New affordable housing unit opens in Mount VernonPosted: Updated:
New apartments for low income families and those with special needs have opened in Mount Vernon in an effort to revitalize the city.
The Modern is an 11-story affordable housing unit in the Mount Vernon West Transit District.
Gary Rivera says it has always been a dream to have a place of his own. He says the new building is perfect for him, because it is only a short distance from his job.
MacQuesten Development says the project is only the beginning and there are more projects ahead.
