HUNTINGTON, WV (AP) — An aging public housing complex in Huntington will be demolished to make way for commercial development.

Razing the Northcott Court complex is part of a plan to redevelop the city's Fairfield West neighborhood.

The plan also includes construction of two senior townhouse building and single-family homes in the neighborhood.

Media outlets report that City Council approved the plan Monday.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development also must approve demolishing the 129-unit housing complex. Northcott Court was built in the 1940s.
