Best Affordable Project Under 30 du/ac

A formerly failed public housing project is now a 100% affordable townhouse project  with “defensible space” design techniques, such as front stoops and windows placed as “eyes on the street”, used to engage residents with their neighborhood while creating a sense of place and pride and helping avoid the patterns of isolation and decay of the former project.  Individual entries, varied roof forms and color contrasts provide a sense of individuality to each home. 

Included is a 10,000 sf. Life-Long Learning Center with community rooms, classrooms and recreation facilities, as well as a public park with sports fields.
