The Lee is Taking Shape on East Houston

Just to recap, the initiative is helmed by Common Ground, a non-profit group specializing in affordable housing and community outreach. According to a Times article from August 2008, once complete, the structure will house 263 studio rental units – 105 of which are reserved for low income housing, 104 for homeless persons with illnesses, and the remaining 54 for young adults “transitioning out of foster homes.”
