An $18 million full-gut rehabilitation and renovation project for Town Park Village No. 1 at 1680 NW 4th Ave. is about to begin. The Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency (SEOPW CRA) hosted a commencement ceremony yesterday to mark the occasion.
Built in the early 1970s, the HUD Cooperative housing complex has 147 residential units and common facilities scattered throughout 19 two-story buildings. The aging structures, located in the northern portion of the redevelopment area, are in various states of disrepair. Water and sewer lines need replacement and pose a significant risk to the health and safety of residents.
