Miller-Valentine Group and Frontier Community Services are developing Fairway Breeze Apartments, a 48-unit affordable multi-family project in El Reno.Scheduled to open next year at 600 South Country Club Road, the development’s price tag is $8 million, the El Reno Tribune reported.
Although Fairway Breeze is classified as affordable, Miller-Valentine said in a statement that prospective residents must be able to demonstrate verifiable income, have no outstanding balance from previous rental residences and must not have a criminal record. Section 8 applicants are not eligible.
Two-bedroom units will rent for about $800 per month and three-bedroom apartments will be priced at around $900, Mark Sandidge, director of El Reno Community Services, told the Tribune. The Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency and the city of El Reno are providing additional support.
Billed as pet-friendly, the fairway Breeze will feature fully-equipped gourmet kitchens, energy-efficient appliances, patio or balcony with extra storage and central air conditioning. The community will feature a clubhouse which includes a computer room and a fitness center. The community grounds will include a playground and outdoor picnic areas.
Miller-Valentine’s president of residential property management, Jim Fenwick said in a statement: “It is our privilege to touch and enhance the quality of living and give our residents piece of mind while living at Fairway Breeze Apartments.”
