DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, local officials and community leaders will hold a grand opening celebration for the historic Saint Rita Apartments.

After a $7.2 million development project, the once-vacant building will now be home to veterans, homeless individuals and Detroit residents with special needs.

Central City Integrated Health will provide on-site supportive services and assistance for apartment residents to not only maintain their housing status, but also to help them "positively contribute to the community."

The grand opening celebration will begin at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
