New Hope Housing’s AVENUE J
New Hope Housing Avenue J will offer affordable housing to people with 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. Avenue J will break ground in summer 2020.
This transit-oriented development will be close to job opportunities. Nearby amenities include a grocery store, pharmacy, library, public parks and schools. The property will feature an upper-level terrace with play equipment, seating areas and a panoramic view of downtown. Many of the living units will face the downtown skyline. Avenue J is designed to be an energy-efficient, sustainable development.
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 $700 to $1,000.
The City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department recently approved a grant of $12.5M in CDBG-Disaster Relief funding to bolster this effort.
