Albany - Affordable housing is coming to downtown Albany. Construction will start next month on a new apartment complex.

"They are fairly upscale apartments, nice landscaping, and a gated community," said Albany Tomorrow Inc. President Tommy Chatmon.

Some of the apartments in South Albany Village will be public housing, some will be open to everyone. The $11,000,000 housing complex will be built on land behind the Civic Center, between Washington and Jackson Streets.

40 of the 132 units in the complex will be built on land behind the Civic Center, between Washington and Jackson Streets. "This will be the highest quality rental housing that's been made available in the downtown area perhaps ever, certainly in the last 30 to 40 years," said Chatmon.

The complex should be completed by December 2004. City leaders will loan $735,000 in HUD entitlement money to ATI to build the complex. The rest of the money will come from private developers and tax credits.
