The complex is under construction and expected to finish by early 2025, said Lyn Hikida, a spokesperson for MidPen Housing.
Units will be filled with referred households from the Housing Authority of Santa Cruz County and from the county’s Smart Path assessment system, Hikida said. Thirteen households that were relocated in the building’s redevelopment also will be offered space in the new complex, Hikida said.
