The Vestcor Companies opened Lofts at Brooklyn, a 133-unit community in the Brooklyn area of Downtown, on Feb. 11.
“We are proud that this community provides 80 workforce housing units in the Brooklyn neighborhood,” said Ryan Hoover, president of TVC Development, in a news release.
The property at 190 Chelsea St. comprises studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Amenities include a fitness center, internet café, resident lounge with billiards and shuffleboard, clubroom with a kitchen and TVs, a pavilion with grills and a dog walk area.
Lofts at Brooklyn is a workforce housing community with 80 units reserved for residents making less than 80% of the area median income and 53 reserved for residents making less than 140% of the area median income.
A combination of financial support from the Jacksonville Housing Finance Authority, Downtown Investment Authority and Florida Housing Finance Corp. made the community possible, according to the release.
