Under Construction:

Located at 10 E Broadway Blvd, the historic Westerner building was built in 1961 and will be redeveloped by COPE Community Services. Designed by Carhuff + Cueva Architects, the existing 55,024 sqft four-story building will undergo a renovation for offices, ground floor commercial and 3,000 sqft of retail. A new 38,421 sqft six-story addition will be added (20 E Broadway Blvd) to the east side of the existing building for 50 housing units and support facilities for low-income seniors and veterans. The project was approved for low-income housing tax credits(LIHTC) in 2016.

The final 6th story of the additional building at 20 E Broadway is complete, that will be the Westpoint Apartments. Jackson Street at Stone Avenue remains closed. The project is expected to be complete by early Fall 2018.
