Legacy at Alazan
The San Antonio Housing Authority (Opportunity Home) is excited to spearhead the development of The Legacy at Alazán — formerly referred to as Alazan Lofts — a new 88-unit community, and expand the quality of affordable housing.
Opportunity Home partnered with the NRP Group and garnered 9 percent Low-Income Housing Tax Credits from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) to build the development.
The Legacy at Alazán will be an example of a modern, affordable housing development with amenities such as a community center, central heating and air conditioning and other conveniences older developments built in the 30s and 40s lack.
The San Antonio Housing Authority and The NRP Group LLC are proud to celebrate the history and future of the Alazán community with the groundbreaking of The Legacy at Alazán, a new apartment community.
The virtual groundbreaking features the unveiling of a special community altar, created by two local artists. Through contributions from community members, the altar pays tribute to those in the community that have come before.
The new development will have 80 affordable units (40 public housing units) and 8 market-rate units.
