Students from Gibson Charter School tour a two-bedroom apartment at Courtside Apartments, after they led the Pledge of Allegiance during the grand opening ceremony for the new affordable housing complex in Miami's historic Overtown community. The grand opening was Friday, Sept. 23, 2016, at 1699 NW Fourth Ave. The project is the result of a joint venture between Housing Trust Group, one of the largest developers of affordable housing in Florida, and NBA legend Alonzo Mourning, director of AM Affordable Housing, Inc. The 84-unit building has one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, already leased, and a long waiting list, due to the shortage of affordable housing.
