From ABC 10 News San Diego:

The San Diego Housing Commission says it broke ground Thursday on 42 affordable apartments that veterans experiencing homelessness can take advantage of.

The press release says the development, located on 47th Street in the Chollas View neighborhood, is expected to be finished in the spring of 2024. The site is east of I-805 and within walking distance of Metropolitan Transit System bus routes and the 47th Street trolley station.

According to the press release, a new American Legion Hall will be built on the "Tranquility at Post 310" development property as well.

Council President pro Tem Monica Montgomery Steppe says the affordable rental apartments are a step in the right direction for helping the area's most vulnerable communities, especially those who served in the armed forces.

“These 42 affordable units will reflect genuine gratitude for our Veterans and reiterate a commitment to addressing the housing crisis in San Diego,” she says.

The housing commission awarded a $2.8 million loan for the development of Tranquility at Post 310, but that money can only be used for affordable housing, not the American Legion Hall.

The press release says the housing commission also awarded 20 federal rental vouchers for future Post 310 residents who were previously homeless.

SDHC Interim President and CEO Jeff Davis says these apartments are one of several collaborations with developers to tackle San Diego's housing shortage.
