Now that Phase 1 of the East Parmenter neighborhood is completed, Habitat for Humanity has broke ground on phase 2! This is an exciting project that will transform an entire street very close to Washington’s Headquarters and Liberty Street. See below to what the job site looked like before the foundation was laid.
If Habitat is able to move as swiftly with phase 2 as they did with phase 1, we will see these homes completed within a years time. Families have already moved in to the new homes built from phase 1 across the street. And, neighbors are seeing an improvement in the quality of life on the block. Volunteers even had a hand in rebuilding a porch of a neighboring house. The bug is catching on. Hopefully other home owners on E. Parmenter will look into the façade grant and loan being offered and continue with the progress.
