Spring 2029

The Carey Blvd. site will consist of a clustered arrangement of 53 townhomes with 2, 3, or 4 bedrooms, and all will be offered as permanently affordable homeownership homes, with priority to families on the N/NE Preference Policy waitlist. Each townhouse will include a private rear yard, and the community is served by five common areas that will be developed with playgrounds, community gardens, picnic or gathering areas. The site has 3 convenient access points to the Peninsula Crossing Trail. The project will complement the neighborhood and create a sense of community by offering a mix of townhome styles and a few detached homes that blend with the surrounding area, while honoring the natural beauty of the land by incorporating the Heritage tree and other green spaces into the design. A multitude of energy efficiency features are included in the design of the homes to achieve Earth Advantages Net-Zero Energy Ready design standard.

Habitat for Humanity will partner with Proud Ground and First Republic Bank to provide secure and affordable home ownership for low-income households. This partnership consists of First Republic Bank offering affordable 30-year fixed rate loans and Proud Ground providing permanent affordability and lower purchase prices through the community land trust model. Funding sources for the Carey Blvd. project include Metro Bond funding, Interstate Corridor Tax Increment Financing and other public and philanthropic funds. The site is currently in use as a Safe Rest Village for up to three years - construction for this project is likely to begin in 2026.
