ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Millions of dollars in renovations are coming to more than 170 homes at a Rockford housing authority property.

Back in May, RHA approved the 12 million dollar renovations at Orton Keyes, including new roofs and siding as well as new lighting floors and air conditioning inside each of the 175 units.

"That's what we hope for by attracting capital to this community, redeveloping Orton Keyes, that opens up the possibility for infrastructure improvements possibility for service groups to come here and feel comfortable and safe," says Gorman & Company Illinois Market President Andre Blakely.

Gorman and company expects renovations to all the units to be complete within the next two years. Families living at Orton Keyes will not be moved during the renovations.
