Construction will soon begin on a new affordable apartment complex in East Central Albany.

Today, Dougherty County and Albany leaders broke ground on the Broadway Court Apartment Complex. The 24-unit complex is the first housing project of the Albany Urban Redevelopment Plan, started last year to revitalize the area east of the Flint River.

The property on Broadway Street was once substandard, low-rent housing. The new apartment will give low-income renters a place to live, while sprucing up the neighborhood.

The project cost nearly 2-million dollars and will be paid for with state and federal funds. The apartments should be completed in just over a year.
