Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County has broken ground on a new 102,679 square-foot mixed-used development that will offer 104 multi-family apartments designated as affordable housing.

The Vineyard on Lancaster will cost $19 million to complete, $12 million of which is funded by housing tax credits, the National Housing Trust Fund and the Affordable Housing Program, the organization said in a news release.

Additional support has been provided by private foundations including Amon G. Carter Foundation, The Mabee Foundation, The Ryan Foundation, The Burnett Foundation and The Sid Richardson Foundation.

The two-building campus of The Vineyard is at 1401 E. Lancaster Ave. It is on the last parcel of vacant property currently owned by UGM-TC and is expected to house its first resident no later than Dec. 31, 2019.

“Our community’s recent population boom has overtaxed an already stressed housing challenge. For the past five years, our leadership has been prayerfully and strategically planning for the opportunity to provide more affordable housing options in this community,” Don Shisler, president and chief executive officer of Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County, said in the news release.

“Anyone will be eligible to apply to live at The Vineyard on Lancaster, where seven different types of housing vouchers will also be accepted for payment,” he said.

UGM said the project was made possible through collaborative partnerships with the City of Fort Worth, JPS Health Network, MHMR of Tarrant County and Tarrant County College.

Highlights of the development will include:

– 88 one-bedroom apartments and 16 two-bedroom apartments of >920 square feet.

– Secured entry with 24/7 security camera monitoring.

– On-site case management provided for all residents – including many supportive services provided by UGM-CT and unique to affordable housing.

– On-site medical care through Healing Shepherd Clinic, connected with JPS Health Network and moving from across the street.

The architect for The Vineyard on Lancaster is Schwarz Hanson Architects and the general contractor is Scott Price at Fort Construction. Grapevine-based Alpha Barnes will provide leasing services.
