The Pinellas County Housing Authority (PCHA) plans to break ground on a new 153-unit apartment complex for seniors this summer.
The proposed new Pinellas Heights senior community would be located off of Ulmerton Road near 113th Street and the Pinellas Trail at a shopping center site.
More than $17 million could be invested into the local economy through this project from 2012-2013, according to a news release.
About 200 jobs could be created from the project during the 18 months of construction. Plus, management and maintenance jobs would be created for the new housing community. The PCHA expects the creation of a total of 395 jobs, according to a press release.
