Crosby, Texas—LDG Development has started work on Newport Village, an 80-unit affordable apartment project in the East Texas town of Crosby. The property will offer one-, two-, and three-bedroom units to income-restricted families.

Residents in the new apartments will have access to a furnished fitness center, business center equipped with computers and complimentary wifi, plus a community room.

All together, Newport Village will be a $13.5 million project, with the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs allocating tax credit funding for the project.

Louisville-based LDG Development is a commercial developer and specialist in affordable multifamily housing projects. The company has developed or rehabbed over 4,000 residential units and a number of commercial properties in 12 states as far west as Texas and Kansas, and is about to complete the Paddock at Norwood, a 228-unit affordable housing property in Austin.
