Under One Roof: Who Develops Affordable Housing for Austin?
It’s early morning – still dark outside – and Walter Moreau is already done with his morning run. When I meet him he’s downtown, getting ready for his workout.
“I think there’s a lot of things here in the gym that translate to work,” he says.
Moreau leads Foundation Communities – Austin’s largest non-profit builder and manager of affordable housing.
“It’s that intensity, that can-do attitude that coaches are barking at you,” he says. “And if I can take that into the rest of the workday, I can help solve problems and build more housing.”
