Affordable Senior Living Beckons in Houston’s Third Ward: The Gray Project

Picture a vibrant oasis of affordable comfort and joy in the heart of Houston’s historic Third Ward—a promise of respite for seniors and their families. The Gray project, poised to break ground in late October, is a testament to the power of collaboration between New Hope Housing (NHH) and the Midtown Redevelopment Authority (MRA). It’s not just a housing project; it’s a gift to the community, made possible by MRA’s generous donation of land. Gray, at 2604 Gray Street, and Berry are set to open in 2025 and represent NHH’s 12th and 13th ventures in affordable housing.

A Home for Seniors with Modest Incomes

Gray’s mission is crystal clear: to offer beautiful, affordable apartment homes for seniors aged 55 and older with modest incomes. With 135 one- and two-bedroom floorplans, the project is a shining example of inclusivity—a testament to the belief that everyone deserves a comfortable, affordable place to call home.

Location: Where History Meets Home

What sets Gray apart? Its strategic location is within the vibrant tapestry of Houston’s historic Third Ward. This neighborhood pulsates with culture and history, creating the perfect backdrop for seniors to call home. Gray’s residents will be mere minutes away from an array of neighborhood attractions—a gateway to endless entertainment and a profound sense of community.

Amenities tailored for comfort

Gray’s design isn’t just about providing shelter; it’s about nurturing a community and lifestyle that seniors and their families will cherish. Step inside the apartments and you’ll discover energy-efficient appliances, chef-inspired kitchens, spacious walk-in closets, elegant wood-style flooring, and sprawling living areas. With ample storage space, you won’t need to rent off-site storage.

Building community, building lives

At Gray, they prioritize community. Residents will savor a rich tapestry of amenities, including an inviting outdoor courtyard with grills, a community playground for grandchild visits, private resident parking for convenience, a spacious community lounge for social gatherings, communal dining and prep spaces for shared meals, a learning center, and a lively calendar of community events and activities.

The future beckons

The Gray project embodies more than affordable housing; it’s about celebrating the rich tapestry of the Third Ward and crafting a thriving community where seniors flourish and stay close to family. Gray is where affordability meets comfort, where history meets the future—a bright, promising future for all.
