Casa Feliz, an 89 unit LIHTC development project scattered on 12 different lots, is the next phase of a larger neighborhood revitalization effort in the Trumbull neighborhood of Albuquerque’s International Zone. Focused on transforming “missing teeth” vacant lots in the neighborhood, the project will contribute to a desirable and vibrant urban living experience within this diverse and important Albuquerque community. The scattered-site project will complement and leverage the existing 68-unit Plaza Feliz project developed by GAHP a few years ago, which includes community facilities and day care which will also serve the new project. The planned Casa Feliz will have a complementary focus on special needs residents. The project recognizes the Trumbull Neighborhood and International District’s aspirations to preserve housing affordability and cultural identity. These aspirations have the support of the City of Albuquerque, which is making the redevelopment building sites available for the project. The not-for-profit developer, Greater Albuquerque Housing Partnership (GAHP) provides high-quality, dignified affordable housing for Albuquerque working families in established central areas, near jobs and transportation options, allowing families to stay together in their neighborhoods. To enhance mobility and to encourage walking and interaction with other community residents of all ages, the site chosen is near the Cesar Chavez Park and Community Center, police station, schools, shopping and high capacity public transit. In this redeveloping area, the security of residents and their property is a very important concern. The site design directly reflects that community concern.
