SE 171st and Division Street
The development at Southeast 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.
The first 22 homes have been completed and several families have already moved in! The second phase of construction is currently underway and includes the final 23 homes and a community green space and garden. By the time this neighborhood is complete in the fall of 2014, it is estimated that over 10,000 volunteers will have worked side-by-side with 45 families to build this community from the ground up, providing stability for approximately 150 children.
