Housing Shouldn’t Just Be Affordable. It Should be Invaluable.

There’s more to where you live than the cost of rent. That’s why Fulbright Springs, a 36 home, new construction development was designed to minimize environmental impact while maximizing residential benefits.

Completed in 2010 Fulbright Springs offers 36 three bedroom, two bath 1,500 square foot affordable homes. With a location on North Farm Road 143, just off Norton Road, access to thousands of jobs is close by, and a newly extended bus route provides easy access. When Fulbright Springs Phase II is complete a partnership with the Community Partnership of the Ozarks will allow us to offer onsite GED classes, budgeting classes and parenting classes, with related childcare. Housed in the community clubhouse, the programs will be covered in our operating budget and will be offered to residents at no charge.

Fulbright Springs is EnergyStar Certified, featuring energy efficient design that benefits the environment and residents in equal measure. Low utility costs are one of the pragmatic benefits of our green building practices. Key organizations within the community are working together to ensure that our development goes beyond tangible buildings. With their help, we are confident Fulbright Springs has the potential to improve individual lives.

Single Family Homes With Whole Community Support.

Some people think you can identify low-income housing just by looking at it. Not so at Fulbright Springs. Guided by the belief that affordable housing should be held to the same standard as any other housing, we designed homes in which we would like to live.

A single-family residential development consisting of 35 homes (34 affordable and one market rate), Fulbright Springs Phase II features craftsman-style designs, built in accordance with energy efficient practices. The houses come in a variety of designs and range from 1,500 square feet to 2,076 feet.

Although Phase II is comprised of Single Family Homes, a community focus discourages isolation and provides support. With front porches large enough to enjoy with family and friends, the homes encourage neighborhood interaction and friendship. Phase II will also offers its residents (and the residents of Phase I) a newly constructed 1,692 square foot community building complete with a separate classroom, childcare room, and computer access for residents. Additionally, the community building was built with a basement constructed in accord with FEMA standards for a storm shelter. The storm shelter is sufficiently sized to accommodate the residents of Fulbright Springs Phases I and II.
