Make It Right is adding six single-family home designs to complement the organization’s existing affordable housing and community complex in Kansas City, Mo., called Manheim Park.
According to ArchDaily, local architects designing the new homes are working to expand Make It Right’s efforts in Kansas City while also maintaining sustainability and following LEED Platinum standards.
In a press release, Make It Right stated:
In 2013, we opened an affordable housing and community complex for young people transitioning out of foster care, seniors, and families in need in Kansas City’s Manheim Park, an underserved urban neighborhood.
This year we are continuing our work in Manheim Park by building single-family homes on vacant lots directly across from the Bancroft Apartments.
Block by block, we believe that Manheim Park can become the most vibrant, desirable neighborhood in Kansas City, says Tim Duggan, Make It Right Innovations Director and Kansas City native.
There were six firms involved in designing the homes:
- El Dorado Inc.
- Hufft Projects
- KEM Studio
- Pendulum Studio
