Multi-Family Development Staff
With over 590 rental units and over 100 more currently under construction, there is never a dull moment for Avenue CDC’s Multi-Family Development Team, Jason Holoubek, Nicholas Armstrong, and Anton Edwards.
As the Director of Rental Housing and Economic Development, Holoubek manages the development of Avenue’s multi-family and commercial properties. He has a background in urban planning and analysis and previously served as a Senior Planner for the City of Houston.
Armstrong, Avenue’s Multi-Family Development Assistant, brings years of experience in community outreach, legal office administration and non-profit development. “Personally, what I find most rewarding is being able to witness how even a small contribution on a project can go a long way in making a difference that could positively impact someone’s life,” says Armstrong.
Edwards, Avenue’s Property Acquisition Specialist, brings years of experience in housing revitalization and real estate owned marketplace. “I love the opportunity to have a lasting impact on our community. I am inspired by the thought that my work will have a positive effect on the community long after I am gone,” says Edwards.
