Luces del Pacifico
944-Unit Workforce Housing Community in Panama


Los Luces Pacifico is a 944-unit workforce housing community that provides safe and affordable housing homes to low-income families earning one-to-three times the minimum wage in La Chorrera, Panama. Arranged in smaller gated communities of approximately 100 houses, each called “quintas,” the property will offer three different unit types ranging from available to families through a lease-purchase contract. Typically, individuals working in low-wage jobs in Central America cannot access the mortgage financing from local banks to purchase a basic house. Areas within the property will be reserved for future retail space, multi-family apartments, mixed-use towers, sports fields, recreational activity areas, and playgrounds that provide families with a safe environment in which to thrive.
