A New Future?
Part of the recovery money will go toward rebuilding housing for low-income Galvestonians on the now-vacant site of Magnolia Homes. The new communities are envisioned as mixed-income, mixed-use areas that will include townhouses, multi-family apartment buildings, workout facilities, playgrounds, and shops. When complete, the new Magnolia Homes will have between 172 to 220 units (69 to 88 of which would be set aside as public housing) and the re-built Cedar Terrace will have around 125 units (50 of which will be set aside as public housing).
