The proposed apartment complex, which would replace a church and an apartment building, calls for the construction of a four-story edifice containing of 48 one, two-, and three-bedroom apartments.  All of the residential units would be restricted to households earning 80 percent or less than the area median income.

Brooks + Scarpa is designing the proposed development, which would have a modern stucco exterior wrapping a central courtyard area.

Other developments in the pipeline from Community Corp. include new affordable housing at 1820 and 1834 14th Street.
