COLORADO SPRINGS — Individuals and families trying to leave homelessness will soon have another place to go.

A vacant lot at the corner of Galley and Academy in Colorado Springs will be developed into a 50-unit apartment complex called "The Commons."

"It's really to help people who've experienced homelessness for over twelve months, or who have had intermittent homelessness over the last couple of years," said Beth Hall Roalstad from Homeward Pikes Peak.

The project was made possible through a low-income tax credit from the Colorado Housing Finance Authority.

Developers hope to start construction by the end of the year.
