LaEstrella, Oak Cliff’s new affordable urban townhome address, is reaching completion and now seeing move-ins as more buyers qualify for financing within the income limitations established for potential homeowners.
Developed in cooperation with the City of Dallas, LaEstrella is seen as the place where low income meets high expectations. Built on-time and with budget, the townhomes feature high-grade finishes like granite countertops, vinyl-plank floors, stainless appliances, kitchen islands and two-car garages. One walk-through and you’ll see how beautifully finished each floorplan is, and how the room layouts work to maximize the space.
“When we began this project, we started with the premise that we could increase the supply of owner-occupied housing,” said CHI Secretary Joe Dingman. “We see that as vital for the future of society and the community because it creates vibrant neighborhoods, a tax base and good housing where owners accumulate equity.”
“We think these homes are perfect in all respects, for Dallas as a whole, for Oak Cliff, for the immediate neighbors, and most of all, for the residents. Catholic Housing Initiative is pleased to sponsor LaEstrella and to accomplish these goals.”
The property recently celebrated its grand opening. Hailing the address as a new standard for affordable housing, Catholic Housing Initiative Secretary-Treasurer Joe Dingman and Dallas District 1 Senior Affairs Commissioner Carmen Arana welcomed notables such as Councilman Scott Griggs and Dallas County Commissioner Dr. Elba Garcia to tour the property and participate in the ribbon cutting.
Developer Marc Birnbaum was also welcomed and spoke to the crowd explaining how LaEstrella was built to higher standards while still reaching completion on time and under budget.
Father Martin Moreno, pastor, St. Cecelia Parish, offered a blessing and welcome message to all attendees, reinforcing the intent to serve all individuals in need.
