The Community Housing Land Trust’s first project, The Dorms on Sage Street is proceeding rapidly.
Delivery of the first load of modules is scheduled for the week of August 27th. It will entail nine trucks and six trips from Wyoming – 54 truckloads in all to deliver all the prefab buildings for the complex.
By the time the trucks roll up to the property on Sage Street, the grading will be completed, utilities stubbed, foundations set and awaiting the first building, and the sound wall constructed along the perimeter by the railroad.
I’m most pleased to share some conceptual drawings and plans for the project. I am very proud of our community. The City of Reno and more than a dozen Construction and Engineering companies, generous donors and regulatory agencies, have come together to give their time and money, to provide affordable housing for more than 200 of our low-income residents. This housing project will likely be renamed “Sage Street Village” or something similar.
I took these photos in April when we inspected the module buildings on site in Wyoming.
In addition to spacious offices, community lounges, dining room and a commercial kitchen the dorms will arrive with a gym and equipment.
Each private dorm room has a large window, closet, and comes furnished with a desk, chair, and flat screen TV installed on the wall.
Everyone involved wants this to be a beautiful place to live and an enhancement to the community that we can point to with pride. If you can help, or know of someone we should meet with who may help, let me know.
Would you like to join me onsite at an event when the trucks arrive next month? Please email me at email@example.com and we will send you an invitation.
