Work started this week on a 60-unit affordable housing rental project in Perris, a community that advocates say can use additional affordable apartments. AMCAL Multi-Housing Inc. broke ground on the project at a formal ceremony Tuesday. Guests included Perris Mayor Daryl Busch, Riverside County Supervisor Marion Ashley and State Senator Bill Emmerson.
The project is called Mercado and will be located close to Mercado Park and Perris Elementary School. It’s also close to some retail locations, a medical clinical and a bus stop. The Spanish-designed complex will have two- and three-bedroom apartments with pool and recreational amenities. It will be offered to families that fall between 30 percent and 60 percent of the median income for Riverside County, according to a statement. The complex is expected to be completed in 2012. AMCAL built several affordable housing projects in 2009 but this is its first recent Inland venture.
