MILTON — Construction is underway for a senior housing complex on the north side of Berryhill Road between Dogwood Drive and Northrop Road.

The low income-housing should be open by August of 2018, according to TVC Development President Ryan Hoover.

Carter Crossing, the name of the housing project, will be a three-story, single building with full kitchens, a fitness center, a theater, a dog park, gardens for residents to plant food or flowers, a walking path, a covered pavilion, two barbecue grills, two elevators, some storage units, a computer lab, and a game room with seating, according to Hoover.

“Housing is restricted to seniors 55 and older who make less than 60 percent of area median income,” Hoover said.

“We’re planning to be open at the end of summer of next year, probably August of 2018,” Hoover said. “We try and build them in 10 months and start leasing about four months before opening.”

TVC Development is part of Vestcor, a multi-family housing development company based in Jacksonville, Fla.

“This is something the community has a need for,” Milton Planner and Zoning Officer Tim Milstead said. “They’re excited about being able to fulfill that need.

"They’ve gone to great lengths to present a quality product that will benefit the city — quality from an aesthetic and economic standpoint.”
