Fenix Estates is a proposed mixed-use development, which will include space for HCHA’s central offices, affordable housing units, integrated offices for social service providers, and commercial spaces. This will be a LEED certified community, utilizing high-quality construction materials, and an award-winning architect. For more information, please review our development overview and project FAQs.

The Retreat at Westlock

Address: 24001 SH 249 at Westlock Road, Tomball TX 77377
Type: Senior Housing (62+ and older)
Total Units: 140

Harris County Housing Authority (HCHA) has proposed a public-private partnership to build a 140 unit development exclusively for seniors age 62 years and older. The development is not funded with HUD Section 8 or Housing Choice Vouchers. HCHA currently has seven existing developments for seniors, and HCHA agreed to the higher age limit of 62 years and older for all household members in response to concerns raised by community advocates. Proposed rents at the development will range from $390 to $936. Once completed, the development will manage its own wait list for seniors earning 60% of the area median income or lower. The development will be privately managed, and compliance will be enforced both by the State of Texas and Harris County. For more information, please see our development overview.
