Midtown Redevelopment Authority

Adjacency Project
 
FOR LOCAL COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATIONS
 
Project Description
Midtown Redevelopment Authority (MRA) has acquired significant land in the Third Ward Area. In order to further the development of affordable housing by local Community Development Corporations (CDCs) working in the area, MRA has created the “Adjacency Project”. Pursuant to this Project, MRA will commit to reserve certain lots for a twelve month period for CDCs which own land, but are in need of adjacent lots or lots in close proximity that are owned by MRA for the proposed project and possibly other lots to be acquired.
Submittal Requirements
To be considered for the commitment of lots, a CDC must provide the following information:
1) A site plan for the proposed project that illustrates in three different colors, the CDC-owned land, MRA-owned land for which a commitment to reserve is being requested and land to be acquired.
2) A description of the project to be developed including number of units, targeted population, and income levels to be served (stated as a percent of the Area Median Income).
3) A market study supporting the development, if available.
4) Whether the CDC will self-develop the proposed project or, if applicable, indicate the development partner the CDC is working with. In which case, a letter from the development partner indicating its role and commitment to the project must be included.
5) The experience of the CDC if self-developing or the partner, if applicable in developing projects of similar size and scope.
6) Identify any and all predevelopment activities that have been completed in furtherance of the project.
7) Provide a timeline of the major objectives and milestones to be accomplished in the next twelve (12) months and the project timeline to obtain financing for the project.
Submittal Review Process
The Adjacency Project is open ended. Request for consideration should be submitted by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by U.S. mail to Center for Civic and Public Policy Improvement (CCPPI) at 5445 Almeda, Suite 504, Houston, TX 77004, Attention: Algenita Davis. CCPPI shall review submittals and make recommendations to MRA regarding the request within 30 days of receiving same.
Letters of Commitment
When deemed appropriate, based on the information submitted, MRA will issue a letter of commitment to reserve lost for a period of twelve (12) months. During the 12-month period, the CDC must submit quarterly reports indicating progress made in achieving the objectives and milestones, as well as advising of any circumstances that have arisen that will impact development of the proposed project. If substantial progress has been made at the end of the 12-month period, the commitment may be extended by MRA if it appears that the project has a reasonable certainly of coming to fruition.
