On Tuesday, the Soto team joined partners from the NHP Foundation, Legacy Real Estate Development, Aetna CVS Health, Hamel Builders, and local artists at Paramount Baptist Church in southeast to celebrate the roof-raising of 17 Mississippi Ave. The celebration was not only for the building’s progress, but for the partnerships that made the project possible and the impact it will have on the local community. The four-story, 41-unit building will provide a mix of affordable, artist, and permanent supportive housing in Ward 8. Construction progress continues to be on-budget and ahead of schedule, set to deliver in early 2023!
The building has really taken shape over the past month, with most of the framing completed and roof trusses being installed this week. The exterior is being sheathed and prepared for cladding and windows in the coming weeks, while plumbing continues to be installed inside. The design team is thrilled with the progress, and is continuing to look for opportunities to incorporate local artists’ work into the building and site.
