South Shore Commons Housing Project Gets Underway In Gary
A groundbreaking will be held today for South Shore Commons in Gary. The 60-unit housing development will be built on vacant property. City officials will join builders, and others, for the ceremony at 10 a.m. Edgewater Systems, UP Development LLC, Broadway Area Community Development Corp., NSP Consultants and the city of Gary are partnering on the 12-million-dollar project east of Grant Street on 20th Avenue, between Lincoln and Pierce streets. Edgewater System’s president and CEO Danita Johnson Hughes says South Shore Commons housing will not be a shelter, but a first step for residents to be able to transition into more traditional housing.
