[DAO: QmVZwLs] Affordable Housing (Apartments and Townhomes)

by 0xe7e477ef1676a46ae6621983834a6e0b29c06979

Should the following Tier 4: up to $60,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Content Creator category be approved?


We are a small group of technical artists and coders who have recently fallen in love with the decentraland metaverse. Our plan in short is to purchase 2 ESTATEs and on them we will build a series of apartment buildings and townhomes. Apartments consisting of 1 and 2 bedroom floor plans, while townhomes consist of 2-4 bedroom floor plans. Rent in apartments will not exceed $450.00USD in MANA per month with 1 bed units starting at $225.00USD in MANA per month. Townhome rent will not exceed $950.00USD in MANA per month. We believe this project will provide the community with easily attainable housing that comes furnished as a place or places that can be used as a home or a hub for any metaverse business users may wish to begin creating.

Hello all! And thank you for taking the time to look over our project. We believe if we receive funding for our project we’d be solving a few issues that new and existing users share. To begin, building affordable housing within decentraland would make it so the community members who don’t have a large budget will have a place of their own. In these spaces users will be able to mingle with friends, host private parties, watch live streaming content on provided televisions as all apartments and townhomes will come fully furnished with the option of adding new items in the future. Everyone would love to have a piece of the metaverse to call their very own, but we all don’t have an extra 14-15k for one parcel of land. I feel as though this would provide new and existing users an entirely new experience bringing a whole new element to the decentraland metaverse. Construction of this property will also create several new job positions within decntraland paying no less than $1300.00USD monthly guaranteed. These will include positions such as property managers & leasing agents. Any issues found in the apartments will be reported to the property manager who will report back to us and any issue should be hashed out within 24 hours. Everyone deserves their own corner of the metaverse and that’s what we are trying to achieve for everyone. Thank you for taking the time to consider my proposal.


Once funding is received we would immediately go purchase the ESTATES required for building to begin. Once the land is in our possession construction will begin immediately using a mix of the decentraland builder and the SDK to ensure each user experience will be truly unique. Every member of our team has a graphical design background or a hardcore coding background so estimated build time will be 4-6 weeks after funding.

Roadmap and milestones

Once funded building will be complete wihtin 4-6 weeks all info will be shared via reddit in the r/decentralandgame subreddit where we will be releasing the link to our new discord channel as well.
