ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Construction begins on new housing for the elderly in Albany. More than just a shovel full of dirt was moved around at the site on North Monroe Friday.

Heavy equipment is already preparing for the 24 one-bedroom units that will be built here over the next year.

Dan McCarthy said, "We're building Arcadia Courtside and it's going to be some apartments for elderly. They'll be 24 units, all single one bedrooms. You have to be 62 years of age or older and income qualified to be eligible for it."

The Housing complex is being built with funding from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development by Innovative Housing Initiatives.
