Merrill's Park Place housing project ahead of schedule
MERRILL - At this pace, a major housing project in Merrill will be done ahead of schedule.

The renovation of the Park Place Apartments is the final phase of a years-long project in the city.

Renovations started after many tenants moved to the new Stonebridge Apartments public housing complex across the street. Park Place living spaces will become bigger, safer, and more accessible.

"It increases the apartment size in Park Place by 50 percent. It makes it more accessible for handicapped tenants. It has more safety features and common area amenities for the tenants," said Merrill Area Housing Authority Executive Director Paul Russell.


New tenants can start moving into Park Place in October, after the work is done.

The project costs nearly $17 million.
