In Pictures: More affordable housing is underway near downtown

Public Open

The six-story Public Open Apartments will have 112 one-bedroom apartments, 81 of which will be income restricted for people earning between 25 and 50 percent of the Area Median Income.

This project is just northwest of the massive Hardware District development which is at the high end of the market.  This project will help bring more income diversity to the area.

The project by Giv Development will be built in two phases.  A second somewhat larger phase is planned for sometime next year.

The project is two block walk from the North Temple Bridge/Guadalupe TRAX station with little in the way of services within half a mile radius.
