Valley Real Estate Log: Senior housing construction begins

The Fresno Housing Authority is busy these days. Not only is the nonprofit housing agency planning to demolish downtown Fresno’s historic Droge Building on Monday, but it also has broken ground on a $6 million senior housing development in southwest Fresno. The authority announced Thursday that construction has started on Bridges at Florence, a 33-unit apartment rental complex at 649 E. Florence Ave., near Edison High School. The project will turn a blighted parcel of land into a vibrant senior community with picnic areas, a community garden and a resource building for activities, the authority said.
