At this time, construction is continuing on schedule at East Haven, the new affordable apartment complex being built near the corner of U.S. 70 and Riverwood Road in Swannanoa. But representatives from Mountain Housing Opportunities (MHO), the local nonprofit managing the project, anticipate that there will likely be coronavirus-related delays at some point. MHO will be following all federal, state, and local guidelines for construction and other safety issues related to the crisis. The project was originally slated for completion in late summer or fall of this year.
Although MHO had hoped to start taking applications for apartments in April, that date has been pushed back to May at the earliest, but more likely, June. In the meantime, anyone who thinks they might be interested in applying can call Mountain Housing Opportunities, 828-254-4030, to have their name placed on the East Haven list. This list will determine the order in which applications are reviewed, so getting your name on the list is important.
