To address a severe shortage of affordable homes, Sego Homes purchased a transit-oriented site two blocks from a light-rail station in Daybreak and designed an efficient townhome that is 12 feet wide. This yielded 57 homes on 1.88 acres yielding 30 du/ac. The four-story Manhattan Sky plan has 1,440 finished sf, 3 bedrooms, den/flex room, roof deck, sky room, and 2 1⁄2 bathrooms. An in-board switch-back staircase allows living areas to experience the full 12-foot width. Care was taken to open up sight lines in the home, especially to the outside. A home office space was designed at the entry to accommodate working from home. A roof deck provides private outdoor living space.
Priced at $315,900, Manhattan Sky was affordable to a buyer earning $55,500, which is 52 % of the area’s average median income of $107,620. Each sales release of the next building has sold out within 3 days.
