The Women's Home - Jane Cizik Garden Place
Location: Houston, Texas
The Women's Home affordable housing project is a singles-only complex for employed women who are gaining their social independence after participating in a rehabilitation program. It contains 87 single-bedroom apartment units along with a common building for the tenants' use that contains supporting offices, a living area and an exercise room. Located on three acres, the complex provides easy access to a local park as well as a protected green courtyard for resident use. With nearby transportation hubs to serve the residents, the number of parking spaces has been reduced to fully utilize the site for green space and to lessen automobile dependence. The location allows the residents to take advantage of the nearby shopping, schools and other social infrastructure.
