Paseo Verde: Childhood Wellness through Healthy, Affordable Housing

Major findings (from howhousingmatters.org/articles/paseo-verde-childhood-wellness-healthy-affordable-housing):

  • Green affordable housing can support children’s health by improving air quality, reducing exposure to toxins, and offering opportunities for physical activity.
  • An on-site health care center further supports underserved residents and extends health benefits to the broader community.
  • A for-profit and non-profit partnership allowed Paseo Verde to blend two experienced development teams to maximize Jonathan Rose Companies’ history of award-winning, environmentally-responsible TOD and APM’s understanding of the local market and the community’s needs and values.
  • Supporting residents’ health also extends to local recreational opportunities and using the principles of crime prevention through environmental design to support public safety in the surrounding area.
