Update: Affordable Homes in Point Breeze, Now With Renderings Monday, February 20
At the time, a large hole was all that indicated the future development.
Developer NorthStar Point Breeze is behind the development, which is being subsidized by NSP2 funds. The project includes three homes at the corner of 20th and Dickinson Sts., two homes on the block immediately to the north of that corner, and another on the 1700 block of S 18th St.
Construction, which began in December, is moving along quickly at the three corner properties. Here are a couple of up-to-date images of the 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom, Energy Star certified homes.
For an idea of what they'll look like when complete, here's a rendering from architects JKR Partners.
The prices for the homes at 20th and Dickinson Sts. have gone up since December, and will be listed at $179,500 for the corner property, and $172,500 for the other two. The homes will be available to people earning up to 120% of the Area Median Income, and construction on the project should be completed by July.
And to remind you once again, the development costs for this project are about $2.4M.
Let's build a few dozen more, shall we?
