Two dozen new housing units to be built on Douglas

Island Hill Association has announced success of its three prototype units on Douglas’s Cordova Street.

“They all have great views,” said Wayne Coogan of Coogan Construction, to the Juneau Affordable Housing Committee on Tuesday.

The company plans to start construction in 2013 on as many as 24 two-bedroom one-bath apartments. Eventually Coogan plans to build 56 units. However, he will need to permit the remaining 32 units.

The first 24 apartments are expected to rent for $1,200 per month without utilities.
