Buy A Home
ONE Neighborhood Builders builds and renovates housing units for purchase by income-qualified first-time homebuyers. Our homes are located in the Olneyville and Elmwood neighborhoods of Providence.
We are currently constructing three new single-family homes as part of our Audrey Street Initiative. To date, two have been completed and sold. The third, at 21 Audrey Street in Olneyville, will be completed late August and available for purchase by first-time low-income homebuyers. The sale price is $115,000. This home has 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and a two-car parking space. It has 1,400 sq ft of space and is designed for energy efficiency.
The houses are constructed using slightly modified versions of Kite Architect’s award-winning design submitted to the Providence Sustainable Housing contest in 2008. They have green features– both design elements and system choices– that increase operating efficiency and lower housing costs for their owners. Through an innovative win-win partnership, Building Futures serves as the general contractor for this development. Pre-apprentices enrolled in the building trades training program construct the homes, thereby giving participants practical experience while substantially reducing construction costs.
