New Affordable Housing Coming to College Park

Cruz Development Corporation, in partnership with Housing Initiative Partnership, Inc., is set to begin construction on a 51-unit low-income housing project called Branchville Crossing in College Park, Maryland.  

The four-story building will offer one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units, with roughly half reserved for individuals and families earning 30% or less of the area median income. Fifteen units will be available at 60% of AMI, and five units will accommodate tenants with accessibility or sensory adaptation requirements.  

“As we’ve done for 75 years across the Eastern Seaboard, our goal is to elevate and uplift these future residents and their neighborhood, bringing the area an affordable multifamily building that will be virtually indistinguishable from a market-rate offering,” says Armond McCoy, project manager with Cruz Development. The project aims to achieve LEED Gold certification.
