SAN DIEGO — Housing officials announced Thursday that new, reasonably priced rental homes will be made available to anyone looking for a home in the Chollas View neighborhood.
The Orchard at Hilltop, which was once vacant, has 111 units for people and families making 30-60% of the area median income for San Diego, which is presently between $39,050 and $78,060 per year for a family of four, according to a news release from the San Diego Housing Commission. There are available studios, one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments.
“Deep gratitude on behalf of the City of San Diego to the Silverwood family and to Affirmed Housing,” stated Todd Gloria, the mayor of San Diego. We have worked on several projects together before. I’m sure it won’t be the last either, but from little I’ve seen of each one, I can tell that they’re all excellent initiatives that improve neighborhoods and actually make my work simpler as I try to convince people that we need to create more homes.
According to officials, the facility has a community building, a basketball court, a gardening area, a community room, and outdoor meeting spots. A nearby swimming pool and leisure area that are a part of a market-rate development are also accessible to residents.
The Valencia Park/Malcolm X Library, parks, schools, a San Ysidro Health Center location, and the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System bus routes are all accessible on foot from The Orchard at Hilltop. The distance to the 47th Street Trolley Station is also around a mile.
25 rental housing vouchers were given out by SDHC to help some of the inhabitants of the building pay their rent, according to officials. For 55 years, rent will continue to be inexpensive.
