Delray Breaks Ground on Island Cove Affordable Apartments

The tight grip of South Florida’s affordable housing crisis is beginning to loosen in Delray Beach.

On Aug. 5, Delray city officials broke ground on Island Cove, a community of affordable apartments located along Southwest 10th Street west of Pine Grove Elementary School. The rental complex will serve as affordable housing for those earning between 30-80 percent of the area median income (AMI) of Palm Beach County, which is currently $90,300 per the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.
