Green Country Habitat for Humanity broke ground Thursday on a long-awaited multifamily project on the former site of Whittier Elementary.

The Whittier is a development consisting of 23 townhomes. It’s adjacent to a rental community for seniors that’s currently under construction. The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation is a major supporter of Green Country Habitat for Humanity. Foundation Executive Director Bill Major said the Whittier will help with Tulsa’s shortage of affordable housing.
