South Meadows Property Closes in Preparation for Construction of Affordable Homes and Public Park
“Los Prados” community will bring approximately 161 new affordable homes and an active park to South Meadows
Santa Fe, NM – Today, Homewise announced the closure of the South Meadows property for public use to prepare for construction of Los Prados, a new community of affordable homes and an active park. Earlier this year, on April 29, Homewise closed on the purchase of 22 acres of land at South Meadows with the intention to build Los Prados.
At Los Prados, Homewise will build approximately 161 new homes, all of which will be affordable to Santa Fe’s workforce. Half of the new homes will meet the City’s affordability standard, which is two and half times what the city requires.
Homewise will also develop a six acre active, family-friendly park that may include play equipment, ball fields, picnic areas, and walking paths. Homewise has retained the services of a professional park design firm which will solicit community input on the park design and develop a master plan for the park. Those interested in participating in the design process should contact Isaac Hammond-Paul at email@example.com.
While construction is underway, Homewise must close the South Meadows property to public use, both to reduce the risk of anyone being injured and to satisfy liability insurance requirements. Homewise will keep the community informed of progress on the park and look forward to when this amenity can be enjoyed by the surrounding neighborhoods and all Santa Feans.
