Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
The NRP Group is announcing the upcoming official VIP groundbreaking ceremony of the $12 million Madison Pointe Apartment Homes project – which is slated to be ready for residents in the Fall of 2012 – will take place on Thursday, February 9, 2012. Madison Pointe is the first multifamily construction project in the city of Phoenix to feature a dedicated veteran’s initiative.
Scheduled speakers at the event include Phoenix Councilman Tom Simplot (District 4); Arizona Department of Housing Director Michael Trailor; Col. Joey Strickland (director of Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services); John McGarey (president of the Devonshire Neighborhood Association); and David Hepburn, Chief Housing Officer of UMOM among others. The Vietnam Veterans Association Chapter 432 of Phoenix will present the colors.
The project - located at 4150 N. 9th Street - was financed with funds from Bank of America (who is the equity partner, construction loan originator and permanent lender), The Arizona Department of Housing, and the City of Phoenix, which provided a HOME loan.
Ten units have been set aside for VASH vouchers, which is the Department of Housing and Urban Development and Department of Veterans Affairs Supported Housing (HUD-VASH) program providing long-term case management, free supportive services and permanent housing support. There are an additional ten units set aside for rental subsidy through the McKinney Vento Grant with case management funded through a grant from Supportive Services to Veteran Families.
Designed with low to moderate income U.S. veterans and their families in mind, Madison Pointe will offer sixty affordable 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartment homes with an array of features including a fully-equipped kitchen, ceiling fans, in-unit full size washer and dryer, and a private patio or balcony.
Amenities include a clubhouse with community room, free resident fitness center, playground, computer center with high-speed internet access, carports, and full perimeter fencing and gated access.
Madison Pointe will be a short walk to the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center, Vietnam Veterans of American and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, giving veteran residents convenient access to world-class medical care and veteran services.
