John Goldberg Apartments for Senior Citizens
114 Eastwood, Houston, Texas 77011
This sixty-five (65) unit elderly housing community was developed by the Latino Learning Center in 2000 in response to the need for affordable housing by low-income elderly being displaced in the East End as property values soared. All unit were occupied within one (1) week and currently there is a one (1) year waiting list. The project was developed with a $3.6 million dollar grant from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and a $236,000 grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank.
Often referred by area residents, as “the Hyatt of the barrio”, the quiet apartment community is the crown jewel of the Latino Learning Center`s community accomplishments. The architectural design reflects the cultural roots of the predominantly Mexican community where it is located and resembles the traditional hacienda. The gated community is equipped with security cameras and controlled access gates. All sixty-five apartments are one-(1) bedroom units containing 499 square feet of living space. Laundry rooms are located in each building and the spacious community center provides for tenant gatherings and parties.
