New Apartment Complex Coming to Prince George

Posted: Updated:

PRINGE GEORGE, Va. - More than a hundred new apartments are coming to Prince George.

Developers of a new $20 million apartment complex, aimed, in part, at helping low-income households find affordable housing, broke ground in Prince George on Monday.

The apartments are being constructed on a five-acre plot of land near South Park Mall and Fort Lee.

Nonprofit South Carolina developer Humanities Foundation broke ground Monday on Puddledock Place Apartments.

The planned community will be constructed in two phases and is set to feature 168 units, with an estimated development cost of $20.7 million.

"It would be an opportunity for folks to move to the area and locate here," says Prince George County Planning Manager Douglas Miles. "In the planning process, we looked to try to cut down on people's commutes.  A lot of people in the Richmond area commute more than 30 to 45 minutes a day each way to work."

The project is expected to be finished at the end of 2014.
