Workers have been busy framing the structures that will make up the Encanto Apartments, a 180-unit complex being built on Encanto Drive just south of McCall Blvd.
The project, approved by Riverside County in 2006, was finally begun a few months ago. According to the developer, Frost Communities, the complex will include a multi-purpose sport court; pool, wading pool and spa; barbecue area; movie theater; clubhouse; tot lot; gym; and business center.
According to Carmen Cave, community development director for the City of Menifee, the builder will charge $650 to $800 per month for the one- and two-bedroom units that are designated as affordable housing, which is estimated to be about 20 percent of the units. Rent on the remaining 80 percent of the units will range from $1,000 to $1,400 per month for one- to three-bedroom apartments.
No completion date has been announced.
