Project Background & Status

Identified by the City of Dallas in May 2019 as a potential site to build housing for residents experiencing homelessness, 12000 Greenville Avenue is a 12.865-acre parcel in District 10 that is currently owned by Dallas Water Utilities (DWU).

Initial plans for Bonton Village @ Lake Highlands were publicly presented on June 1, 2020, to the Economic Development Committee as the first of five demonstration projects supported by the Office of Economic Development. 

The City Council on June 24, 2020, unanimously approved a 12-month option agreement that conveys the land to this project after our organization has raised a significant portion of the private funds necessary for construction and submits detailed plans that are informed by the community and our target population.
