New Hope Housing's core purpose is to provide life-stabilizing, affordable, permanent housing with support services for people who live on limited incomes.

“Through my heartache and tears,
He brought me here. I love my place;
it’s my mansion.”

Renovation of 320 Hamilton

Working in close partnership with the City of Houston and Houston Housing Authority, we are currently in the pre-development phase to renovate 320 Hamilton, Houston’s first SRO property. When Hamilton opened in 1995, it established the state’s model for debt-free SRO housing in a supportive environment.

The renovation will preserve 127 units of direly needed affordable housing in the Downtown Management District, 100 feet from Minute Maid Park, adding an additional 20+ years of productive life to the building. Hamilton will include 78 units of Permanent Supportive Housing in support of the Mayor’s initiative to end chronic and veteran homelessness by 2016.

The property is designed by Glassman Shoemake Maldonado Architects, who designed New Hope’s internationally recognized Brays Crossing on I-45 South. The rendering below is conceptual.
