SWEETWATER, Fla. — CREI has received approval from the Sweetwater City Commission to construct Li’l Abner III, an affordable seniors housing expansion in Sweetwater, a suburb west of Miami.
The project will rise next to its sister buildings, Li’l Abner I and II, and add 316 units to the complex.
“CREI Holdings is committed to providing affordable and workforce housing for seniors who are being squeezed out of the Miami-Dade market by skyrocketing rents,” says Raul Rodriguez, managing member of CREI Holdings. “We decided to build Li’l Abner III after experiencing firsthand the urgent need for affordable housing. For example, we currently have over 1,000 people on a waitlist for Lil Abner I, which only has 87 units.”
