New Hope Housing’s AVENUE J
New Hope Housing Avenue J broke ground in June 2020 on our NHH Avenue J development. It will offer affordable housing to people on modest incomes, including working families and those on a fixed income. Located in Houston’s vibrant, culturally-rich East End, Avenue J is New Hope’s 10th property. It will offer an affordable option in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood with escalating rental rates.
New Hope Housing Avenue J will offer 100 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes. Each will feature a full kitchen with granite countertops, quality cabinetry and a washer and dryer. Residents of this family-friendly property will enjoy the social room, the community dining room with its warming kitchen, a business center and covered parking. Rental rates will range from $350 to $780 for one bedroom, one bath, to $425 to $930 for two bedrooms, two baths.
This transit-oriented development will be close to job opportunities. Nearby amenities include a grocery store, pharmacy, library, public parks, schools and a hike & bike trail. The property will feature an upper-level terrace with seating areas and a panoramic view of downtown. Many of the living units will face the downtown skyline.
The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development, in partnership with the City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department, granted $12.5MM in CDBG-Disaster Relief funding to bolster this effort.
The property – designed by Kirksey Architecture and being constructed by Camden Builders – will be an energy-efficient, LEED certified development.
NHH Avenue J is scheduled to be completed in fall 2021.
