Summary

The Compass Broadview project takes a church parking lot and builds a multifamily community upon it, providing housing to families leaving homelessness. More than half of the building’s 59 homes will be two- and three-bedroom units. 30 units will be affordable to households at or below 30% of area median income (AMI), with the rest affordable to households at or below 50% AMI. Compass Housing Alliance plans to own the building for at least 75 years, and our team focused on creating the highest quality, most durable product on a tight budget. To help foster community, the building features a common room, theater, and craft room. An outdoor play space in the building’s courtyard spills out into a woonerf shared with the adjacent Luther Memorial Church.
