Alley Flat Initiative

A collaboration of three groups — the Austin Community Design and Development Center (ACDDC), the Guadalupe Neighborhood Development Corporation, and the University of Texas Center for Sustainable Development—the Alley Flat Initiative has designed and built 12 flats in the city. Accessed from Austin’s extensive network of underutilized alleys, "Alley Flats" are small, detached residential units that seek to create affordable housing through efficient designs, sustainable technologies and innovative home ownership financing.   The Alley Flat Initiative won the Envision Central Texas Community Stewardship Award for Redevelopment in both 2009 and 2011.
