ABOUT US

South Florida Community Land Trust (SFCLT) is a non-profit corporation that protects land to keep housing affordable forever. With a mission “to provide and preserve quality, sustainable, affordable housing for underserved populations in South Florida,” we are committed to ensuring that individuals and families – particularly low-income households – can afford housing without compromising on quality or location. For more information, please visit www.southfloridaclt.org.

VISION

SFCLT’s vision for this project is to meet the highest standards of sustainable, affordable, cost-effective development. Home designs should address the livability and adaptability of the units, their energy efficiency, the way they weave together the neighborhood, and how the homes enhance quality of life, social cohesion, and long-term viability of the community.

PROJECT DETAILS

SFCLT will develop 14 units of workforce housing for homeownership. Additional considerations include:

  • Two and three-Story townhomes with ground floor parking/carport/garage;
  • A mix of bedrooms and square footage;
  • Consideration of modular, pre-fabrication, and/or panelized systems;
  • Incorporation of green features including energy efficiency and sustainable materials;
  • Designed at $150/SF maximum (construction hard costs); and
  • Provision of schematic designs (20% AE) by end of June 2018.
