Construction Racing Along At Second Street
On Dec. 6th we got to visit First Community Housing's newest development that Housing Trust provided predevelopment funding towards and watched the fascinating, Lego brick-like construction of the 134 home project.
Proset, the company which makes the housing modules, says they are more durable than ordinary construction since each has to withstand hundreds of
vel by truck to get to the site. 35 homes are designated for those with developmental
disabilities and there will be 6,000 square feet of retail
on to so
me on-site services.
We took a follow-up picture last night - not even two weeks from the Dec. 6 visit - showing all of the units in place and showing a real "Wow!" factor in terms of how fast construction can move with this type of design.
The opening of the building, which is the first permanent supportive housing development in San Jose, is scheduled to take place in October of 2018 - which means that a year from now some of our currently homeless neighbors will be living in
a place to call home.
