On the Drawing Board
RAD Phase II
Brighton Housing Authority (BHA) is redeveloping five duplexes across two sites, which have been converted from public housing through the U.S. Housing and Urban Development RAD Conversion Program. The two locations will provide much-needed and often underrepresented three, four, and five bedroom unit sizes in today’s available affordable housing inventory. These units will serve those at 30% and 60% AMI. The RAD Phase II sites are located at 301-303, 315-317, and 327-329 North 5th Avenue & 65-75 and 73-75 South 18th Avenue in Brighton. Both sites maintain shared courtyards and are located within walking distance of several amenities such as parks, grocery stores, and several schools.
Hughes Station Rehabilitation
In 2017, BHA acquired Hughes Station Apartments located at 233 North Main Street from Almost Home, Inc. This acquisition enabled BHA to preserve the 120 unit complex as a permanent affordable housing project and therefore maintain a significant portion of the City’s affordable housing stock. BHA received overwhelming support from partners both locally and regionally to purchase the property. Over the last several years BHA has worked with Hendricks Communities, LLC, and their affiliated property management company, Terra Management, to strategically fulfill the original intent in acquiring the property. Rehabilitation activities are estimated to being in Fall 2023.
Adams Point is proposed to be a minimum 60-unit affordable housing and commercial development located on a 7.38-acre site at 1931 Bridge Street in Brighton. This project will increase BHA’s number of managed affordable housing units to over 500, nearly all of which were developed in the past 10 years. Adams County relocated its courthouse functions, leaving the Bridge Street site as an unoccupied surplus parcel. Recognizing the need for affordable housing, the Adams County Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved donating this valuable piece of land in 2022.
Acquisition of First Presbyterian Church
Since November of 2022, BHA has been seeking the acquisition of land currently owned by the First Presbyterian Church. BHA is in the process of securing ARPA funds for the acquisition of the 5.88 acres.
