Utah Update: ADA Units Completed, Section 8 Vouchers Transferred in Rehab

Several months into the rehabilitation of two affordable housing communities in Ogden, Utah, CPP’s $14.3 million investment is on track to enrich the lives of more than 100 residents in the region. The expansive developments, including an unusual engineering task to fortify a failing retaining wall by a creek that runs through one of the properties, will bring needed improvements to both communities and prevent the rents from increasing to market rate for the next 20 years.

Construction has been underway at the 58-unit Normandie Apartments at 610 1st St. and the 40-unit Osmond Heights, 630 23rd St., for most of the summer. This week, the ADA units were completed at both communities.

Additionally, CPP recently closed on a transfer agreement of 54 project-based Section 8 vouchers at a third location and applied them to the communities to deepen the affordability. The vouchers, which took effect at Normandie and Osmond Heights on Aug. 1, are designed to help enrich residents’ lives, and ultimately help increase the overall affordability within Ogden.

Throughout both properties, complete and extensive renovations will be made to improve the lifestyle of residents. These renovations will include full kitchen remodeling, improvements to bathrooms, new carpeting throughout units and common areas, ADA accessibility added throughout exterior spaces, new outdoor playground equipment, improved outdoor spaces, and remodeled laundry rooms and management offices.

“These rehabilitations mark CPP’s entry into the Utah market, and we could not be happier with the progress that has been made so far,” said Anand Kannan, president of CPP. “We look forward to completing this rehab on schedule by early next year and serving this community for many years to come.”
