The state will retain ownership of the site, but the management of the housing will be overseen by Dominium. 

According to the release, the project is expected to cost $100 million and will be financed by a combination of low-income housing tax credits, federal and state historic tax credits, tax-exempt bonds and other resources.  Dominium expects to finalize financing by summer or early fall of 2019.
