Decatur’s pilot project will be built on a half acre between Sycamore Drive and Commerce Drive across from the Ice House apartments. Menne anticipates house costs at $250,000 to $300,000 each, the size roughly 12,000 square feet at one to 1½ stories. The site will hold five to seven homes sharing a common green space.
Menne said construction could begin early next year. The city will likely hold a lottery to determine who can purchase a cottage court home.
