Tenants welcomed to new Melrose Avenue Apartments
A new affordable housing complex in Melrose opened Friday, providing homes to veterans and people who were once homeless.
Dozens of families received an official welcome home at the new 176-unit Morris Avenue Apartments.
The 15-story, environmentally friendly building includes solar panels, retail space, Energy Star appliances and 75 parking spots.
While all of the apartments are reserved for low-income families and people who were formerly homeless, 17 are specifically designated for homeless veterans.
