The latest push for more affordable housing in Eau Claire officially broke ground Thursday.
The Cannery Trail Residences will be built along Oxford Ave., just west of downtown Eau Claire.
The project will be done in two phases.
The first, which kicked off Thursday, will be made up of 71 units of market rate housing.
This will be followed by 40 to 45 units of mixed-income housing.
In July, the Eau Claire City Council approved an agreement with W Capital Group to construct the new apartments.
