Want an affordable apartment in Parramore Oaks?
Want to get an apartment at Parramore Oaks -- the new development under construction on the site of the old Parramore Village community?
An informational meeting on Parramore Oaks will be held Wednesday, April 17th, 6:30 p.m. at the Jackson Neighborhood Center.
The lack of affordable housing is especially critical in the Parramore community where many people are getting squeezed out by gentrification being caused by the opening of the University of Central Florida’s downtown campus and the planned demolition of Orlando public housing projects.
While city officials keep boasting they are building affordable housing in the Parramore area, a recent article by a 32805OrlNews correspondent showed most Parramore residents won’t be able to afford the housing being built in the community.
Many rents in the Parramore area are soaring to $1,000 or more. Most Parramore residents – most of whom work – cannot afford a monthly rent of more than $350.
