Four workforce housing projects have been developed from concept to completion. All involved complex land negotiations, layers of funding sources, thoughtful designs that fit into the fabric of their respective neighborhoods, and careful maneuvering through the local entitlement process.
Wilson Park is a mixed income neighborhood made up of 25 single family homes adjacent to the Old Wilson Schoolhouse. The entire community of Wilson helped inform the design and furthered the public / private partnership.
Located in sought after east Jackson, 5-2-5 Hall is a 12 unit town home development serving low income households and included a unique partnership with Habitat for Humanity and a progressive program to provide home ownership choices for the developmentally disabled.
The third project, The Grove, is the largest affordable housing development in Teton County which takes advantage of the Planned Mix Use Development tool to incorporate a mix of uses and three stories to construct 68 affordable rental and ownership opportunities. The urban style design allows for higher densities while maintaining inviting and livable spaces that suit young working families.
Finally, the Bridger View Neighborhood in Bozeman, MT, offers 62 modest homes (half market rate, half below market) in a walkable, well-designed neighborhood north of downtown. The project required skillful navigation of complex partnerships, design & entitlement processes, construction management, and marketing, as well as the establishment of a new entity (Headwaters Community Housing Trust) to oversee the long-term affordability of the below-market units.
