Upcoming: Redmond Street Rentals
For Immediate Release – March 7, 2017
Jackson Hole, WYO-One of the community’s clearest clarion calls was answered yesterday when Town and County elected officials approved $4.05M from Housing Authority and Town coffers for the construction of Redmond Hall, a 26-unit affordable rental project located in East Jackson.
Slated to be the first affordable rental project in Jackson, Redmond Hall will provide long term and stable rental homes for 55 dedicated members of the community. Ground breaking is set for spring 2017 and Housing Trust executive director, Anne Cresswell estimates a 16-month construction schedule.
“Because of this timely decision to fund Redmond Hall and value engineering we are proud to be building a quality rental product at $230/per square foot,” Cresswell said.
She also thanked Hawtin Jorgensen Architects, Shaw Construction, and Rocky Mountain Bank who she said were integral to getting this project in the ground.
“This winter was tough for our key service providers, some who were unable to safely travel to and from work,” said Cresswell. “I know Redmond Hall will provide invaluable relief for those who wish to live in the community they serve.”
For years, our elected officials have repeatedly touted their deep commitment to protecting the character of Jackson by providing affordable housing. And in a show of united support, all 10 Town Councilors and County Commissioners voted to approved funding. “After months of negotiations coupled with incredible philanthropic support, the board and staff of the Housing Trust are pleased with the end result,” said Cresswell.
She added, “This process has been filled with unknowns for all who were involved. But now we’ve opened up the door to realizing effective private and public partnerships.”
