MIAMI, FL --  Developer Atlantic | Pacific Communities (A|P Communities), a subsidiary of Atlantic | Pacific Companies (A|P), and partner Palmetto Homes are proud to announce the grand opening of Island Living, a 70-unit, mixed-use, affordable housing development located in the heart of Overtown.

WHEN:    May 23rd 2016 at 5:00 PM

WHERE: 1201 NW 3rd Ave Miami, FL

"We are honored to have played a role in the CRA’s vison for revitalizing Overtown," says Kenneth Naylor of A|P Communities. 

"We've built a business on creating superior housing for low and moderate income households.  When we can do that in harmony with the revitalization of an amazing neighborhood while also creating local job opportunities and also creating an eco-friendly building, we consider that a homerun.” 

Clarence Woods, Director of the CRA says, "Island Living is an excellent example of a developer taking a comprehensive look at the overall community and contributing in a top-to-bottom manner. The revitalization of any neighborhood must start with providing appropriate housing for its residents as well as new populations coming in; this property is the ideal model to meet that need."

Island Living is particularly unique, in that it has contributed to the Overtown community from the ground up. Ario Lundy, CEO of Palmetto Homes and a partner on the Island Living project, launched a special campaign at the onset of the building's groundbreaking when he hired young Overtown residents from Miami-Dade County's Boot Camp program to assist in the construction of the property.

Boot Camp offers young men and women who have been convicted of a crime an alternative to prison time, while teaching them a trade and allowing them to earn an income.
