Wadajir Residences and souq
creating change - together
Abu Bakr reached out to Forterra for assistance in buying the property and realizing their vision for attainable housing and a marketplace for local businesses. Drawing from the Strong Communities Fund I for social impact investors, Forterra purchased the site and is now working towards a community-driven plan that includes a 15,000 sf Souq and international marketplace, up to100 new cooperatively owned homes – with 80 larger two- and three-bedroom homes for families.
- Cooperative Housing – residents own shares in the building and land as members of a limited equity, cooperative non-profit corporation. Learn more about cooperative housing.
- Sustainable — Wadajir will be built out of a sustainable product called Cross Laminated Timber.
- Community Driven Development — a community marketplace on the ground floor with a small restaurant and up to 65 market stalls for small local businesses will be available.
