VANCOUVER, WA-In a joint venture with the Vancouver Housing Authority, Miami-based Lennar Affordable Communities is proposing a 160-unit apartment building with ground floor retail at the southwest corner of West Eighth and Esther streets.

The housing authority still needs to purchase the land from the American Legion, which has put a $1.75 million price tag on it. The complex, if built, will include a mix of low-income and market-rate units.

Planned ground-floor tenants are the Vancouver Farmers Market and a day care operation. The architect is Portland-based Zimmer Gunsul Frasca. Construction timelines and development costs were not immediately available.

Nearby Prestige Development plans to break ground next spring on a 52-unit middle-income property at Seventh Avenue and Broadway. The housing authority is a partner in this project as well. The project is valued at $6 million.
