About the Development

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity is honored to partner with City of Lakes Community Land Trust to develop 17 townhomes in the Harrison neighborhood of Minneapolis.

Construction is moving quickly on Twin Cities Habitat's 3-building Harrison Townhomes project. A majority of the construction is being performed by our construction management partner, Watson-Forsberg. We will finish the interiors of the units using our volunteer labor model.

Harrison Townhomes is close to Theodore Wirth Parkway, Bryn Mawr Meadows Park, local shopping on Glenwood Ave., and is just minutes from downtown Minneapolis.

The development will include:

  • seven 2-bedroom units 
  • nine 3-bedroom units 
  • one 4-bedroom unit featuring an accessible first floor with two bedrooms and a two-car garage
