From Real Estate Weekly:
WinnDevelopment has begun work on a $23 million apartment community for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.
The Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Village in Tinton Falls, NJ, will feature a four-story building with 70 one-bedroom apartments that will be available at a range of income levels.
Soldier On, a non-profit organization serving homeless veterans since 1994, will provide residents at The Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Village with services, including workforce assistance, benefits assessment and ancillary support programs.
“There are more than 400,000 veterans in New Jersey and thousands of them are disabled, homeless or in need of the support that will improve their quality of life,” said WinnCompanies CEO Gilbert Winn.
The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) has awarded 18 Housing Choice Project-Based Vouchers to the project to assist homeless veterans.
“We have a moral obligation to take care of our soldiers when they complete their service to our country, some of whom will have lifelong mental and physical health challenges as a result. Providing them accessible, decent, safe and clean housing with the supportive services they require is one of the ways we can help ensure they live the quality of life they deserve,” said Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver, who serves as Commissioner of DCA.
“This new apartment complex will provide New Jersey veterans and their families with a home in a community that understands and meets their unique needs. Governor Murphy and I are grateful to the public and private partners who have come together to move this project forward and we look forward to its completion.”
