For the first time in 60 years, new high-quality rentals are coming to the Douglass/Sumner neighborhood.
Prairie Fire Development Group and CHWC are working together to construct 50 units of high-quality, mixed-income housing at the corner of Washington and 8th Street. The title of the project is Boulevard Lofts.
Residents hope Boulevard Lofts will revitalize the community, bringing more new investment to the area. Throughout the process, CHWC has worked closely with partners like the Douglass/Sumner Neighborhood Association to make sure the project honors residents’ needs.
Since the beginning, this project has been focused on the intersection of health and housing. Neighborhood leaders and partners like CHWC will work together to build an urban garden next to the development. Similarly, CHWC and its partners plan to scale up health programs like those found at CHWC’s Splitlog Farm to serve the Douglass/Sumner neighborhood.
