The Palm Beach County Housing Authority (PBCHA) is pleased to announce the Groundbreaking for New South Bay Villas, consisting of 131units of safe and affordable housing in South Bay, Florida. On September 24, 2014, PBCHA and Palm Beach County will commemorate the start of Phase 1 (16 units) of the overall development.

The New South Bay Villas will combine two PBCHA-owned properties into “one” newly renovated community (South Bay Villas and Marshall Heights). South Bay Villas was built in1987 and is comprised of 65 apartments. Marshall Heights Apartments was built in 1975 and is a townhome style community offering 66 family units. Combined, the New South Bay Villas will offer 131 units of decent, safe and affordable housing. The units at South Bay Villas are in need of significant work to repair and remodel them to current standards. PBCHA has sought approval from HUD to demolish Marshall Heights to make way for new construction, due to ongoing repair costs, physical obsolescence, and structural issues.

“Palm Beach County Housing Authority provides decent, safe and affordable housing to low and moderate-income families, elderly and disabled individuals. Our Resident Services Department provides assistance to individuals and families who strive for self-sufficiency and /or independent living. PBCHA’s commitment is to become the leading housing agency in Palm Beach County while improving the quality of life of residents and participants through key partnerships with stakeholders that share the same vision”, said Board Chair Marcia Hayden, in a brief statement.

Since 1969, PBCHA has been responsible for the administration, maintenance, and management of its Housing Choice Voucher Program, Affordable Housing Apartment Units, and Public Housing.

This project will play a major role in providing quality homes for low-to-moderate income families. These 131 homes will serve as the anchor for family success regarding education, careers and family values.

Brief remarks will be made by PBCHA Board Chair Marcia Hayden, Housing and Community Development officials from the Palm Beach County Department of Economic Sustainability, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Phase 1 General Contractor (Javin Walker, President of 2SBW) and Phase 2 Developer (Joe Glucksman, President of McCurdy Senior Housing) will also be introduced and acknowledged.
