Low-income housing goes up on SC site hit by Hugo

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- After almost a quarter century, the city of Charleston is again building low-income housing in an area that was ravaged by Hurricane Hugo.

The Category 4 storm back in 1989 destroyed the low-income Ansonborough Homes near the Cooper River. Since then, the land has remained an empty field.

But on Tuesday, Mayor Joe Riley and city officials will complete a land transfer allowing the city Housing Authority to proceed with construction of 55 new apartments for low-income senior citizens.

The units are scheduled to open by Christmas of next year.
