Unlocking Affordable Housing in the historic
JJ Seabrook Neighborhood


  • Add 264 housing units in East Austin, prioritizing affordability in an increasingly unaffordable area
  • Support unhoused individuals through housing assistance and on-site resources
  • Preserve East Austin's culture while uplifting artists and supporting the community with 10 live-work units on site for artists

Problem Overview

Seabrook Square was initiated to address the need for sustainable, affordable, and diverse housing options in East Austin. With an ever growing housing crisis, Austin has insufficient supply to meet the increasing demand. The National Low-Income Housing Coalition found that nation-wide there are only 37 affordable rental homes available for every 100 extremely low-income renting households. Despite increases in construction material, Capital A Housing is focused on building value-efficient housing and not only helping the community with housing but also indirect employment. Seabrook Square will offer spaces that are essential to planting the foundation for a supportive and unified community.


Capital A Housing integrates the concepts of affordable housing and well-being with expertise in curating residential spaces in close proximity to local food banks and healthcare. They have partnered with the National Housing Partnership Foundation (NHP Foundation) which provides sustainable, affordable housing, and Integral Care which assists communities in regaining health. As a real estate developer in the Austin community, Capital A Housing holds a sharp understanding of the neighborhood and city as well.


The proposal was divided into three subcategories of priorities to break down the needs of each overarching goal; affordable housing, social service, and community. The affordable housing priorities included maximizing the amount of affordable housing and Permanent Support Housing (PSH) units with on-site support services. The social service priorities entailed the necessity of the on-site support to work to the highest potential. The community priorities incorporated the need of a public ground floor, which will have social services like PSH, counselors, kitchens, lounge spaces to create a sense of community for those experiencing housing transition. In addition there will be more community spaces in the complex like meeting spaces for businesses operating in the neighborhood and more. Capital A Housing aims to integrate the development, practicing environmental sustainability, accessibility to green spaces, and displaying art from local artists.

Planned for construction in East Austin in the JJ Seabrook Neighborhood, Seabrook Square will consist of 4 residential buildings nested into green spaces and active transportation linkages. The amenities for the property include an on-site parking garage, open community spaces to encourage engagement, and public art.
