One of our passions at 3DAS is delivering high-quality visualizations to the affordable housing community. Below you will see some of our most notable renderings from Majestic Place, Kaicasa, and Whitaker Woods.
Lack of Affordable Housing in Collier County
Finding affordable housing in Southwest Florida can be difficult for those trying to make ends meet. According to the Urban Land Institute, it’s especially hard in Collier County, where the average monthly rental costs about $1,500. Even more sobering, 61.4% of jobs in Collier pay less than $33,250 per year, while the average monthly rental cost hovers over $1,500 a month, and the average home price is more than $341,000. WINK News reporter Amanda Porter spoke to workers in Naples who say it’s challenging to get by and trying to buy a home or rent will break the bank.
Habitat for Humanity’s largest subdivision yet will bring affordable homes to an area where they are desperately needed. 3DAS affordable housing visualizations included 3-Plex & 4-Plex exterior renderings along with their 1st and 2nd-story 3D floor plans. Kaicasa will deliver an estimated 280 homes when complete within the migrant worker city of Immokalee, Florida.
3DAS was commissioned to create a 3D elevation rendering along with the second story floor plan. Taken from a 3D Revit model from MHK architecture (located in southwest Florida), our additional elements include lighting, texturing, vegetation, 3D people and interior furniture.
This Habitat for Humanity Naples community is a two-story 8-Plex townhome utilizing New England style architecture.
3DAS was commissioned to create the 3D elevation renderings, 1st and 2nd story floor plans. Multiple roof and color schemes were used prior to the buildout of the affordable housing community.
This Habitat for Humanity Naples community is comprised of 125 homes on roughly 7 acres of preserve and a 3 acre lake. The two-story 3-Plex and 4-Plex townhome designs utilize New England style architecture. Affordable, no-interest mortgages with three and four-bedroom, two-bath homes.
In less than 3 Collier County board meetings, Majestic Place (formerly Regal II) was approved. They did this by educating value and importance of a Habitat for Humanity community to nearby communities using 3D renderings. Additional consultation work included UI/UX web site visuals, redeveloping the vegetation and site map, and drone photography.
The 3D visuals used to expedite the permitting process included aerial renderings (with distance measurements), neighborhood and individual exterior renderings at pedestrian height.
