Fort Lincoln Housing in the Northwest #1 Urban Renewal Area

  • Preliminary studies began in October, 1966

  • Was scheduled to go out for bid in Spring 1969

  • Was expected to take 18 months to construct

Extensions of the housing arch over the green street, giving it shade and animation. The streets are juxtaposed to private courts and terraces for each house, made possible by the flexibility of the ‘Twentieth Century Brick.’ Such schemes would be economically unfeasible with any other building techniques known in the United States.
