Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Approves $17 Million in Affordable Housing Projects

Hotel to Housing Conversion

To expand the stock of affordable housing to serve the unique needs of people transitioning from homelessness to housing, $8 million will be used by Arizona Housing, Inc. to convert an existing hotel on Van Buren Street in central Phoenix to permanent, supportive housing. The property will undergo improvements to ensure that each unit is ready for longer-term occupancy. Upon completion, the converted property will offer 50 units that can be occupied by individuals, and in some cases, couples. In addition to the living spaces, the property will include on-site case management services to assist residents with any barriers to employment and match their needs to available programs and services. Construction is expected to begin in late 2022 with an estimated completion date in the summer of 2023, just in time for eligible residents to move as the peak of the summer heat takes hold.

Newly Constructed Rental Units

The Gorman Group has been awarded $6 million to construct 368 new affordable rental units at the southeast corner of 67th and Glendale Avenues. The project, named Centerline on Glendale, will take place in two phases. Phase one will build 186 units and phase two will bring an additional 182 units online.
