What's old is new again for one Davenport building.
The old Jackson elementary school building has been transformed into low–income affordable housing.
The eleven million dollar renovation is south of Locust on the west side of town.
It has space for 40 families to move in.
Today, dozens of people in the community celebrated the building's revival.
"It's awesome. I just thank God that I was able to get in to the place. I had tried several other places... because of my income, I could not qualify, but I thank God," says Bernice Marie Jones, Lives in the Jackson Renaissance.
There's still a lot of space available for rent. Contact the Jackson Renaissance Apartments for more details.
