CALEXICO — At three separate ceremonies across the Imperial Valley on Friday, including the last ceremony of the day in Calexico, Jim Schmid, president of Solano Beach-based Chelsea Investment Corp., and area dignitaries broke ground where 80-unit apartment complexes will be built.
Prospective tenants must meet low-income eligibility requirements to rent one of the one-, two- or three-bedroom apartments.
The three complexes all will be finished by December, Schmid said.
The air-conditioned apartments will include amenities such as computer rooms and laundry facilities, he said.
The complex in Calexico will be called the Calexico Family Apartments. It will be built at the northwest corner of Meadows Road and Meadows Drive next to Chelsea's recently opened senior apartment complex, Villa de las Flores.
The complex in Imperial will be called Villa Lara Apartments and will be at 2385 Myrtle Road.
The complex in Brawley is called Brawley Family Apartments and will be built at the southwest corner of Best Road and C Street.
