Eyewitness News has confirmed that plans to build some low income housing near the Katy Mills Mall have come to an end. Last week, we told you how those who live near the proposed site were concerned about the proposal to build 176 apartments next to the Grand Harbor subdivision. On Friday, the developer confirmed they decided to pull out of the project after realizing that income levels in the area are higher than the government program allows for the development.

He also acknowledged that the public was heavily against the idea, and says the city council was planning to block the deal, too.
