A substantial redevelopment project within a comprehensive master plan by Solomon/Mithun Architects, this new neighborhood replaces extremely degraded public housing with modern family homes, reconnected roadways, and restored view corridors.
Hunters View Blocks 7 & 11—Phase II of the overall development—includes 107 affordable family homes in six buildings on two steeply sloped city blocks. In collaboration, DBA and Paulett Taggart Architects took a creative approach to the two development lots, integrating the sites as one to strategically distribute density and create a fine-grained community with a sense of organic diversity.
The project incorporates one-for-one replacement of the previous homes, plus additional much-needed housing on the one-acre site. Of the 107 new homes, which range from one- to four-bedroom, 80 were reserved for existing tenants at Hunters View and those on the Housing Authority waiting list.
