Carolina Avenue Apartments has come to New Bern, providing an affordable housing option after extensive damage from Hurricane Florence, which caused many residents to be displaced. The Mosaic Development Group along with the New Bern Housing Authority and Better Vision Corporation partnered to develop this complex and will celebrate its official grand opening with a press conference and ribbon cutting with special guests.

This 84-unit, $13 million complex serves residents who earn up to 60% of area median income with some units reserved for those at 30% of the median income. It offers 18 one-bedroom units, 48 two bedroom units, and 18 three-bedroom units. Rents range from $283 to $580 a month for a one-bedroom, $328 to $680 a month for a two-bedroom, and $370 to $770 a month for a three-bedroom.
