SOUTHWOOD ESTATES PHASE II
27 Affordable Homes
2019 Charles L. Edison Tax Credit Excellence Award Winner in the Rural Housing Category
Southwood Estates Phase II, developed by Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation and syndicated by RBC Capital Markets, provides 27 units of affordable rental housing on the Prairie Band Potawatomi Reservation in Mayetta, Kansas. Travois served as the consultant and architect. To address the chronic shortage of housing, particularly affordable housing designed for multigenerational households, the development consists of three- to five-bedroom single-family homes that integrate with the existing neighborhoods’ character and better meet the needs of large, multigenerational families. Over 50 percent of the homes are reserved for those recovering from alcohol or drug abuse or physical abuse, and over 20 percent are reserved for military veterans, including widows or widowers.
