As a part of the Air Mobility Command East (AMC East), MacDill AFB was the company's first endeavor under the Air Force's Housing Privatization program. The community hosts a total of 527 homes, including 327 new single-family and duplex homes for officers and enlisted families in Tampa, Florida. Designed to increase camaraderie and foster interaction between neighbors, MacDill features upgraded neighborhood amenities such as a new 6,000 square feet welcome center, a pool, and other community amenities. Additionally, the plan included provisions for providing uninterrupted access to the nearby elementary school.
The project team at MacDill recycled roof tiles, CMU block, and 37,000 tons of concrete and asphalt to use for road base and stem wall in-fill. In addition, the project team donated amenities from former homes, such as refrigerators, stoves, vanities, and cabinets, to Habitat for Humanity. The team also saved over 130 trees, including 77 30- to 50-year-old oak trees on site. For new vegetation, the team selected native species for drought hardiness and to reduce the amount of watering required. Additional sustainable features include: recycled mulch, a Florida Water Star compliant irrigation system, low flow toilets, low voltage wiring systems, gutters and downspouts made from recycled aluminum, and Green Label Plus carpets and carpet pads.
