TARPON SPRINGS, FL - The Tarpon Springs Housing Authority and Pinnacle Housing Group will hold a ribbon cutting for The Villages at Tarpon, a new affordable rental housing option for seniors 55 and older.
The community was originally built in the 1970s as public housing and has been completely renovated through a partnership with the TSHA and Pinnacle, resulting in 95 one- and two-bedroom units.
"It is important to live in a place that you are proud to call your home," said Robbin Sotelo Redd, TSHA executive director. "TSHA and Pinnacle have shown their commitment to being agents of positive change for the residents of Tarpon Springs."
The renovated apartments are enhanced with features including porcelain tile, granite countertops, modern cabinetry and private entrances. Residents are also provided state-of-the-art amenities including a business center, multiple clubhouses and numerous resident activity programs.
"The transformation of obsolete public housing into modern, energy efficient homes is very gratifying. Pinnacle Housing Group is proud to provide our experience and leadership in the full rehabilitation of the project," stated David O. Deutch, partner, Pinnacle Housing Group.
Villages' resident Bruce Miller, 62, has lived in both the old and new complexes. "The apartment was basic and very old," he said. "I am amazed at how beautiful the new apartment is with built-in appliances and wood-tone ceramic flooring; it's really a high-end apartment now," he said. "And the clubhouse has been fully furnished with computers and a flat screen television."
