(KSL News) -- In an effort to curb the city's homeless problem, some new housing apartments are springing up in Salt Lake.
Greenstreet Partners has purchased land on 200 West from the city's Redevelopment Agency... and today held a groundbreaking for it's Second West Apartments.
It'll cost tenants around 300 to 600 dollars a month to rent one of the 25 units. And it's meant to house homeless and disabled people.
Mayor Rocky Anderson "TOGETHER WITH MORE PROJECTS LIKE THIS WE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD UPON OUR CITY STRENGTHS AS A FIRST RATE PLACE TO LIVE, WORK, AND PLAY"
Commercial businesses will also be housed on the apartment's first floor. City officials hope that will make it a more transit oriented area.
