Doors swung open for new tenants at NHE Inc.’s latest affordable housing development, Gaffney’s Linden Square on April 21.

The 24-unit apartment community at 160 Stuard St. was funded through the South Carolina Housing Authority’s Small Rental Development Program, according to a news release. Creative Builders of Greenville partnered with NHE Development to launch the project, which offers apartments from 752 square feet to 1,187 square feet to tenants with household incomes ranging from 30% to 80% of Cherokee County’s area median level.

Each unit includes one to three bedrooms and are Energy Star certified, which means they are 20% more energy efficient than non-certified apartments, according to the release. The complex is one of many NHE Inc. affordable housing communities across the Upstate, including locations in Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson.
