More than just a new affordable housing complex, the city, state, and federal officials consider Perry Place to be a victory of intergovernmental cooperation, public-private partnership, and the beginning of a true revival in the city of Brunswick.
The project represents a $12.9 million investment in Brunswick by the city, a federal disaster relief grant, state tax credits, and W.H. Gross Construction Co., developer of the complex. It’s one of several major investments in development in the city limits this year that add up to around $30 million, said Brunswick Economic and Community Development Director Travis Stegall.
When it’s finished, 57 families will be able to find affordable homes at 2435 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
