Project has nearly 60 affordable housing units

The developer of the Belleair Place apartment complex is moving forward with plans to build a new $18 million apartment community that will include units considered affordable housing. A trust established by the Pinellas County Housing Finance Authority bought the land on Clearwater-Largo Road, near Ponce de Leon Boulevard, last week. The new 144-unit mixed-income project called Bayside Court will have nearly 60 units classified as affordable. Largo and Pinellas County contributed about $3.3 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant funds to buy the parcels, which totaled about 7.4 acres. One of the properties was the site of the former No Go Largo Village mobile home park.
