The 83-unit building at 26th and Walnut streets is to include one and two-bedroom low and moderate-income units.

Scott Fisher, assistant vice president of Northland Financial Co., said banks shy away from apartment projects because of multiple risks that include whether the project will be built on time and within cost, how long it take to rent the units, and who will pay back the bank. …
