Affordable Housing Finance recently announced its 2019 Readers’ Choice Award finalists, including two affordable communities that fall within CREA’s portfolio. Mixed-Use Finalist, Independence Apartments and Library in Chicago, Illinois is represented by developer Evergreen Real Estate Group and “is bringing renewal to Chicago’s Irving Park neighborhood, with the development of 44 units of affordable housing for seniors and a much-needed full-service library.”
Additionally, Highland Hall Senior Housing was selected as a Seniors Finalist. Located in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, Highland Hall is the revival of one of the area’s “most prominent buildings” that was becoming dilapidated “before S&A Homes stepped in to adapt the property into 53 affordable apartments.” (www.housingfinance.com)
