Groundbreaking set next month for Heritage Crossing

Groundbreaking for the 260-unit Heritage Crossing project, to be built on the site of the old Murphy Homes public housing complex in West Baltimore, is tentatively set for mid-May, Chickie Grayson, president of Enterprise Homes, the project's developer, said yesterday.

When completed in 2 1/2 years, the $60.4 million project, built with public and private funds, will include 75 rental units and 185 homes.

Construction had been delayed for several months because of a dispute between the city and the American Civil Liberties Union about whether public housing funds were being used for market-rate housing. The matter was resolved this year.
