New Sevier County affordable housing units one step closer to reality

New affordable housing units near Gatlinburg are one step closer to becoming reality.

Developers broke ground Tuesday for the “Watson Glades Place.” The 80-unit complex is being built with the help of the low-income tax credit program. We’re told it will feature one, two and three¬†bedroom¬†apartments — ranging in size from 750 to 1100 square feet. There will also be a community center, playground and computer room for residents.
