Three affordable housing projects that would have been completed this year have been mothballed after the city’s developer encountered delays.
The three projects had planned to provide the city with as many as 74 affordable rental units in three locations across Flagstaff and would have been built by Illinois-based Brinshore Development.
But after the Flagstaff City Council approved the projects in March 2018, Brinshore encountered a number of challenges that delayed and eventually ended the project, said city housing manager Justyna Costa.
Two of the developments were planned for east Flagstaff on a 1.38-acre parcel on North West Street near the Cedar Avenue Safeway and a 1.37-acre parcel on North Izabel Street next to a skate park and community garden.
