Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco counties, in partnership with Exact-Shell Dash and the city of St. Petersburg, broke ground on a 10-unit townhome development, located on the 16th Street business corridor, bordering the Campbell Park neighborhood.
The new development will be marketed exclusively to potential homeowners making less than 80% of the area median income and willing to participate in the Habitat for Humanity program. The townhomes will be two-story, three-bedroom, three-bathroom units with a single-car garage.
Through the Habitat program, homebuyers will be provided an interest-free mortgage and with an investment by the city, each unit will have a maximum sales price capped at $219,000.
DuCon Construction will serve as the general contractor for the development and is a state-certified minority business enterprise. Construction is slated to be completed by the third quarter of 2024.
