The Globe Avenue development has been many years in the making. The property was donated by the city of Culver City to Habitat LA specifically for building affordable housing and the future homeowners all currently live and/or work in Culver City. The site, which includes six single-family homes and two duplexes, is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019. Friday, March 8 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Lowe’s has supported Habitat’s Women Build program in the U.S. since 2008. This year, recognizing the global need for affordable housing, Lowe’s is expanding its support to help build homes in Montreal, Canada and Bangalore, India. In the U.S., home builds and repairs will take place in cities including Nashville, Orlando, Seattle, North Carolina and Lowe’s hometown, Charlotte.
