Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency provided $1.5 million in Affordable Housing Tax Credits and $21 million in Multifamily Bonds to transform the historic Page Woodson School into affordable apartments.

Opening its doors in the early 1900s as the Lowell School, Page Woodson stood as a beacon in northeast Oklahoma City for decades. Its storied history includes transformation in 1934 to become the all-Black Douglass High School.

Closing in 1993, the school fell into disrepair and was abandoned until historic rehabilitation efforts lead to its rebirth as affordable housing in 2017.

New Page, LLC was awarded a maximum of $1 million in 4-percent Affordable Housing Tax Credits and a maximum of $25 million in tax-exempt multifamily bonds to convert the former Page Woodson School, 600 N. High Ave. in Oklahoma City, into 68 apartments and to construct a new building to house an additional 68 apartments on the same property.
