Carrfour, Pride Center to Develop Affordable Community with Focus on LGBT Renters

by Jeff Shaw

WILTON MANORS, FLA. — Miami-based Carrfour Supportive Housing has teamed with The Pride Center to build an affordable housing development with a special focus on aging members of the LGBT community.

The project, known as The Residences at Equality Park, will be located in Wilton Manors, a city in Broward County. Phase I will feature 48 apartments, 34 of which will be reserved for low-income seniors living with disabling conditions due to HIV/AIDS and other challenges. The remaining units will be reserved for seniors earning 60 percent or less of the area median income (AMI), or roughly $35,000 per year according to Carrfour.

Phase I will break ground in the fourth quarter of 2017 with an expected completion in late 2018. Phase II, which will comprise 74 units, will begin at a later date.

The Pride Center, a nonprofit LGBT community center, will provide residents with on-site services such as recreation, healthcare consulting and counseling. Carrfour will serve as the project’s developer and operator.
