Housing Trust Group begins construction on senior apartments in Miami


Housing Trust Group (HTG) has started construction on a new $18.5 million affordable housing development for seniors in downtown Miami’s Overtown neighborhood.

Father Marquess-Barry Apartments will provide 60 new affordable one- and two-bedroom apartments for residents 62 and older. The development is a partnership between developer HTG, Miami-Dade County, and the nonprofit Rainbow Housing Corp., which granted HTG a 99-year ground lease to build on the site.

Community amenities include a large multipurpose club room for community and property gatherings, a fitness center, a library and media center with computers, a secure package-delivery locker system, and indoor mailroom, and bike racks.

The building design team for Father Marquess-Barry Apartments is general contractor BDI Construction, architect Modis Architects, engineering firm HSQ Engineers, interior designer B Pila Design Studio, and landscape architect JBC Planning and Design.

The project is scheduled to be completed in April 2021.
