Habitat Sarasota leverages our resources with community partners, collaborations and volunteers to keep our homes affordable. Habitat Sarasota is building Hammock Place, a 40-home neighborhood that is the first of its kind in this area.   Habitat Sarasota began developing Hammock Place in response to the growing need for affordable housing in our community. Currently, Hammock Place is the only option in Sarasota for families who are earning 60-80% of area median income and who need a 3 or 4 bedroom single-family home.   The homes in Hammock Place are 1,500 sq under air and feature 3 bedrooms; 2 bathrooms; an attached 2-car garage; all major appliances; window blinds; and lawn maintenance. Built with insulated concrete form (ICF) construction, the homes are Category 5 storm rated and energy efficient. All the homes in Hammock Place exceed green building standards.
