is high-style made doable

As a SMART Housing community, Miller Lofts @ Plant Zero participates in the federally-funded LIHTC program. This allows us to provide luxury apartments and first-rate amenities at surprisingly affordable rents.

Another huge benefit – SMART Housing rents are capped by the LIHTC program, and can’t increase faster than inflation. This means that, even if there’s a line of people at the leasing office door that stretches to the James River, your rent isn’t going to skyrocket.

A luxury apartment you love with a surprisingly affordable rent? AND it’s guaranteed to stay affordable? Sounds like a smart combination to us.

So what’s the catch? Why isn’t everyone doing this?

The answer is that not everyone qualifies for the SMART Housing program.  To be eligible, your household’s total income must not exceed certain set maximums. Use our quick online calculator below to see if you qualify.
