Clinton Commons pix 1Bridgeport – POKO Partners LLC is proud to announce that applications are now being taken for its latest affordable housing project‐Clinton Commons Apartments‐located at 91 Clinton Avenue, Bridgeport.

An elevator will serve upper floors, and there are 27 handicap accessible units. Ample parking is available for tenants. Clinton Commons promises to be a cornerstone development for the ongoing revitalization efforts on the West Side.

According to POKO Partners President Ken Olson, “as Bridgeport continues to seek to revitalize itself through a bold Master Plan, there are crucial aspects of the City’s dynamic that are needed
affirmative action/equal opportunity employer before the revitalization vision can fully take hold. There is little doubt that Bridgeport has a critical gap between the demand for and the supply of quality affordable housing with a supportive services component. High quality affordable housing along with supportive services is a priority for this region and we believe that Clinton Commons Apartments will satisfy just this need.”
