The large, dilapidated structure at N.W. 29th and N. Lee, in the heart
of the Paseo, was only days away from demolition when it was rescued by
Amy Young and James Varnum. In 2010, the pair bought the property, an
eight-plex apartment in its former life, with the idea of turning it
into a center of community living. Hence, they became the brains behind
Project SixTwelve — a nonprofit named for the street address, 612 N.W.
