ORLANDO — A team of architects at Rhodes+Brito designed three of the six homes for veterans and their families at Heroes’ Commons at Jefferson Park, a collaborative housing development project by the Orlando Regional Realtor Foundation’s Art in Architecture Program and the City of Orlando.
Maximiano Brito, AIA, co-founder and partner at Rhodes+Brito Architects said he and other firm members on the project Carl Shea, AIA and Loi Van Loon-Flink donated their services, valued at more than $146,640 for the three homes that range from 1,384 to 1,534 square feet of living area.
Heroes’ Commons at Jefferson Park, located in Parramore community west of downtown Orlando, is a project that was designed to maximize connectivity between the homes in the neighborhood and provide a supportive and inclusive environment.
The new homeowners, with a legacy of service, will continue to serve by working with their fellow veteran neighbors and community leaders as advocates for the Parramore neighborhood.
Thanks to the City of Orlando and the Art in Architecture Program’s collaborative efforts, funding partners and professionals who donated services, deserving veterans are moving into brand new mortgage-free homes providing a step toward financial independence and security.
“Helping both the Parramore community and veterans who served and sacrificed so much for our nation is really close to all our hearts and we were delighted to give back in such a meaningful way,” said Brito.
