The Pinellas County Housing Authority has been chosen as a recipient of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) Awards of Merit: Palms of Pinellas Mixed-Income Workforce Housing. The award was announced during NAHRO’s Online 2020 Summer Conference.
“We’re proud to honor the hard work and creativity our members have shown in meeting the needs of their local communities”, said NAHRO CEO Adrianne Todman. “Now more than ever, it’s important to showcase their solutions and share them with others who might get inspired.”
Palms of Pinellas is the result of public-private partnerships providing mixed-financing for 92 apartment homes. Located at 13171 Belcher Road South in Largo, these units are enhanced with amenities that feature granite countertops, faux wood plank flooring, modern cabinetry, and washer and dryer in every unit. On-site is a clubhouse, WIFI lounge, resort style pool, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The mixed-finance project was co-developed by the housing authority and Norstar Development USA, L.P.
HOME funds were provided by the Pinellas County Community Development Department and Penny for Pinellas funds through the Housing Finance Agency of Pinellas County were used to purchase the land. Valley National Bank provided financing for the project.
