We are pleased to announce that the Veo project in Carson, California, has been selected as a finalist for this year’s Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award. The Award honors exemplary developments that meet affordable and workforce housing needs and help to create mixed-income communities of opportunity. Developments competing for the Kemp Award may be fully affordable, with all units designated for low-to-moderate income residents; or they may contain a mix of affordable units and market-rate units.
Veo serves as a mixed-income, mixed-use walkable community of for-sale townhomes sized specifically for families. Street-level retail has rejuvenated the area by enhancing the streetscape with outdoor dining and other improvements. The project is composed of 152 units of for-sale housing in four product types: stacked flats, two and three story townhouses, and single family homes. The project also includes 14,000 SF of ground floor retail fronting on the rejuvenated main street of Carson. The project was developed by CityView and Community Dynamics.
The winner of this year’s Kemp Award will be announced during the Terwilliger Center’s Housing Opportunity Conference, set for September 10-11 in New Orleans.
