– The State

The Columbia Housing Authority will receive $10 million in federal stimulus money to help build 60 affordable rental units and 36 homeownership units at The Village at River’s Edge. All units will be built with features such as thermopane windows, energy star appliances and plumbing fixtures that will conserve water.

The 28 acres for the $35 million project was purchased and cleared in 2001; it is located off River Drive in North Columbia.

Gilbert Walker, the Housing Authority’s executive director, said: “We are very excited about beginning this new project. We have had great success with building green units and are looking forward to seeing this community become reality.”
