Durham HA Announces $470 Million Development Plans to Include Mixed-income Housing, Retail and Office Space

Date Published: 
January 12th, 2022

From the Durham Housing Authority's press release:

The Durham Housing Authority (DHA) is excited to announce the selection of development partners on three downtown area sites. These three sites are the second phase of its DHA Downtown and Neighborhood Plan (DDNP). The sites combine for 37+ acres, including Fayette Place, currently vacant, Forest Hill Heights an existing public housing community, and the DHA offices and adjacent county land. 

The proposed mixed-use planning strategy across the sites collectively creates over 1,700 residential units and 135,000 sq. ft. of non-residential space, including a new administrative office for DHA. More importantly, the proposed developments will create nearly 900 units of affordable housing ranging from 30-80% of the Area Median Income, a primary goal of DHA. "The preservation and creation of additional affordable housing units were paramount in redeveloping these sites. The proposals more than exceed the original targets that we established in the DDNP," said DHA CEO Anthony Scott.
