Government officials will cut the ribbon on Wednesday to mark the completion of Summer Town Estates III and break ground at the same time to commence the Summer Town Estates IV on Lada Avenue in Dededo.

Town Estates III will offer 66 three- and four-bedroom units, with energy-efficient appliances and features, compound surveillance. The housing complex includes on-site shopping mart/commercial building and state-of-the-art exercise facility/swimming pool and community center with meeting and function rooms .

“This will mark the completion of a sum total of 399 units of affordable housing within the Lada neighborhood,” states a press release from Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority.

Summer Town Estates IV will also break ground for the construction of 64 one- to three-bedroom units and will offer the same amenities as its predecessors.

Both projects will include partnerships with community organizations such as Flame Tree Freedom Center, Mañelu (formerly Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guam), and Micronesian Resource Center One-Stop Shop for the benefit of its residents. The projects were developed by Core Tech Development, which is part of its series of affordable housing projects for low-income families.

“As the demand for affordable housing increases, GHURA continues its mission of ‘Strengthening Families and Building Communities: One Project at a Time,’” said Ray Topasna, GUHRA ‘s executive director.

The ceremonies, which start at 10 a.m., will be led by Gov. Lourdes A. Leon Guerrero, Lt. Gov. Joshua F. Tenorio.
