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.

Project Updates/Next Steps

timeline of hillside master plan


The Hillside Park Redevelopment project is currently in 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 selected Related Northwest as lead development partner to oversee and manage the redevelopment of Hillside Park. In September, the Housing Authority and Related NW entered into an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement. HACC and Related NW are working through final contract negotiations and pre-development planning.

On September 27, 2022, HACC submitted a Section 18 Disposition application to HUD. On June 26, 2023, HACC received approval from HUD authorizing the disposition of the identified public housing units in order to develop new housing. Once the Section 8 Tenant Protection Vouchers (TPVs) have been issued by HUD, residents will begin the relocation process with guidance and assistance from the Housing Authority and its 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 unit. 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 Hillside once the newly developed housing is complete.

Approximate Redevelopment Timeline

  • Disposition approval received from HUD on June 26, 2023
  • Tenant relocation is estimated to start in early Fall 2023
  • Demolition and construction is estimated to begin in mid-2024
  • Construction of the 3 buildings, totaling 275 units, will take approximately 24 months to complete – completion is estimated in Spring 2026
