In late 2018 and early 2019, Habitat crews began developing an empty lot the size of one city block at 43rd Avenue and Columbine Street. The project placed 16 duplexes—or 32 total homes—on the vacant property, with an alleyway separating homes on Columbine and Elizabeth streets, from 43rd to 44th avenues. The Habitat team also put in a stormwater system on Columbine Street from 43rd to 44th avenues to accomodate the homes.
Residents began moving into the homes in 2020. Major construction was completed in May 2021.
