Pillars at Oakmont to break ground by February

A look at the changing approach of Habitat for Humanity drops some info about the Pillars at Oakmont. Construction on the 15 townhomes at T and 33rd Streets is slated to begin early in 2009.

That development represents the organization’s first foray into building attached residential units.

“It’s a more traditional design appropriate for Church Hill,” Flynn said. “Richmond Habitat did all the right things in the design: The townhouses are up close against the street so they’re part of the neighborhood, and the garages are in back — the traditional way to build.”

Richmond Habitat will expand the income brackets to create more diverse, mixed-income communities. The change came from feedback it received at last year’s summit meeting.

[…] at the Pillars at Oakmont development, Richmond Habitat will offer:

  • nine townhomes for sale to families who make 30 percent to 60 percent of the area’s median income bracket, or $18,700 to $37,440 for a household of three;
  • three homes to families who make 61 percent to 80 percent of the area’s median income, or $37,440 to $49,900 for a household of three; and
  • three to be sold on the open market to workforce families in the 80 percent income bracket and above.
