Low-cost housing center Escobedo to open in Mesa

The Arizona Republic , November 29, 2013

A new era in low-cost housing dawns in Mesa when Escobedo at Verde Vista, 125 E. University Drive, hosts its grand opening 4-5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4.

The ceremony will mark completion of the first phase of the development, which is replacing the abandoned World War II-era Escobedo Apartments with modern, rent-subidized units.

It was among three tax-credit-financed housing projects approved last year by the City Council and the Arizona state housing department. The others are a senior complex on First Avenue and apartments at the La Mesita Family Shelter on West Main Street.

Escobedo is a project of Save the Family Foundation and several partner organizations.
