Piety Hill apartment building to be rehabbed for affordable housing

Today the city announced another renovation of an old apartment building for affordable housing, plus a major investment in the program. The renovation of the Weber Apartments in Piety Hill, just north of New Center, will be completed in late summer.

The 1927 building has 44 apartments total. Six apartments will be rented to those making at or below 50 percent Area Median Income, while the rest will be at or below 80 percent. One-bedrooms will run between $750 and $1,200 per month.

Hazelwood Partners LLC is leading the $4.4 million project, with a $2.9 million loan through the Detroit Housing for the Future Fund (DHFF).

New resource hub to help homeowners in Jefferson-Chalmers

Owning a home in Detroit comes with its own set of challenges. Next month, a new resource will open in Jefferson-Chalmers to help residents navigate these issues. The old Kresge building at Jefferson and Lakewood has been redeveloped and will serve as a resource hub with services to help homeowners with a variety of needs.

According to a press release, services will include home repair loans, housing counseling services, grants and resources; energy efficiency and utility assistance program implementation; weatherization readiness and rooftop funds; credit repair and recovery; financial education; public wifi and computer access; and Detroit Homeowners Property Exemption application support.

The effort was led by Jefferson East Inc. and supported by the Kresge Foundation, Bank of America, Invest Detroit, and more. It's also part of the Strategic Neighborhood Fund, a targeted effort to improve neighborhoods across the city.
