New housing development aimed at revitalizing Seven Mile Road community

April 23 2013 | no comments

There’s a new housing development in Detroit for people with special needs.

Penrose Village II  is a part of the Arab American and Chaldean Council’s Seven Mile Project, which is focused on revitalizing the area between Woodward and John R.

The development will be made up of 48 single-family units with a combination of two- and three-bedroom duplexes and three-bedroom single family homes, along with a central farmhouse with offices for service providers and community gardens.

The ACC will be the primary service provider for the project, which is targeting those with special needs including the homeless, victims of domestic violence and the disabled. In addition, future tenants must have an income that falls within 30 to 50 percent of the median income for Wayne County.

The first house is scheduled to be completed by the end of April, and the rest of the homes should be built by the end of fall. Residents will be moving in when the homes are finished.

Those interested in being added to the waiting list can contact the ACC at (313) 369-3102, Monday through Friday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
