The Alley Flat Initiative is an award-winning collaboration between ACDDC, the Guadalupe Neighborhood Development Corporation, and the University of Texas Center for Sustainable Development. Through this program, ACDDC works with property owners to build green, affordable homes in the backyards of underutilized single-family lots.
Construction is complete on the Live Oak Trails Apartments, one of Foundation Communities' newest family-friendly affordable community. This 58 unit campus earned a 4 star rating under the Austin Energy Green Building program.
ACDDC is proud to have participated in the City of Austin's Soul-y Austin Business District Incubator to develop district plans for three emerging merchants associations across the city. We love seeing updates from the Manor Road, Red River, and 12th Street leaders as their merchants associations grow!
What is Community Design?
Source: Association for Community Design
Community Design is a movement focused on the creation and management of environments for people by identifying and solving social, economic, and environmental problems as they relate to the built environment. This process promotes change from the neighborhood to the regional scale and seeks to meet community needs through participatory decision-making.
