Southfield housing renovations to help low income, senior and disabled residents



McDonnell Tower Apartments and the tower and townhomes at River Park Place in Southfield are getting a $19.8 million makeover. The Southfield Nonprofit Housing Corporation, in partnership with Southfield-based Larc Community Development Group, worked on behalf of the City of Southfield to make this makeover project possible. Together they secured Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) tax credit financing and a construction loan to renovate the properties, located at Civic Center Drive and Berg Road. In addition to extensive exterior and interior renovations, the affordable rental housing apartments will be getting energy efficiency upgrades which will lower monthly utility costs for residents and reduce the carbon footprint of the buildings.
