From the Housing Authority of the City of Austin's press release:
The Housing Authority of the City of Austin (HACA) announces the grand opening celebration for Pathways at Goodrich Place on Wednesday, September 14th, 9 a.m. at 2126 Goodrich Ave., Austin, TX 78704. The celebration will feature guest speakers, including City Councilmember Ann Kitchen, a ceremonial flag raising, and a ribbon cutting with residents of Goodrich celebrating the new 120 units of affordable housing in the Zilker neighborhood.
The completely rebuilt Pathways at Goodrich Place features significant enhancements to the 1970s-era public housing that had been Goodrich Place. HACA replaced the 40 units with 120 brand new modern apartments. Upgrades include central air conditioning, ceiling fans, all-new modern appliances, gigabit-speed Google Fiber service, a fitness center, a modern playground, and laundry connections. The new Goodrich Place also features onsite property management and maintenance services to better serve residents.
"Pathways at Goodrich Place is an exceptional opportunity to bring affordable housing to one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin," said Michael Gerber, HACA CEO. "Thanks to the support of Councilmember Ann Kitchen, and the entire City Council, we are building a new Goodrich community that our residents can be proud of—one that has beautiful new housing, excellent schools nearby, and is close to many excellent opportunities for employment."
"Austin needs more affordable housing in all parts of the city and HACA is delivering," said Councilmember Ann Kitchen. "HACA's redevelopment work at Goodrich Place has been a remarkable sight to see for District 5 and in partnership with the Zilker neighborhood. Tripling the number of units is truly remarkable. HACA is setting the bar high for building beautiful housing that enhances south Austin and the Zilker community".
