A major construction project called The Heights, on the east side of St. Paul, Minn., aims to bring affordable housing and economic opportunities to the local community. The 112-acre development, a collaboration between Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity and the St. Paul Port Authority, seeks to create 1,000 living-wage jobs, 1,000 attainable affordable housing units, and a sustainable, environmentally friendly site with platinum LEED Certification, CBS News reports. 

The development will include solar panels, electric vehicle charging stations, trails, and various housing options, including apartments, single-family homes, townhouses, and senior housing. The project is underway and is expected to continue over the next five years.

The land was was a golf course that was contaminated with mercury, but not anymore. In fact, this land will be exceptionally clean and green - with a rare platinum LEED Certification. Only 20 communities in the world will have this level of sustainability. They will have solar panels on all buildings. There will be EV charging stations, acres of trails and affordable places to rent and own.
