The Houston Housing Authority has broken ground on its first new affordable housing project in a decade. The city’s affordable housing agency is under construction on Independence Heights Apartments, a mixed-income community on the southeast corner of Crosstimbers and North Main Street in the Independence Heights neighborhood. The garden-style apartments, 302 Crosstimbers St., will offer 154 subsidized units. The Clerkley Watkins Group, a Houston-based architect, designed the apartments, which will feature solid wood cabinets, granite countertops, handicap accessible or adaptable accommodations and a community room for social gatherings and meetings. Units in Independence Heights Apartments are designated for eligible low-income renters earning at most $41,500 a year and supported by a public housing voucher.
