From the Housing Authority of the City of Austin's (HACA) newsletter:
Last month we marked two huge milestones in HACA's history: the grand opening of 156 brand new units at Chalmers East, and the groundbreaking on 156 additional units at Chalmers West. Thank you to the blue-shirted HACA staff in attendance and for showing our City and State leaders how the best agency in the nation improves resident quality of life.
"You come to a place like this, and it's just so beautiful and inspiring," said Austin Mayor Steve Adler during the event. "I am so excited for the residents of Chalmers. Your place in this City is core to who we are in Austin."
Also in attendance were representatives from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, the City's Housing & Planning Department, and community partners from CommUnity Care, Boys & Girls Club, and Zavala Elementary to name a few.
Once completed in 2023, Pathways at Chalmers Courts will have 398 state-of-the-art apartments where 158 units of eighty-year-old public housing once stood. To view the entire grand opening celebration, visit KXAN's coverage HERE, and to check out photos from the day, please go HERE.
