SUBMITTED BY THE FRESNO HOUSING AUTHORITY

The Fresno Housing Authority celebrated the grand opening of its new southwest Fresno senior housing development on Wednesday.

Bridges at Florence, located near Edison High School at 649 E. Florence Ave., is a 33-unit apartment rental complex that was built on a blighted parcel of land. Six units are still available. Seniors whose annual incomes are between $12,050 and $24,120 are eligible to live at the complex.

The property also has picnic areas, a community garden and a community resource building for resident activities.

“This project has been a collaboration that includes many partners across our community and we are proud that so many organizations have come together to make this senior development a reality in southwest Fresno,” said Preston Prince, executive director of the Fresno Housing Authority.

The project was a partnership between the housing authority; the King of Kings Housing Development Corporation, a nonprofit based in southwest Fresno; equity investor PNC Real Estate; and the city of Fresno.
