Housing Strategy

About the Strategy

The Sunset Area Transformation Plan’s Housing Strategy began with a vision of transforming the Sunset neighborhood by replacing the former distressed 100-unit Sunset Terrace public housing project with high-quality mixed income units.

So far, three replacement housing projects have been completed: Glenwood Townhomes, Kirkland Townhomes, and the Sunset Court Apartments. Additional housing projects are planned for on and around the Sunset Terrace site and will include a combination of new and rehabilitated, low-income and market rate units.

You can view the 2016 Housing Strategy Summary here. Not all projects in the 2016 Housing Strategy have funding, but many of them are being implemented as funding becomes available. Below are some of the current projects.
