Several elected officials, Daytona Beach City and Housing Authority employees participated in a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Daytona Village on July 26.
Construction of new apartments is expected to be done in phases says Emory Counts, Economic and Community Development director of Daytona Beach.
“The number of phases will depend on how much funding can be put together and used in the project. I expect there would be at least three phases,” Counts said.
Construction of the initial infrastructure has begun. Counts noted that the first units could be available before the end of 2013.
The project is expected to cost $12 million total, which officials have yet to secure. Plans are for 70 two- and three-bedroom rental units.
