News & Information
The Raleigh Housing Authority (“RHA”) owns and operates the Heritage Park community located in downtown Raleigh and bordered by W. South Street, S. Saunders Street and Western Boulevard. Situated on 11.61 acres, Heritage Park currently consisting of 122 residential units built in two phases in 1975. The Heritage Park community has reached functional obsolescence and RHA has an opportunity to rebuild the community to better serve low- to moderate-income families with new energy efficient, more spacious and modern apartments.
RHA is exploring redeveloping the Heritage Park community and has begun the process of conceptualizing the future of affordable housing on this site. It is RHA’s intent to redevelop the Heritage Park community in order to continue to provide affordable housing at this property. RHA believes that this redevelopment is much needed at this time as Raleigh’s affordable housing crisis is on the rise.
Planning is in the early stages and redevelopment is not imminent. News and information will be provided here as this process continues. RHA may request rezoning of this site in order to redevelop this community with greater density, thus offering more affordable housing choices to the residents of the City of Raleigh. Additionally, RHA may consider redeveloping as an opportunity to include mixed use spaces at the redeveloped site.
RHA values resident feedback and has been engaging the community to ensure each resident has an opportunity to provide their valued insight. It is RHA’s hope that resident conversations will provide a foundation for rebuilding Heritage Park in a way that benefits all involved. Conversations will continue to be held as we move forward. Residents are urged to continue complying with all parts of the Lease Agreement and should not begin preparing for relocation until written notification from RHA to do so is received.
