Apartments For Detroit Homeless Vets To Open 7-14-2010

DETROITA four-story, 150-unit apartment building is opening in Detroit to provide long-term housing and care for homeless veterans.
The $23 million Piquette Square is slated to open Thursday afternoon in Detroit's New Center Area.
It is financed through tax credits, bond funding, chronic homeless funds and grants.
Mayor Dave Bing, Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano and City Council President Charles Pugh are expected to attend Thursday's grand opening.
Southwest Housing Solutions developed, owns and manages the project which it said is one of the largest of its kind in the nation.
The nonprofit estimates that more than 4,000 homeless veterans are in the Detroit area.
Onsite job training and counseling also will be offered at Piquette Square.
