Kudos to Jim and Patty White for their vision and dedication to bringing this project to life!
While 26% of folks in the US identify as having a disability, only 6% of the housing inventory is accessible to them. This project will help satisfy a critical need for some of our most vulnerable neighbors and friends.

Renderings sure make this project look handsome. As usual I did some math and it appears that total building is 6870sf, so at 8-10M total. The price/sf = $1164-$1455. Seems a tad bit high.
