Brookside Housing Development

Mixed-income housing designed in five New Haven time-honored styles create a memorable new neighborhood at Brookside

In 2006, the Housing Authority’s preferred developer, Michaels Development Company, retained Kenneth Boroson Architects to create 222 newly-constructed apartments and a management building.  The new development includes all new roads and utilities and incorporates a completely new street grid to ensure a “walkable, safe” area.  It also reconnects the community to its neighbors in Hamden and surrounding areas.  All units have direct entrances to the street, and inclusion of porches and covered entries contribute to a sense of safety and security. 

The Brookside neighborhood is located in the northwest corner of New Haven, Connecticut, near the town of Hamden. West Rock Ridge State Park and Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) are prominent local landmarks.
