The Holston will include three-story garden-style apartments in the fast-growing Alliance corridor.

Fort Worth Housing Solutions and its developer partner, AMCAL, broke ground on the first phase of a 520-unit, Class-A apartment community adjacent to AllianceTexas.

Named for Barbara Holston, the housing authority’s president for 23 years, The Holston will be comprised of four three-story garden-style buildings set on a 12.32-acre site. The first apartment homes are expected to be ready for occupancy in January 2021, and the entire property completed by June 2021.

Half of the units will be market-rate and half will be priced for households earning up to 80 percent of the area median income. More than 500 companies and 60,000 jobs are based in AllianceTexas.

“We are pleased to bring our first multi-family property to the Alliance area,” said Mary-Margaret Lemons, president of Fort Worth Housing Solutions. “The area’s phenomenal growth is generating more and more job opportunities, and the growing workforce needs housing that is both reasonably priced and conveniently located.”

Holston was a visionary leader who steered Fort Worth Housing Solutions when it began to acquire, rehabilitate and develop affordably-priced housing more than two decades ago, so it is fitting that a property be named in her honor, Lemons said.

“I’m pleased and excited that Fort Worth Housing Solutions continues to develop the partnerships that create this type of high-quality housing for the citizens of Fort Worth,” said Holston, adding that she feels “tremendously honored” to have a property named for her.
