HOUSTON – The Houston Housing Authority, Mayor Sylvester Turner, HUD Deputy Regional Administrator Leslie Bradley and community stakeholders celebrated the grand opening of 2100 Memorial on Tuesday.

The new community features landscaped yards with sweeping views of downtown Houston, according to a press release.

The seniors’ residence provides 196 affordable housing units and modern amenities for seniors nearly five years after Hurricane Harvey destroyed the original building.

“Housing is more than buildings and units; the lack of quality affordable housing is a major driver of wealth and health disparities, and our seniors are among the most vulnerable,” said LaRence Snowden, Chair of the HHA Board of Commissioners. “From transforming existing communities with modern updates and resident resources, to implementing innovative solutions to increase the availability of affordable units throughout the city, HHA is committed to providing beneficial housing opportunities and durable.”
