New Homes for the Near Northside
New homes are coming to the Near Northside!
The City of Houston and Houston Land Bank have recently acquired two new sites, which will be the location of development of communities of single-family homes. The “north site,” located at on three blocks at 3201 Hardy and 1406 Hays roads, currently is the site of Yellow Cab Company. The “south” site sits adjacent to the Burnett Transit Center. In total, these two sites represent 16.8 acres of land that can be transformed to enrich the Near Northside, through the creation of homes and community spaces that residents want to see.
These will be mixed-income developments, where over half of the homes will be dedicated to providing homes that are affordable to residents making at or less than 80% of Houston’s Area Median Income. In order to make best use of the space, we are looking to create higher density communities – from townhomes to duplexes to condos. But before development begins, it is crucial to get the input of community members, so we can make these homes fit into the vision that residents have for the Near Northside.

DEVELOPING HOMES & ASSISTING HOMEBUYERS
The program aims to create new homeownership opportunities for residents.
Focus on neighborhoods that are close to jobs, parks, and services – like the Near Northside.
Developments are mixed-income. Over half (at least 51%) of the new homes will be affordable to households earning 80% of the Area Median Income or less. For a family of three, for example, this would mean earning $57,050 or less as of 2021.
