Commission spends $1M on public housing complex
A housing commission in the region has made $1-million worth of improvements to a public housing complex in the past two years.
The Niles Housing Commission complex, comprising 129 high-rise units and 50 scattered family homes, saw a number of improvements over the period, according to Fourmidable, a real estate management firm, last month.
Bingham Farms-based Fourmidable manages the complex.
"We are very pleased that we have been able to undertake so many improvement projects in such a short time span,” said Sanya Phillips, City of Niles community development director and commission spokesperson.
“While our residents are the direct beneficiaries of the work, the investment improves our entire community in terms of its economic development impact."

"We are very pleased with the progress we have been able to make on improving resident conditions in cooperation with the Niles Housing Commission," said Jeri Hays, CEO, Fourmidable. "We are looking forward to additional opportunities that will add value to the lives of our Niles residents.”
