Planning for Pinellas Heights Senior Apartments
The Pinellas County Housing Authority broke ground on a new 153 unit apartment community for seniors in November 2012. Pinellas Heights will be a mixed-finance redevelopment of PCHA’s Greenhouse Shoppes site located in Largo, FL. Norstar Development USA, LLP is the developer for the project.
Over $17 million construction dollars will be infused into the local economy through this project during 2012 - 2013. Approximately 200 jobs will be created during the 18 month construction of Pinellas Heights. Additional jobs will be created for management and maintenance of the development. The total impact on employment is expected to be 395 jobs including direct, indirect, and induced.
