Last week, Carson officials and development firm Thomas Safran & Associates broke ground on Veterans Village, a new affordable housing complex at the corner of Carson and Figueroa Streets.

The project, located just east of the Harbor Freeway, will consist of a four-story building featuring 51 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments reserved for veterans.  Plans also call for 2,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, a 73-car garage and open space amenities, reports the Daily Breeze.
