SAWS Impact Fee Waivers for the Tampico Apartments Development


SUMMARY:

An Ordinance approving $334,464 in SAWS impact fee waivers to the San Antonio Housing Authority for Tampico Apartments, an affordable multifamily development located at 200 Tampico Street in Council District 5.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The San Antonio Housing Authority has partnered with Mission DG to develop Tampico Apartments, a mixed-income multifamily development that will be located on 3.76 acres at 200 Tampico Street, between IH-35 and Alazan Creek in Council District 5. On January 16, 2020, the City Council approved a Resolution of No Objection for the project, which was submitted as part of the developer's application for non-competitive 4% Housing Tax Credits from the Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs.

Tampico Apartments includes 200 units, of which 136 will be affordable. The income mix is planned as follows:

* 10 units will be reserved for households earning up to 40% of AMI;
* 18 units will be reserved for households earning up to 50% of AMI;
* 70 units will be reserved for households earning up to 60% of AMI;
* 20 units will be reserved for households earning up to 70% of AMI;
