New affordable housing development set to open in South Austin

A new affordable housing development will open in South Austin later this year. Bluebonnet Studios is going up on South Lamar near Del Curto Road.

It will house 107 single adults including low income workers, homeless veterans, seniors and people with disabilities.

The nonprofit organization Foundation Communities is building the development. Rent is expected to about $500.

Executive Director Walter Moreau says it's not just housing "but also support programs to help people be successful, be on their feet. Employment, mental health programs as well as community programs. We'll have coffee hour and supper club and, space like (an) outdoor deck where people can relax and know their neighbors."

Foundation Communities owns and operates 16 affordable housing properties across the Austin area.
