Austin Habitat for Humanity expanding Montopolis subdivision

To date, the organization has built 98 homes in Montopolis. Once this new project is complete, there will be 110 Habitat homes in the area.

AUSTIN, Texas — Austin Habitat for Humanity is adding more homes to a Montopolis neighborhood.

More than 20 years ago, the organization finished construction on its first complete subdivision neighborhood, Mary Vice Estates, on Circulo de Amistad in the Montopolis area. Now, Habitat for Humanity is heading back to the same neighborhood to build even more houses.

To date, the organization has built 98 homes in Montopolis. Once this new project is complete, there will be 110 Habitat homes in the area.

"Our history of home construction projects in Montopolis exemplifies how our land use has become more efficient. For example, Mary Vice Estates – next door– is comprised of the one-story, single-family home Habitat for Humanity is traditionally known for," said Phyllis Snodgrass, CEO of Austin Habitat for Humanity. "In Lee Meadows, on Egger Street, we started building up. Utilizing two-story homes allowed us to accommodate more families on a similar-sized street. Now we are innovating to build even more affordable homeownership opportunities in the Montopolis area yet again."

Crews will break ground on the expansion at 9 a.m. Friday, July 8. Austin Mayor Steve Adler and other City officials will be present, as will KVUE Daybreak's Rob Evans.
