If all goes according to schedule, residents should be able to start moving into a new mixed-use, mixed-income housing development in downtown Verona this October or November.
The Alexander Company broke ground at the Church Avenue site in early February, the start of a future housing community called ‘Schoolhouse Yards’ — as a node to the site’s former use — which the company said in a news release will offer “affordable, workforce housing.”
“This project will provide housing that will allow people who work in Verona to be able to live in Verona,” Mayor Luke Diaz said in the news release. “Furthermore, the project will feature a fantastic two-acre-plus park, which will serve as an excellent community gathering space for all Verona residents.”
The Alexander Company is the developer and will lead the project.
“The Alexander Company is working to deliver a high-quality, affordable, multi-family community to the City of Verona at the site of the former Sugar Creek Elementary School just minutes from downtown,” the news release states.
The collection of five buildings, which range from approximately 19,000 to 25,000 square feet each, are organized around a central green space and clubhouse building.
“With the goal of creating a unique sense of place and vibrant community, while delivering additional much-needed affordable workforce housing, Schoolhouse Yards embraces a robust amenity package and a variety of apartment styles,” the news release states.
