New Low-Income Housing Announced in the Corpus Christi Area
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
A non-profit announced Thursday plans to build more low-income housing units in Corpus Christi.
An open house was held at the Laguna Apartments in Flour Bluff, the corporate headquarters for Advanced Housing Alternatives. The announcement was made about two more properties that are being developed with no City or federal monies, but rather just private donations from local companies and ordinary citizens.
One property, the Oak Park 2, will be developed near Erwin and Mueller and will consist of nine small homes. The other property will be developed into housing near Crosstown, bordered by Greenwood, Holly and Saratoga.
Council Member Rudy Garza was on hand to applaud the corporation's efforts and point out the housing need.
Corporation leaders say they hope to continue to gather enough donations to build more affordable housing. They plan to begin construction on Oak Park 2 in 30-90 days.
