CityWalk@Akard, which opened in 2010, is a mixed-use building at 511 North Akard in downtown Dallas that includes 206 residential units.  200 units are affordable housing units, and 100 of those units are dedicated as housing for those who were formerly homeless or at-risk for homelessness.  CitySquare (previously known as Central Dallas Ministries) was the organization that formed CityWalk@Akard’s nonprofit developer, the CDCDC (Central Dallas Community Development Corporation).  CitySquare offices inside the building and provides resources onsite to the residents of the building.  The units which are set aside for the formerly homeless provide homes with privacy and dignity for those who previously did not have any place to call home (except perhaps a shelter), and the onsite services provided by CitySquare help to give them a chance to reintegrate back into society.
