PROCESS

Originally, only one of the four towers would be converted to an ALF

Improvements were to be made to all units in that tower

Residents strongly supported the redevelopment

TREK Development Group was selected to be the developer

ACHA and TREK partnered to form Homestead Housing Development Partnership, LLC
