The more than 20 year-old Duck Park Vista Apartments complex in downtown Phoenix is in line for an extensive upgrading and reconfiguration.
The facility is owned by the city’s housing authority Phoenix Housing.
Located at 1125 N. Third Street, across the street from the historic Grace Lutheran Church, the complex’s 56 affordable units will be expanded into 201 units.
As planned, the new layout of the complex will see 75 workforce units and 126 affordable units.
Also included: a community room, fitness center, commercial space on the building’s first floor, and outdoor courtyard area.
A release from Phoenix Housing said the Duck Park’s upgrading is primarily designed to “create more affordable housing opportunities in the heart of the city.”
Work on the upgrading of the complex could begin in the fall of 2021, with a rough November 2023 completion date.
