Korean church developers host open house in New Brighton

In the Community

At Hanson Park on Oct. 25, housing developers Dominum and Pulte invited neighbors of the city-owned former Korean United Methodist Church site for an open house to talk about potential development.

The site, which the city bought for $1.9 million, is located in the 700 block of Eighth Avenue NW. The developers wanted feedback on a hybrid housing project that would bring over 300 affordable senior and family housing units, along with townhomes. 

Since a city staff team-building retreat in January, New Brighton has been in contact with developers interested in the redevelopment of the church site. 

The New Brighton Economic Development Commission in May narrowed its preferences for development, approving discussions with developers that can specifically deliver a hybrid project of both owner-occupied townhomes and affordable rentals.
