It’s the week of groundbreakings – two for the Fresno Housing Authority.
The authority was in Firebaugh on Thursday to turn the dirt on a 30-unit senior housing complex at P and 13th streets. The property was owned by the city’s former redevelopment agency.
Now called Firebaugh Gateway Apartments, the authority will build one- and two-bedroom apartments will universal design elements to accommodate residents with physical needs. The complex will include a community room for on-site services.
Construction is expected to be finished by the end of next year.
On Tuesday, the authority broke ground on the first phase of a 128-unit multifamily apartment complex in southwest Fresno that is also expected to open by winter 2016.
