAffordable housing under constructionHousing#PHX #affordable #housingAffordable housing, HUD, Choice Neighborhoods, Habitat, redevelopmentAlejandro Montiel602-531-7987602-534-3443​alejandro.montiel@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/17/Alejandro_Montiel_Cordova.jpgPHXHousing
