For one local family, Christmas has come early. New homebuyer, Shaniqua Rose, had always dreamed of owning a home and being able to raise her four-year old son there. This past Friday that dream of homeownership became a reality as Shaniqua closed on the purchase of her family’s first home.
The home is one of a total of 10 single-family homes that the City of Orlando’s Downtown Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is building in the Parramore neighborhood.
This project is part of the city’s overall efforts in revitalizing and investing in the Parramore neighborhood and ensuring access to quality, safe and affordable housing options for residents. Currently, the city has more than $12 million invested to bring new housing to Parramore, including partnerships that will add 500 new multifamily housing units and 57 new single-family homes.
Residents interested in purchasing one of the other new homes being constructed as part of this project can sign up online here.
