Park Plaza is intended as a three-phase project with Phase I focusing on acquisition, elevator replacement and exterior work. Upon completion of all three phases, there will be 134 units. Forty-eight of the units will be Section-8 project based and the remaining units will remain affordable to households at or less than 50 percent of the median.
