Groundbreaking is scheduled for tomorrow on an $18 million Midtown project that will include 192 housing units for homeless vets.
Near the old Days Inn on Travis next to the 59 underpass, the Travis Street Plaza will include housing and support services for homeless and disabled veterans. The location is at the southern edge of Midtown.
Funding comes from the feds and Amegy Bank, the Supportive Housing National Equity Fund, Inc., and the Houston Housing Authority.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
