Charlottesville’s Friendship Court Apartments View Proposed Changes
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Big changes are coming to Charlottesville’s Friendship Court Apartments.
On Friday evening, those living in the neighborhood got together to learn more about what it means for them and their families.
The get-together was held at Friendship Court's Community Center where people were eager to learn more about the future of the apartment complex.
The Piedmont Housing Alliance constructed a seven-year redevelopment plan for the complex, which included both low-income and market rate housing.
At the event, people received updated information about redevelopment plans, including a view of potential floor plans for the new units.
“We like to have the community events one we like to let people know what's going on because although we are meeting regularly, the residents don't necessarily know everything that's going on. So we like to give them an opportunity to find out what's going on, and also them an opportunity to give us feedback,” said Claudette Grant, the community organizer for Friendship Court Apartments.
Construction on the multi-million dollar redevelopment is projected to begin sometime in 2020.
