Third Ward to be revamped as students gain interest in University of Houston

Two collegiate housing projects proposed, affordable homes being built nearby
  • One development will demolish existing homes to make way for parking.
  • Fountain Residential Partners is building its third student housing development for University of Houston students.
  • Homebuilder Epic Homes is focused on redeveloping the Third Ward.

Near the northwest tip of the University of Houston a specific section of the city’s Third Ward community is being redeveloped, with several student housing projects leading the way. These projects are likely to drive up nearby home values, which is good news for homeowners in a neighborhood where the common list price is below $150,000 and vacant lots are prevalent
