Mon, 08/11/2014

As part of the on-going revitalization of Grandy Village, the Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) staff and project design consultants will present plans for Phase 6 improvements at 6:30 PM, August 13, at the Grandy Village Recreation Center, 3016 Kimball Terrace, Norfolk.
Demolition of 88 units in 13 buildings in Grandy Village over five years will make areas available for future redevelopment, including new assisted- rental apartments and mixed-income residences (to include for-sale units). The units slated for demolition have not been modernized with central heating and air conditioning.

The first eight units were demolished this spring.  Plans to build 16 units in the area of demolition are anticipated to be ready for occupancy in the winter, which includes 5-three bedroom units and 11-two bedroom units. All buildings are designed with green building enhancements and energy efficient appliances. One unit is fully handicap accessible and all units meet HUD “visit-ability” standards.
