The Enclave Apartments Celebrate Grand Opening
With help from Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), funds provided
by the federal department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and distributed
by the State of North Carolina, The Enclave neighborhood is now the home to 51 families.
The Enclave, a condominium neighborhood located off Shattalon Road in Winston-Salem,
once consisted of foreclosed, unfinished, abandoned condominiums which became a
magnet for crime. City and County leaders sought to transform and revitalize the
area to create high quality, affordable housing for individuals with fixed or low
incomes. The funds helped to create a safe and attractive living environment, complete
with a clubhouse, playground, and a workout facility, giving residents a place to
be proud of. Miller-Valentine Residential Development Company has finished 68 apartments
and condos while simultaneously giving hope to the occupants of The Enclave who,
in the past, might have found it difficult to find high quality, affordable housing.
With inexpensive housing no longer just a possibility, there is already a waiting
list consisting on 120 hopeful inhabitants who hope to be a part of The Enclave
The Enclave features 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, a community clubhouse, playground
and indoor workout facility.
