The southern-most ~12 acres of land on Milwaukee St frontage will be reserved for sustainable development. We believe in minimizing environmental impact by following the principles of the Living Building Challenge, which uses development as a tool to improve surrounding ecosystems. The primary development goal will be affordable housing, with the following emphasis areas:
- Affordable homeownership opportunities to build generational wealth, especially for People of Color.
- Housing cooperatives and co-housing
- Small and B-Corp businesses
- Community centers
The image below shows approximate dwelling units per acre (DU/ac) that may be constructed in two scenarios: the original, less dense city plan, which would cover 24.4 acres and a more dense plan that would consume 11.6 acres yet still provide an equivalent number of units.
