Vintage Housing and GreenStreet Companies held a ground-breaking ceremony for Vintage at The Crossings, a 230-unit senior apartment complex. The project marks the first large-scale affordable housing project to break ground in a decade.

The project is designed to house low-income residents who are 55 years and older and is funded in part by the state, the City of Reno, and Washoe County. Unit prices will range from $500 to $700 per month and residents will be close to many retail and medical services.

Construction is now underway on the 5-acre site and the facility is expected to open next summer.
