A new senior living community is planned to come to Tomball, with the city council supporting the project and approving its application for federal housing tax credits.

The proposed community, called Tomball Senior Village, will be located along Tomball Tollway and Medical Complex Drive on a 3.6-acre tract, the proposal shows. Texas Inter-Faith Housing, a Houston-based nonprofit developer, is building the development.

“Our mission is to build affordable housing,” Texas Inter-Faith Housing Development Consultant Russ Michaels said. “We don’t build housing, rent it and then flip it. We develop it and own it.”

The community will be made up of luxury apartments, some for people on fixed income and others for people without any income restrictions, Michaels said.

Amenities shown in the plans for the community include a fitness center, a pool, a business center and resident gardens. The complex will offer both 1- and 2-bedroom apartments. Michaels said the developer also offers residential services like life coaching.

The complex will be for residents ages 55 and older, Michaels said.

“We believe we can put in a low-impact, up to 60 units development,” Michaels said. “Construction is starting in 2022, so it does have a way to go.”

Russell said the community would be mixed income, with some market-rate units, but the bulk of the units would be for people making 50-60 percent of the area median income, which in Tomball is about $44,000 annually.

Council Member Lori Klein Quinn said she wasn’t sure the location was right for the community, being located near numerous medical facilities and businesses, and also wanted more time to consider the proposal.

“It kind of sounds like we’re being rushed into it,” Quinn said. “Has anyone reached out to the medical facility to get their opinions? I’m just not sure it’s the right location for this.”

Russell said his company had done outreach with the city’s zoning department, meeting with them and finding the current location to be zoned retail, which is where senior housing fits.

“I don’t think we’ve reached out specifically to the medical facilities in this area,” he said. “One thing about senior housing is that seniors like being in that area.”

Quinn said the facilities looked beautiful and that she thought what they were doing was great but still didn’t like its location.

“I’m just not sure that’s the right location for this since that is our main street of Business 249 and the main entrance into our medical facilities,” she said.
