Fox Jewelry to bring affordable housing?

Mr. Fox of Fox Jewelers says he is currently planning on at least 10 units that will be for sale at a predicted price range of $65,000 to $75,000 per unit.  Mr. Fox said he expects the units will range from 800 to 900 square feet.  Though this is not a huge number of units, it is a small start towards getting the affordable housing downtown that everyone seems to be vocalizing.    The units will be located above Fox Jewelers at the corner of Bay and Broad Streets downtown.  Currently there is a boarding space above the jewelry shop.  Mr. Fox said there may be a mixture of rental and owned units in the above his shop, and that is why he can only commit verbally at this time to 10 units for sale.  Expected completion date of the renovations is within the next 12 to 18 months.
