Hillside Park Redevelopment

The Hillside Master Plan was developed with grant-funds to envision the future of the 16-acre Hillside public housing community. The planning process engaged residents and community members, who helped develop a plan for a vibrant mixed-use, mixed-income community. The design preserves and rebuilds existing affordable housing at the site, while creating opportunities for expanded housing choice and type.

Final Plat – Phase 1 Pre-Development

The Hillside Park Redevelopment project is currently in Final Plat - Phase 1 – Predevelopment.

In early 2022, HACC released a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) seeking conceptual proposals from developers for the redevelopment for Hillside Park. After a robust and competitive process, the Housing Authority has selected Related NW as the lead development team to oversee and manage the redevelopment of Hillside Park. In September, the Housing Authority and Related NW entered into an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement and we are currently working through contract negotiations and Phase 1 planning.

On Sept. 27, 2022, HACC submitted a Section 18 Disposition application to HUD. Upon approval, HUD authorizes the disposition of the existing units in order to develop new housing. Once disposition is approved, residents residing in Phase 1 will begin the relocation process with guidance and assistance from the Housing Authority and our relocation consultants. All residents will be given the option to relocate with either a Tenant Protection Voucher or to move into another
available Housing Authority home. HACC and the relocation team will work with all residents to relocate to new homes. All relocated residents will be given the option to return to a newly developed home once complete.

Approximate Redevelopment Timeline

  • Disposition approval from HUD is estimated in or around February 2023
  • Phase 1 tenant relocation is estimated to start in May 2023
  • Phase 1 demolition and construction is estimated to begin in early 2024
  • Construction of Phase 1 (3 buildings, totaling 275 units) will take approximately 24 months to complete - completion of Phase 1 is estimated in February 2026
  • The 100-unit building that will be owned by the Housing Authority will be completed before the other two buildings (estimated fall 2025). We hope to start relocating Hillside Park residents who want to live in the new building as soon as it is opens.
  • The goal is to begin construction of Phase 2 (~225 units) as soon the relocation of Phase 2 residents is complete. Phase 2 relocation is estimated to begin mid-2025.
