Last September, we were devastated to learn that our new affordable housing development for veterans and families, El Nuevo Amanecer, was destroyed by a fire. El Nuevo Amanecer included 61 units for homeless veterans and low-income families and was in the final construction phase. Unfortunately, this tragedy significantly delayed progress on the project and affected our timeline to provide quality housing to veterans and families on the Eastside.
However, we are happy to announce that construction on El Nuevo Amanecer is currently underway and will finish by mid 2023. We anticipate housing applications to be made available in early 2023 and will post an update on our website.
ELACC is committed to working with our partners to rebuild this development and bring desperately needed housing affordability to our community. In addition to housing, El Nuevo Amanecer will also support the small business ecosystem on the Eastside with 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
We are working with our partners at Eastside Leads to support the neighboring families and small businesses displaced by the fire. If you would like to help our neighbors, please click here.
