From The Streets To A Home

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – More than 100 South Floridian families who were once in poverty or living on the streets now have a place to call home.

Friday, the Pinnacle Housing Group launched the grand opening of its new, affordable housing complex, Vista Mar, located in the Wynwood District of Miami on the corner of 36th Street and 5th Avenue.

For $375 a month, 110 disadvantaged families will live in one of the nicest affordable housing communities in South Florida with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, a fitness center, bay views, and even a library and business center.

In addition to providing a home to almost 200 people, Pinnacle spent nearly $30 million on the construction of the LEED certified Silver Vista Mar complex and created more than 300 permanent jobs.

County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, County Commissioner Audrey Edmonson, City Mayor Tomas Regalado, City Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones, and tenants of the fully occupied Vista Mar community joined in on the celebration.
