JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - New affordable housing units will be built in Juneau for low-income seniors.

KTOO reports (https://is.gd/TvDk1V) the Alaska Housing Finance Corp. has awarded $9 million in financing for a 41-unit complex.

It will be built by the Juneau nonprofit St. Vincent de Paul and partner agency GMD Development of Seattle. The complex will include studio and one- and two-bedroom apartments with retail space for St. Vincent de Paul’s thrift store on the ground floor.

It will sit on 1.3 acres of land located near Juneau International Airport. Officials hope to break ground late next summer.

The charity organization also wants to renovate its two other Juneau properties along with another one in Haines.
