Midtown Terrace: Houston Texas
Cloudbreak Houston, LLC
Cloudbreak Houston, L.L.C.’s Midtown Terrace Suites opened it’s door in 2003. It has housed nearly 3,000 veterans in transitional and long term housing with program and support services provided by U.S. VETS, Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center, Goodwill Industries of Greater Houston, Houston Volunteer Lawyers Program, Houston Food Bank, and others. Leasing support from City of Houston and Harris County Housing Authorities through the HUD/VASH program as well as the Houston/Harris County Continuum of Care has offered much needed support to resident veterans.
Originally a Days Inn Hotel, Midtown Terrace now features 328 beds in 286 units for homeless and formerly homeless veterans. This entails 72 transitional housing beds operated by U.S. VETS under the VA Grant and Per Diem program, 54 units of Permanent Supportive Housing also operated by U.S. VETS, 50 project-based HUD VASH units supported by VA; and 118 units of permanent housing with support services provided by U.S. VETS, VA and Goodwill. Harris County, City of Houston, Amegy Bank and Cantwell-Anderson, Inc. provided the capital for this development.
Travis Street Plaza Apartments
This four-story residential building over a mixed use ground floor podium deck will provide 192 studio apartments and over 3,000 square feet of store front facilities. Travis Street Plaza will serve as a welcomed addition to the existing 286-unit facility known as Midtown Terrace Suites already in operation on the campus. The new facility will provide permanent supportive housing targeting lower income veterans who are disabled, recently separated, and/or have experienced homelessness. Residents will have access to supportive services, such as benefits counseling, mental health counseling, medical care, job training, and rehabilitation through a medley of service providers. Travis Street broke ground in December 2011 and substantial completion is anticipated by the end of November 2012.
The Light Rail Lofts will feature 105 permanent housing units with supportive services for formerly homeless veterans.
