Located at 504 McCabe Avenue in the Greater Govans community, the single-family home will include three-bedrooms, two bathrooms, and is on track to be completed in the Spring of 2021. The project launch represents Habitat Chesapeake’s dedication to the neighborhood, which began in 2012 with its commitment to renovating a projected 21 homes by 2020.
