Colorful mix of new housing, additions and renovations create a cohesive neighborhood at Eastview Town Homes

Managed by the Housing Authority of New Haven, Connecticut, Eastview Terrace is located in the Fair Haven Heights area of the city, near the Quinnipiac River and the border with East Haven.

The former Eastview Terrace Housing Development was designed as quintessential 1940s “barracks-style” brick linear structures.  The original layout of the neighborhood created limited visibility at unit entrances, resulting in substantial security problems.  The structures were in a state of significant disrepair, and hazardous materials were present.  Furthermore, the buildings were bland and monotonous with little or no differentiation between individual townhomes.

Kenneth Boroson Architects was retained to provide HANH with various options to mitigate these issues.  The project is being completed in multiple phases.

During the Master Planning Phase, the budget determined that not all units could be demolished, requiring that some be renovated.  Our firm provided the Housing Authority with a revised site plan for the entire 20.8-acre parcel that strategically removed some of the buildings to increase sight lines and improve security.
