DADE CITY, FLA. — Housing Trust Group (HTG) has broken ground on Osprey Pointe, a 110-unit affordable housing community in Dade City, 40 miles north of downtown Tampa. Located at 13021 U.S. Highway, the property will offer 99 units for those making 60 percent or below the area median income (AMI), while 11 units will be reserved for those making at or below 40 percent AMI. The property will offer one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans with rents ranging from $544 to $1,044 per month. Communal amenities will include a fitness center, dog park, green space, gathering rooms and swimming pool. HTG expects the first units to be ready in April 2020.

Pasco County also contributed a $50,000 SHIP loan, and Florida Housing Finance Corp. provided $6 million in SAIL funds and $556,900 in ELI funds.
