Emanuel says the renovation of the complex, which can house about 90 people, cost $22 million.

Emanuel says this apartment project will give families access to affordable housing and various on-site social services, including job readiness training, mental health and drug abuse counseling.

The building has been designated a city landmark. The six-story, Art Deco structure was built in 1930 and operated as a hotel until the city purchased it in 2006.
