The Piedmont Housing Alliance celebrated the completion of the renovated Virnita Court Apartments for low income families Wednesday.
The $2.4 million project has 16 units, nine of them reserved for low income and extremely low income families. The housing alliance was able to complete the project in the Rose Hill neighborhood in Charlottesville through city grants.
"This is a preservation project and the goals of this project was to preserve the affordability aspects and as we got in to it we've learned that there was folks that were on disability to people that there were actually school teachers and administrators that actually live in the building" said Stew Armstrong of the Piedmont Housing Alliance.
Armstrong says the project is the first multi-family mixed income project in the city of Charlottesville.
