Carrfour Supportive Housing has received the green light to build an affordable housing complex in Pembroke Pines for people coping with mental illness. The city’s Planning and Zoning Board unanimously approved plans for Southwest Hammocks on December 9.
“Carrfour is proud to partner with the city and multiple partners in bringing a prototype, recovery-oriented supportive [affordable] housing community to the city’s Health Park,” said Miami partner David J. Coviello, who represents Carrfour in the application. “Services will be offered to residents that promote residential stability, self-sufficiency, independence and wellness.”
David spoke to the South Florida Business Journal, stating that residents will live independently and will be provided support to recover from mental illness.
The project, which will have 100 units and 5,000 square feet of support services, was designed by Miami-based Zyscovich Architects.
