LEXINGTON, Kentucky (TRANSYLVANIA UNIVERSITY) – Transylvania University announced that Marquard Field complex, home to the Pioneer baseball program for 20 years, will soon be the new home to a 12.5 acre affordable housing development.
A consortium of local banks has created a joint entity to purchase the land along Radcliffe Road and Haggard Lane from the university. Local affordable housing developers will build a combination of housing types on the property.
Lexington Habitat for Humanity's CEO, Darryl Neher, is grateful for the opportunity. "This development is a symbol of what we can achieve together. It underscores the importance of partnerships in scaling up affordable home ownership opportunities. I am profoundly grateful and excited for our involvement in this project. We will be integral in turning this vision into reality, bringing much-needed affordable housing to our neighbors in Lexington."
