AAHC is well on its way to surpassing the “4040 by 2020” goal the organization set to increase its portfolio of affordable housing units from the current 2,740 to at least 4,040 in the next four years to meet Austin’s critical need and dwindling supply.
AAHC recently purchased 6.3 acres of undeveloped land in the thinkEAST Creative District to construct more than 180 units of affordable housing just north of Airport Road off Shady Lane in Austin. A public-private partnership comprised of AAHC, national affordable housing developer Atlantic Pacific Management, and local affordable housing developer Madhouse Development plans to construct nearly 200 affordable apartment units in central east Austin. One-hundred percent of the units will be affordable to families earning 60 percent of Austin’s median family income. In addition, construction is under way at several properties including the Reserve at Springdale, Harris Branch Senior, and Urban Oaks.
AAHC acquired its single-family house rental inventory between 2001-2012. In keeping with its mission, AAHC rents these houses at an affordable, below-market rent amount. Housing Choice Vouchers are accepted. These houses are spread throughout the city of Austin.
AAHC acquired multiple office buildings beginning in the year of its inception, 2003 through 2009. In keeping with its mission of affordability, AAHC rents the majority of its office space to local nonprofit partners.
