Park’s Edge Apartments

For years, the property formerly known as “Whitewood Village” suffered from severe neglect and mismanagement. AHIP bought the property in 2004 with a commitment to excellence and long-term affordability for low-income residents.

The property, once a headache for residents and neighbors alike, is now valued by the community and a value to the community. Park’s Edge not only meets the profound local need for low-cost rental housing, it sets out to build community cohesiveness and resident well-being through a year-round offering of wraparound programs, services and community partnerships.
