SCHERTZ, TEXAS — A partnership between the Schertz Housing Authority and The NRP Group have broken ground on Aviator 1518, a 300-unit affordable housing development in Schertz. The project is financed through four percent housing tax credits allocated by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs. Additional development partners include Bank of America, Bexar County, Texas Home Collaborative, Coats Rose, MTR Engineering and Alta Architects.
Aviator 1518 will offer units in one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom floor plans. Units in the complex’s three-story central building are built with elevator-accessible design. Amenities will include a playground, pool, clubhouse and fitness center. The asset’s name was inspired by Randolph Air Force Base and its relationship to the history of Schertz. Aviator 1518 is slated for completion in 2026, with pre-leasing beginning in 2025.
