Westgate New Affordable Homes
Westgate’s New Affordable Homes:
The initial planning for this project began in 2007 when the Westgate/Belvedere CRA and Neighborhood Renaissance partnered to apply for Disaster Recovery Initiative funds through Palm Beach County’s allocation from the State of Florida. We applied for funding to build new homes to replace those destroyed or severely damaged by Hurricane Wilma. Our agencies were jointly awarded a $2,058,641 construction grant to make these homes affordable for low-income working families. Florida Community Loan Fund is providing an $850,000 revolving loan for the land acquisition.
The development will include a combination of 4BR/2.5BA and 3BR/2BA single-family homes, plus 2 duplexes with each having a 3BR/2BA and a 2BR/2BA side. All home models include the following:
• Solid block construction
• Spacious master suite
• Fully landscaped yard
• Energy Star appliances
• Quality wood cabinetry
• 1 Year Home Warranty
Prices for these homes are starting at $80,000. Upon completion each house will meet the standards of the
Florida Green Building Coalition for an energy efficient and environmentally conscious home. Click Affordable Homes for information about each model or call Lashea Brooks, Housing Manager at (561) 832-6776, ext. 103 or provide us your contact information.
