I stumbled upon this beautiful low-income housing project while biking through Little Haiti a couple of weeks ago.  Carrfour Supportive Housing  owns the Little Haiti Gateway housing complex, which was built in 1947.

Many of the units face a courtyard which has a resident common area complete with a barbecue grill and picnic tables. All of the units have small front porches that are connected by a series of concrete paths and covered by mature oak trees which provide a nice canopy of shade for residents.

The grounds are very well maintained and you can sense that the residents are looking after their home.   This is great example of low-income housing done tastefully.  Take a look for yourselves.
