In August of 2008, GNDC completed its first affordable multi-family housing project and named  it La Vista de Guadalupe.  La Vista de Guadalupe  sits prominently on top of a hill on 8th street, directly behind the French Legation Museum, and offers a stunning view of downtown Austin.

There are twenty two units in total and units range from one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom.  All units are  equipped with  nine foot ceilings, dishwashers, and washers and dryers.

This project was made possible by the Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs, which awarded GNDC over three million dollars in tax credits.  The Austin Housing Finance CorporationWells Fargo Bank, and the Meadows Foundationprovided additional funding.  A land donation and deferred developer fee was provided by GNDC.

Diana McIver and Associates provided consulting services throughout the development process.

La Vista Plays!

In February of 2014,  GNDC staff, La Vista tenant volunteers  and Fun Abounds  installed play equipment at La Vista’s courtyard for kids of all ages to enjoy for many years to come.  Check out these photos.
