Significance: Techwood Homes Building 2 is a contributing building in the Techwood Homes Historic District, nominated to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The building is significant for its role within the first federally funded public housing project in this country. In addition to its engineering and construction techniques, Building 2 is one of three buildings that compromise an entire building group (Group No. 101) of the original complex. As a unit, they illustrate the dynamic, integral configuration of built and open space that helped make Techwood Homes an experimental model for subsequent public housing projects.
