REDDING, Calif. - The Redding City Council gave the green light for work to start up on an affordable housing and retail complex in downtown Redding.

The renderings from the McConnell Foundation and K2. This new development is called block seven and it's going to be housing mixed with retail. The construction is expected to total 300 million.

"We're getting to see a modern renaissance in downtown," President and CEO Redding Chamber of Commerce Jake Mangas said. "You know the railroad choosing Redding and not Shasta to Highway 99 choosing to come right through downtown and becoming market street. This is right up there with those moments in history and we are getting to witness it first hand."

The McConnell foundation will meet Monday to hear the public's concerns at Cedar Crest Brewing in Redding.
