Delray Beach will be increasing its portfolio of workforce housing thanks to the Corey Isle project.
Ten single-family workforce homes will soon be built in the Southwest Neighborhood at the Northwest corner of Southwest Seventh Avenue and Southwest Fourth Street.
The homes will be either three or four bedrooms with two bathrooms and rear-loaded garages and will be between 1,800 to 2,300 square feet.
Construction officially broke ground last month with a ground breaking ceremony. The project is being constructed thanks to a partnership between the Delray Community Redevelopment Agency, which owns the land, and the Delray Beach Community Land Trust, which responded to a proposal from the agency to develop the 10 homes.
The land trust’s mission is to create healthy communities through the provision and preservation of affordable housing for low to moderate-income households. The land trust will pre-qualify the potential buyers, who will have to meet the requirements for workforce housing.
