Affordable Housing Renovation Tour: The Douglass at Page Woodson
Wed, September 27, 2017 at 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM CDT
You are invited to tour the newly opened THE DOUGLASS AT PAGE WOODSON. Join us for this free tour on September 27, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at 600 N. High in Oklahoma City. The Developer will be available to discuss development.
The developers converted a school building dating back to 1911 into 134 apartments for low income households. Tax Credits including bonds and 4% low income housing tax credits were used to finance the $28 million project.
In addition to apartments, Progress OKC, a 501c3 nonprofit Community Development Corporation offices in one wing to help serve a long neglected northeast Oklahoma City neighborhood.
2017 Regional Housing Forums: Affordable Housing Toolkit
