The City of Irving, in partnership with Key Life Homes, is set to begin construction on new single-family residences on Tudor Lane.
The launch of construction starts a new chapter for the Lamar/Brown neighborhood. Federal grant fund assistance is available for qualified first-time homebuyers. Fourteen single-family attached and 13 single-family detached homes will be available for purchase.
The new homes will feature three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each energy-efficient home will be approximately 1,300 square feet with a rear-entry two-car garage, Energy Star appliances, vaulted ceilings and tall kitchen cabinets. Buyers will have the opportunity to customize some of the housing features, such as carpeting and paint colors.
“The redevelopment of Irving’s Tudor Lane area presents a great opportunity for families looking for a safe, reinvigorated place to live,” said Community Resources Director Chris Hooper. “This is a unique chance for residents to take advantage of a federally funded program that helps provide a brighter future for Irving.”
Seminars are planned to educate prospective buyers about the program, qualification requirements and eligibility for assistance. The seminars are set for 2 to 3 p.m. at 125 N. MacArthur Blvd., on Sep. 8, 15, 22 and 29.
Reservations are required and space is limited. To sign up, visit www.irealty.us.com or call (214) 396-4071.
