Common Ground provided financial consulting and master project management for Bremerton Housing Authority (BHA) to complete Kitsap County’s largest affordable-housing complex in recent memory.  The Bay Vista Hope VI redevelopment is on an 83-acre site of over 500 units of former World War II-era ship builder housing.  BHA will construct a total of 4 affordable rental housing projects at Bay Vista.  The Summit is the first consisting of 83 family rental units.  Bay Vista South is the second project consisting of 68 family rental units in 19 buildings.  Bay Vista West is the third, consisting of 69 family rental units in 20 buildings.  And the final project is the Bay Vista Senior Apartments with 70 senior rental housing units in 5 buildings.

Ultimately, the redeveloped community will have a total of roughly 800 affordable units, a mix of affordable and market homeownership and rental housing, retail commercial area to serve the local community, and an integrated network of open space and pedestrian corridors.  We provided strategic guidance and advice on overall development unit mix, product type, construction sequencing, and funding.
