Construction has begun on Premises Patriot Village II in Trenton. The $22 million project will create a four-story, mixed-use building with 72 affordable housing units.
The residential units will include one-bedroom units (11), two-bedrooms (42), and three-bedroom units (19). Priority will go to homeless and veteran applicants. Residents will also have access to children’s educational activities and health and wellness activities for all.
The building’s amenities include a 690-square-foot gym, 1,600-square-foot community room, and more than 1,100-square feet of ground level retail.
There will be 72 on-site parking spaces under the building and an interior courtyard.
The project broke ground in July after years of federal grant money was frozen and kept the plans from moving forward.
With access to the money from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, work is in progress with completion expected in Fall 2021.
