The Michigan Strategic Fund Board approved a $7 million loan to support a $19.5 million project that will bring housing and retail to the former YWCA site. The building will house 92 residences and four retail spaces, as a four-story building known as the Flint Market Place Apartments project. 

The projected completion date is projected to be completed by the fall of 2019. The idea behind the building is to get more affordable housing, to get more people living downtown.

Apartments will include one and two-bedroom units, where the townhomes will have individual entrances and have two and three bedrooms. 

After maintenance became too time-consuming the WCA moved to the nearby Phoenix Building on Saginaw Street in 2016.
