Apartments project gets national honor
The Courtyard of Fort Wayne apartments for foster youth in transition to adulthood has been awarded the Audrey Nelson Community Development Achievement Award by the National Community Development Association.
The award recognizes exemplary uses of Community Development Block grants and other federal funding.
The $7.2 million Courtyard apartment complex will house young adults ages 18 to 25 who were former foster children.
The 47,000-square-foot building will be constructed on the site of the former Duemling Clinic, 2828 Fairfield Ave., and will feature 36 one- and two-bedroom apartments. The project is expected to be completed in June.
