The St. John Apartments 1300 affordable housing complex, which has recently undergone a renovation completed through the Miami-Dade Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2, opened today. The project, which is located at 1300 NW 2nd Avenue, is the first in a series of projects undertaken by St. John Community Development Corporation since they received a funding award from the U.S. Department of Housing’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2. “St. John CDC is committed to continuing the rich tradition of building affordable housing units which will transform the urban fabric of Overtown for years to come,” said CEO Ola Aluko. — Alexander Britell
