Affordable housing complex in Kimball Junction to be dedicated
A new affordable housing apartment complex in the Village at Kimball Junction will be dedicated on Wednesday.
The Sellers Group is hosting an open house and dedication of the Richer Place Apartments at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the development, located at 1581 Ute Boulevard and south of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites. Bob Richer, a former Park City councilor and Summit County commissioner, and long-time affordable housing advocate, is the complex’s namesake.
The 28-unit apartment complex will provide affordable housing to qualified applicants who earn between 25 to 51 percent of the area’s median income.
The three-story building will include two studio, 18 one-bedroom and eight two-bedroom units, as previously reported in The Park Record. Eight of the ground floor units will be ADA accessible, while two units are set aside for veterans, two units for victims of domestic violence and five units for temporarily homeless individuals and families. Rent is going to range in price from $425 to $980 per month.
The housing project is part of a requirement for the developers of the Village at Kimball Junction, which includes Del Taco, Five Guys Burgers, Café Zupas, Jimmy John’s and Freebirds World Burrito. The development was approved in 2012.
Meredith Reed was elected to a two-year term as chair of the Summit County Democratic Party and said she sees an opportunity to ride the so-called blue wave that saw a Democratic surge nationally and within the state.
