Mason City housing development wins state housing award

The River - Talon residential project

The River apartment and condominium complex, located on the south loop of Highway 65 in Mason City.

The 133-unit facilities opened in January and were pitched, in part, as addressing housing needs issues in the community.

Less than a year after opening, The River housing complex in downtown Mason City has a reason to celebrate. 

On Wednesday, the 133-unit apartment and townhome community along the south loop of Highway 65 received an award at the Iowa Finance Authority's Housing Iowa Conference in Cedar Rapids

Mason City Administrator Aaron Burnett shared the news via email that The River, from Talon Development out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, won for "best multi family project in the state."

In July, Mason City Council Members voted 6-0 to provide grant support to Talon as it puts in for a "Workforce Housing Credit" benefit from the state that would assist in developing a second, 102-unit development that would be known as "The River II."

At that time, Burnett said that Talon was looking to get into the ground in 2022.
