SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio is continuing to expand its affordable housing options in the city.
The city announced 220 multifamily rental units and 48 for-sale housing units, bringing this year's total to seven projects.
Here is a breakdown of the new housing areas:
The city said 15 of the 48 for-sale units will be priced for families earning below 120 percent of the AMI. The project will include 10 units reserved for households earning less than 80 percent of AMI and two units for households earning less than 60 percent of AMI.
Officials expect the new units to be complete by December 2021.
"Providing affordable housing to families in San Antonio is critical to the future of our city,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “These new affordable housing units align with the Mayor’s Housing Policy Task Force Report, and I am pleased to see that we are bringing more affordable rental and for-sale housing units to the center city and SA Tomorrow regional centers.”
