Affordable housing complex opens in Irvington

This afternoon is the big ceremony for Main street Village Apartments in Irvington.

The complex will have 64 units targeting really poor people. Nineteen of the units will be for people with severe mental or physical disabilities or foster kids exiting the system. The complex will have supportive services, as well as a vegetable garden, children’s play area and a computer lab.

These projects are always expensive, especially when they target the poorest of the poor. Main Street Village was budgeted at about $30 million, which pencils out to $468,750 per unit.
