TAMPA, FL-Public housing is entering a new era with a new face in East Tampa, FL where Marlton, NJ-based Michaels Development Co. has broken ground on the second 358-unit phase of the planned $23 million, 559-unit Belmont Heights Estates. Duplex, four-plex and single-family homes make up the community.

Clark Realty Builders of Bethesda, MD is the general contractor for Michaels and co-developer Tampa Housing Authority.

“Belmont Heights Estates is the Taj Mahal of East Tampa,” says Housing Authority executive director Jerome D. Ryans. “Our goal has always been to change the face of public housing in this community.” He says Belmont Heights is “indicative of the change and how public housing has been previously viewed locally.”

The shelter components are designed in the Florida Crafstman style, while the community buildings are designed in the Spanish Colonial motif prevalent in the area. All residences have front or side porches, a customary amenity in traditional Florida neighborhoods.

The mixed-income community includes market-rate, tax-credit and public housing units. Belmont Heights Estates is north of Ybor City, FL, about three miles from Interstate 4 and State Road 275.
