New Habitat Homes in ONSL Look Great!December 6, 2010
This March, Habitat for Humanity started building 17 LEED-certified homes on Hebert St and Sullivan Ave in the Old North St. Louis neighborhood. I was very excited when I first saw the renderings and am even more happy now that I’ve seen them in real life.
I am particularly happy to see new flounder houses in the neighborhood. Several flounders help make up these new habitat homes. Just a block away from the flounder above is an old one in pretty bad condition.
The new homes built by Habitat for Humanity are wonderful additions to the neighborhood and their completion really adds to the momentum and excitement of the reopening of 14th street.
The red color of the new homes blends in fairly nicely with the brick that the rest of the neighborhood is built out of, and I even like the awnings. Thank you to Habitat for Humanity and everyone who helped out with this project. The final product looks great! For more photos of the new houses, see my small flickr set here.
