Brownsville Eyesore Renovated into Affordable Housing
By Christopher Cameron
The long abandoned Hampton Village Apartments, built in the 1950s in Miami’s Brownsville neighborhood, has been transformed into an affordable housing complex. The multifamily project, located at 2800 Northwest 43rd Terrace, offers 100 affordable housing units for roughly 250 residents.
“Rather than being an eyesore to the neighborhood, Hampton Village is now a beautiful apartment building that residents can feel proud of,” Stephanie Berman, president of Carrfour Supportive Housing, told GlobeSt. “The complete redevelopment of this building signals a new beginning for these Miami families.”
Carrfour partnered with Landmark Development on the $21 million project – most of which came in the form of federal stimulus monies.
“In addition to bringing much needed quality affordable housing to the area, Carrfour is also providing on-site services at Hampton Village aimed at putting unemployed residents back to work,” Berman said. “We are not only rebuilding apartments, we are rebuilding lives.”
