The Enclave Apartments Celebrate Grand Opening
With help from Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), funds provided by the federal
department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and distributed by the State of
North Carolina, The Enclave neighborhood is now the home to 51 families. The Enclave,
a condominium neighborhood located off Shattalon Road in Winston-Salem, once consisted
of foreclosed, unfinished, abandoned condominiums which became a magnet for crime.
City and County leaders sought to transform and revitalize the area to create high
quality, affordable housing for individuals with fixed or low incomes. The funds
helped to create a safe and attractive living environment, complete with a clubhouse,
playground, and a workout facility, giving residents a place to be proud of. Miller-Valentine
Residential Development Company has finished 68 apartments and condos while simultaneously
giving hope to the occupants of The Enclave who, in the past, might have found it
difficult to find high quality, affordable housing. With inexpensive housing no
longer just a possibility, there is already a waiting list consisting on 120 hopeful
inhabitants who hope to be a part of The Enclave neighborhood.
The Enclave features 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, a community clubhouse, playground
and indoor workout facility.
