Jamestown Affordable Housing unit would repurpose old Eagles Club building

JAMESTOWN, N.D. - The city of Jamestown has approved the revitalization of a vacant building to a four-story low income housing project.

The Eagle Flats project would provide 33 units for low and moderate income people.

Eagle Flats would re-purpose the existing Eagles Club building that has been vacant for more than 15-years.

Commonwealth Development was awarded $720,000 in credit authority.

The building renovations would cost an estimated $8.6 million.

Jamestown Mayor Dwaine Heinrich says the city council backs the addition to the community.

“A big part of it is the revitalization of that area, some of the housing people indicate that there’s a need in Jamestown particularly for three bedroom apartments,” says Heinrich.

Eagle Flats would provide 15 three-bedroom units.
