West Point Village, a $13.45 million garden-style affordable housing project in West Point, is expected to be completed by July 2023, according to a press release on the project.

Capstone Building Corp., a premier general contractor based in Birmingham, Alabama, recently broke ground on the project with developer Pennrose, LLC and architect Kitchen &Associates.

West Point Village will encompass 72 units across 79,389 square feet, according to a press release about the project. It will feature six unit types ranging with one to three bedrooms and will include a total of 148 bedrooms and 92 baths.

In addition to the 72 units, the property will also have a community garden, clubhouse, meeting/community room, exercise facility, off street parking and on-site management.

“Capstone Building Corp. is looking forward to being a part of another impactful project by Pennrose, LLC,” says Jay Chapman, President & Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Building Corp. “We are excited to provide quality affordable housing to the West Point community with this new garden-style development.”    

The West Point Village is located at 1650 E 10th Street in West Point.

“There is a need for high-quality, affordable housing in the area,” said Amon Martin, regional vice president at Pennrose. “The site is also attractive for affordable housing development with strong employment opportunities (Kia Plant) nearby and development along the 10th Street corridor, where the City has plans for additional commercial investment.”

Martin said the project will be for households at or below 60% of the area median income, which starts at $29,940 for a one-person household.

The West Point Housing Authority and Collaborative Housing Solutions are partners on the project.
