New residential complex brings affordable housing to Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – The Housing Authority of the City of Fort Lauderdale celebrated a momentous occasion on Tuesday as the grand opening of a brand-new residential complex, Poinciana Crossing, took place.

This cutting-edge structure will provide affordable housing to Fort Lauderdale residents with limited financial resources, and it will serve as a beacon of hope for those struggling to make ends meet.

Developed by Atlantic Pacific Companies, in collaboration with the housing agency, Poinciana Crossing is a $34 million architectural masterpiece built on an old rail yard, offering 113 one- and two-bedroom units. Its strategic location provides easy access to all that Fort Lauderdale and nearby South Florida communities have to offer, enabling residents to experience a comfortable lifestyle with all the necessary amenities right at their fingertips.

One of the most striking features of this new building is the 36-foot tall wave-inspired art installation that stands tall and proud, providing a sense of pride and beauty for residents and creating a new landmark sculpture for the community to enjoy.

Carolyn Edmond, a proud grandmother of 15 and mother of six grown children, spoke at the opening ceremony, expressing how rising rents in Broward County have made it challenging to find high-quality apartments that suit her health needs. Poinciana Crossing is a godsend for people like her, as it offers affordable and comfortable housing, making it a desirable place to call home.

What’s more, the building is conveniently located within walking distance of several local amenities such as a bank, hospital, and grocery store, making life even more comfortable and convenient for its residents.

In conclusion, the opening of Poinciana Crossing marks a new dawn for Fort Lauderdale’s affordable housing initiative, and its impact will be felt by generations to come. The building promises to be a source of hope and inspiration for those struggling with housing issues and a testament to the power of collaboration and commitment to social good.
