“Soon this development will be a vibrant community of beautiful townhomes that will fulfill the American dream of homeownership and the empowerment and security it provides for almost 60 of our neighbors. It will become this beloved community because of an incredible partnership between private funders, the City of Coral Springs, and Habitat, said Nancy Robin, CEO and Executive Director of Habitat Broward.

“The new neighbors and taxpayers who will call this development home will positively impact their neighborhood, reduce unemployment, and increase the local workforce.,” Robin said.
The 13-townhome development will be home to 60 people and will be approximately 1800 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 and a half bathrooms. GL Homes designed the beautiful, million-dollar design for the homes. Site work will start in November of this year and the project is scheduled to complete construction in late Summer of 2024.
The community is close to city centers, schools, churches, recreational and shopping amenities with easy access to transportation and major traffic corridors.
