SE 171st and Division Street
The development at SE 171st and Division streets is the largest Habitat build in Oregon and part of Habitat’s four-year bank of land purchased through A World of Hope: It Starts at Home fundraising efforts.
This site includes 45 lots, adjacent to 20 homes built by a for-profit builder and sold at market rate. Because the first 20 homes were sold at market rate, this completed development will be a mixed-income community. Once complete, the entire community will benefit from the $6,750,000 added to the local property tax base.
For the first time in Habitat’s history, all specialty builds will be active during the same time and at the same location. The Portland Pride Build, Women Build, Faith Build and Youth United have all raised the necessary funds to sponsor a home.
Habitat is happy to report that as of September 2014, construction on all homes was completed and 45 local families are now homeowners! It is estimated that over 10,000 volunteers worked side-by-side with 45 families to build this community from the ground up, providing stability for approximately 150 children.
