We are excited to be in the final stretch of Phase 1 of the construction of this affordable housing Build-to-Rent community located in a designated Opportunity Zone community! This project was a Turn-Key Design & Build project with our construction partner and sister company Houston Vintage Homes!
Our Design/Build firm was hired to source the site, replat, design & construct this development located in Houston’s 5th Ward neighborhood! This rapidly gentrifying area is seeing major displacement of the existing families as the only new product being built in the area is market rate townhomes that are selling in the low $300k range.
The average renter in this area is paying between $600-$800 a month and buying a home with a $2200 mortgage is simply impossible for these families!
So we were tasked with the mission of designing something that was affordable to build and to rent which proved to be quite the challenge with the escalating prices of materials!
This design features 3 bedrooms 2 baths and a 1 car garage with a modern feel and doesn’t fit the norm for what most affordable housing looks like! Our mission was to design a home that was affordable but rivaled the market rate housing being built in the area.
Professional photos will be done in another week and we will update the site with more photos soon! Give us a call or shoot an email to Designer@UrbanVintageDesigns.com if you have any questions about the design of your affordable housing project!
