Project Goals:
As a welcomed project in the Community; this new state of the art recreation and fitness center is equipped with locker rooms in addition to a full-size basketball court adjoining to new and affordable apartment housing.

Project Description:
Developed by Procida Development Group, in conjunction with The Mount Hope Housing Company, Mount Hope Walton Apartments will bring 104 new affordable housing units to the community. Located adjacent to the Mount Hope Community Center, the new Mount Hope Walton Apartments will also bring a new basketball court and fitness facility for the neighborhood. The fitness facility and the basketball court will be accessed through the existing Mount Hope Community Center. The Mount Hope Walton Apartments are a prime example of community based affordable housing development. The focus of this project is to expand and improve the lifestyle and lack of affordable residences in the immediate Community. This 14 story building provides all of the modern amenities and boasts an attractive layout including 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units. The building has two elevators, a communal modern laundry room and an abundance of bicycle storage areas.

Community Impact:
The total square footage of the project is 89,500 of residential footage plus an additional 8,000 square feet of Community Recreation Space. In addition to the public recreation space there are two indoor recreation rooms with outdoor access for tenants of the building. The façade and exterior of the project are eye catching and very complimentary to the surrounding buildings.
