7555 Mission Street is expected to draw the sweat equity of some 200,000 volunteers by the time construction finishes this year.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
Climb Real Estate Group volunteered with Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco to help revitalize local neighborhoods. A team from San Francisco's residential brokerage spent the day helping construct 36 affordable homes in Habitat for Humanity's latest housing development in Daly City. Built on a raised podium garage structure, the new construction development will be Habitat Greater San Francisco's largest affordable housing development in the Bay Area to date. The new, affordable housing development in Daly City is also a part of the Grand Boulevard Initiative -- which is a regional plan to create housing and job growth on the El Camino Real corridor along the Peninsula.
“Our time is the greatest donation in making an important difference toward addressing housing challenges in our community,” said Alisa Albrecht, a Sales Associate with Climb Real Estate Group. "Having spent the day with my colleagues in moving Habitat's initiative forward was extremely rewarding.”
In building the three-story condominium development, 7555 Mission Street is expected to draw the sweat equity of some 200,000 volunteers by the time construction finishes this year. Vi Pavlicevich, who helped organize Climb's participation in the day-long event says, "As a life-long Bay Area resident, I was thrilled to oversee having my company be involved in such an important development that provides so many things to the hard-working families that will live here."
Habitat for Humanity says the project will benefit the region by spending millions on building supplies and services, as well as the opportunity for more local, working families to purchase affordable homes. "My wife and I have supported Habitat for over ten years because we believe in Habitat's ownership model. They teach potential homeowners not only about home ownership but community participation and development. In an industry where we tend to have a silo mentality, it was rewarding working side-by-side with team mates for a great cause," said Eugene Pak who is a long time member and sponsor was instrumental in coordinating Climb's volunteer day with the Habitat team. Aside from a mortgage, each family must also contribute 500 sweat equity hours to help build their homes.
