The Pleasant View Apartment complex in central Fresno got a new community center this week, a year after the new owners announced a big renovation project for the affordable housing development.
Community Development Trust, a national real estate investment trust company, and LINC Housing Corporation, a Long Beach-based nonprofit affordable homebuilder, partnered last July to buy the 60-unit complex for a little more than $2.5 million.
The owners announced back then that it would renovate the 43-year-old complex which is home to seniors and low-income families.
The 1,325-square-foot community center was part of the first phase of construction. The building, at 3513 N. Pleasant Ave., will allow residents to gather for on-site activities such as afterschool programs, health and wellness workshops and special events.
The second phase of rehabilitation will start in January. Plans are for full kitchen renovations, roof and window replacements and new exterior paint.
