A new housing community geared toward working class residents will soon be going up on Tucson’s south side.
Scottsdale-based Greenlight Communities and Tucson-based Holualoa Cos. plan to build Cabana Bridges, a 288-unit complex at The Bridges, the mixed-use development near Park Avenue and Interstate 10.
Greenlight focuses on building “attainable housing” which the company defines as the void between luxury apartments and restricted affordable housing units.
“What we’ve seen in the last few years is a run-up of rents and people who make $40,000 a year not having an option,” said Dan Richards, one of the partners for Greenlight. “It’s just not right.”
