Lincoln Street Townhomes
WeBuild Concord announced several multi-family and single-family developments for the first two quarters of 2022. Our Lincoln Street Townhome Project will consist of twenty-six townhome units reserved for affordable ownership for households earning 60-80% of the area median income. We also have several single-family units under development for this population.
Why We Can’t Wait: WeBuild Concord and Housing
“The old guard in any society resents new methods, for old guards wear the decorations and medals won by waging battle in the accepted manner.”
Martin Luther King Jr., Why We Can’t Wait
Over the last 18 months, the evolution of WeBuild Concord as a nonprofit housing developer has created greater urgency for affordable housing, systems change, and a framework for Concord and Cabarrus County. WeBuild and its partners currently have fourteen (14) single-family, multi-family, NOAH (naturally occurring affordable housing), and mixed-use housing projects under construction or in the permit process comprising over sixty (60) homes. As a relatively new entity that takes more of a systemic approach to affordable and workforce housing, we encounter several questions about our practices, affordability, partnerships, and fears about change. The following outlines our processes, answers essential questions, and reminds people of the urgent need for broad approaches to housing.
Why is housing important to a family?
“Housing influences the social environment, access to economic and educational opportunities, and the overall mental and physical health of families and youth. As WeBuild Concord strives to develop equitable access to housing, we acknowledge our part in constructing a community that is inclusive and develops a diverse talent for our region.”
