HOMESTEAD OAKS APARTMENTS
People with disabilities know first-hand how challenging it can be to secure access to affordable and accessible housing. The City of Austin addresses this with it’s S.M.A.R.T. program, incentivizing developers to build housing that is Safe, Mixed-income, Accessible, Reasonably-priced, and Transit-oriented. All these measures ensure the safety and quality of life for people with disabilities.
A wonderful example of a successful S.M.A.R.T. development, Homestead Oaks is a beautiful community on 29 acres of land in Southwest Austin. Altura advised Homestead on compliance standards, including accessible routes and parking, as well as entrances, doorways and bathrooms to fulfil FHA requirements.
