Neighborhood beat: Groundbreaking and job growth

New housing complex ready to break ground

After construction crews cleared brush and dirt and completed infrastructure work over the weekend, a new housing development on Mountain View Drive is finally ready to break ground.

Situated adjacent to the Glenn Square Shopping Center, the 70-unit Ridgeline Terrace affordable housing complex will include multiple buildings, a daycare and community center. It’s a collaboration between Cook Inlet Housing Authority, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation and two private developers.

Sezy Gerow-Hanson, the housing authority’s director of public and resident relations, said developers hope to finish construction by the end of 2015.
