Mayfair Village is Ability Housing’s first multifamily development. This was an extremely
distressed property that suffered from high crime rates. It serves low-income and formerly
homeless individuals and families, and provides voluntary resources to all residents.
When Ability Housing acquired it, Renaissance Village was a boarded and abandoned rental property. We renovated housing that had resembled military barracks into a property which transformed the community in which it was located.
When acquired, Oakland Terrace was a 42-year old building requiring a substantial rehabilitation. Now, the high-quality and affordable apartments are providing safe, stable homes to low-income individuals and families.
Village on Wiley is a new construction 43-unit property. Located in a neighborhood comprised primarily of single-family homes, the property was designed to resemble a single-family housing sub-division.
Village on Mercy is a new construction 166-unit project designed to complement and improve the aesthetic of the surrounding neighborhood. Village on Mercy is a prime example of how Ability Housing transforms areas of blight into community assets.
Village on Hyde Park is a new construction project. The three-story garden apartment building provides affordable housing to low-income individuals and families with a beautiful outdoor recreation area and access to on-site supportive services.
Wayne Densch previously operated as a transitional housing program and is currently being converted into apartments. The multi-family site will provide high quality, service-enriched affordable and supportive housing; with a focus on serving formerly homeless individuals and families.
Dozier Apartments is a two-story apartment building providing affordable housing to low-income individuals and families located in Springfield and just minutes from downtown.
Gannet Pointe is a new construction project and joint venture with Birdsong Housing Partners. The beautiful two building property provides affordable housing to low-income individuals and families and access to on-site supportive services.
CASA is Ability Housing’s first development, consisting of 22 homes scattered throughout Duval County. CASA provides quality, affordable housing for adults with a disability; it is called CASA because each home is Convenient, Affordable, Safe, and Accessible.
Shuttered in 2019, Lake Forest Elementary now sits as an unused and unoccupied property within Jacksonville’s Lake Forest neighborhood. Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) approved a proposal from Ability Housing to redevelop the property into a garden-style apartment community with up to 180 units, including a combination of market-rate and affordable rental units for working families; 25% of the units will be reserved for DCPS personnel. With Ability Housing’s expertise as a nonprofit developer, the organization can provide community-focused amenities beyond what a traditional developer would typically offer — including space for an early learning center to serve families across the Lake Forest community.
