Chaffee has not named the new apartment complex, and it was unclear Tuesday when the units might be available for rent, but construction has begun on the three buildings at Main Street and the railroad crossing Jan. 13. Gill Family Properties, a development and property-management business based in Dexter, secured the building permits for $150,000 each in October. The $450,000 was the total cost it would take the company to build the apartments. The three buildings consist of 12 units — three town houses with four units in each — an employee from Gill Family Properties said. The units will have two bedrooms, 1,200 square feet and 1 1/2 baths. Major appliances and trash pickup will be included. City administrator Lee Horton welcomed the new housing to Chaffee and said it would be beneficial to the town. The Gill group has properties in Poplar Bluff, Dexter, Sikeston, Jackson and Chaffee in Missouri and Paducah, Kentucky. The Chaffee properties are at 101, 102 and 103 Burlington Lane. Horton said Gill Family Properties owns the lot and has room to expand.
