FLINT, MI — A long-vacant apartment complex in Flint’s Carriage Town will be converted into affordable housing under a project spearheaded by Communities First, Inc.
The Georgia Manor Apartment project will convert a vacant three-story building into an apartment complex with 26 renovated units.
The current building at 411 Lyon St. has been vacant for the past 20 years. The building is walking distance from downtown Flint, Mott Community College, University of Michigan Flint and Kettering University, officials said at a ground breaking ceremony held virtually Thursday, Oct. 22.
The complex will include an interior courtyard, community space and on-site laundry.
“The project helps fill a huge need for affordable housing in Flint,” Meek said.
