NHPF Builds Houston


Beginning in 1995 with the acquisition of Oakbrook Apartments, The NHP Foundation (NHPF) has long had a presence in the greater Houston area, which it is now seeking to rapidly expand as the booming Houston economy demands more safe, affordable housing for its residents. NHPF, a leading provider of affordable housing in 16 states and the District of Columbia, acquired its second and third properties in the City in 2013 and 2014. Now, NHPF has embarked on a bevy of new construction projects for the neediest citizens of Space City. The acquisition of Pepper Tree Manor and Cleme Manor Apartments in 2013 and 2014 were made possible via the outstanding relationships we have cultivated with the City of Houston and Mayor Sylvester Turner as well as Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, whose district includes the 5th Ward where Cleme Manor is located.

NHPF Builds Houston.

In partnership with the City of Houston, NHPF completed a substantial redevelopment of Cleme Manor, providing ongoing management and security enhancements that have resulted in a 27% decrease in crime in the area. NHPF’s adherence to ESG investment principles has helped Cleme Manor Apartments become an integral part of the revitalization of the community. We see the path up and out of poverty beginning with multifamily housing enriched with services provided by our subsidiary Operation Pathways—services that families and seniors draw on to expand opportunities for education, financial growth, health and well-being. Working with the Harris County Housing Authority and the City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department, NHPF is undertaking construction of three new construction projects which include a mix of valuable senior living, units of permanent supportive housing, and multifamily units. Those projects, Temenos Apartments, The Citadel Apartments, and RoseMary’s Place Apartments, are being constructed in partnership with local non-profits and stakeholders, ensuring that local communities are integrally involved in the development process from day one. For example, NHPF is partnering with Temenos Community Development Corporation on the Temenos Apartments complex. Temenos’ mission is to provide affordable housing opportunities, supportive services, and employment resources to low- to extremely low income persons in the Houston area on their journey to self-sufficiency. Preserving and expanding access to affordable housing in the Houston metro area is just one way that NHPF strives to build and preserve more equitable, resilient communities that people can afford.

Cleme Manor Apartments 5300 Coke Street, Houston, TX 77020 / 284 units

Originally constructed in 1970, Cleme Manor is situated on 12.8 acres east of downtown Houston in the Greater Fifth Ward-Finnegan Park neighborhood. There are a total of 284 residential units in Cleme Manor’s 24-building garden style community. The surrounding neighborhood is in the midst of a

comprehensive City of Houston redevelopment with over $35 million in streetscape improvements, multifamily housing construction, and single family rehabilitations. Cleme Manor is part of the City’s Tier 1 redevelopment zone, an area which has received targeted city investments. At the time of its acquisition, Cleme Manor had not undergone a comprehensive rehabilitation in over 20 years, and many of the building elements had reached the end of their useful economic lives. A substantial and comprehensive rehabilitation of the property was required. Construction included demolition down to the studs, disposal of asbestos- containing materials, replacement of all windows, doors, existing interior wiring, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, countertops, fixtures, sinks, toilets, 75% of all tubs, re-piping all waterlines, repair and replacement of sewer vent and sanitary piping, replacement of the property’s existing HVAC system with new equipment meeting modern energy efficiency standards, and a complete renovation of the property’s office, laundry and community service areas. The redeveloped property includes ample space for resident services and new landscaping and exterior recreation areas for children and adults.
