Firm recommends demolition, reconstruction for 2 of 3 Waco public housing complexes

Waco Trib
By PHILLIP ERICKSEN pericksen@wacotrib.com Jan 18, 2019

Construction would not start for another two to three years, but consultants told the Waco Housing Authority Commission it would be the best way to proceed as the commission converts the complexes from public housing to Section 8 housing under the federal Rental Assistance Demonstration program.

The Boston-based consulting firm, Recap Real Estate Advisors, recommended rehabilitation of South Terrace, 100 Kennedy Circle.

The commission must next decide on the scope of work and restructuring it wants at the Kate Ross Homes, 937 S. 11th St., and Estella Maxey Place, 1809 J.J. Flewellen Road, the city’s other two public housing complexes. A total of 902 low-income, elderly or disabled residents live at the three properties.

The firm recommended demolition and redevelopment of Kate Ross and Estella Maxey into effectively new complexes.

As soon as La Quinta and West Bay retail development began construction on 10th St., I feared Kate Ross' symbol of charity was going to fall. It is a landmark, but one that is laden with poverty and the associated crime and drugs that go with it. The agenda is to keep expanding the 'protection bubble' of Baylor's students.
