Heritage Senior Residences Center St. & Moy St.

Recommended Posts

Recent Planning Commission Agenda (May 14th) was pretty bare, but I did find this. Don't know if we have a thread for this yet.


Senior Living Apartments

4 floors on top of ground level parking

Architect: Mucasey & Associates


Not sure how many residences.


Kind of your typical infill wrap project from Mucasey & Associates. Nothing really new or interesting here.

I ride on Center almost exclusively vs busy Washington and have passed this empty lot for years. Always wondered what it would be, townhomes or a small apartment complex.

I think there is a topic for this lot from years ago.

I circled the block and saw a couple of new surveyor stakes on the north side. I talked with a neighbor and asked him if he had received any info on the build but he said he hadn't. Sometimes builders send info on their projects to neighbors to let them know what is going on. I talked with a guy at the Pearl Rosemont and he mentioned they had all gotten multiple letters about that project.

Rice Military-area senior housing project gets backing of city's Harvey grant program



By Emma Whalen | 6:19 PM Apr 7, 2021 CDT | Updated 6:20 PM Apr 7, 2021 CDT

A new 135-unit affordable senior living complex near Washington Avenue will receive a piece of the city's Harvey recovery funds targeting multifamily development.

The Houston City Council approved on April 7 an allocation of $14 million for the project, which is also receiving funding from Texas’ 9% low income housing tax credit, among other sources, to cover the $40 million construction.

The complex is the first to receive a low-income housing tax credit in the Washington Avenue and Rice Military area in 30 years, city documents state. It is part of a broader strategy local officials are leading to disperse affordable housing more evenly throughout the city.

The development, known as the Heritage Senior Residences, will offer 135 one- and two-bedroom units and serve seniors over the age of 55 making between 30% to 80% of the area median income. It will be located at the northeast corner of Center Street and Moy Street, city documents state.

According to the development's website, it is slated to break ground this month and open for residents in the fall of 2022.
In 2019, the Houston Housing and Community Development Department began using a new scoring matrix to determine which affordable housing proposals would go before council for consideration. The new scoring matrix ensures even distribution of affordable housing proposals throughout the city. Selected developments then go before state officials to potentially gain approval for a state affordable housing tax credit.

The scoring matrix, which is used annually to evaluate state affordable housing tax credit applications, was developed in response to a federal civil rights inquiry alleging that Houston’s previous affordable housing strategy resulted in concentrations of poverty.
