Beacon Park Townhomes

The Beacon Park Townhomes were fully leased and had a long waiting list before completion of construction in 2011. The development is located at 26th and Paseo Boulevard, within minutes of downtown Kansas City, Hospital Hill and Crown Center. Beacon Park Townhomes brings more than 105 new residents to the historic Beacon Hill neighborhood. The development includes a combination of public housing, low-income housing tax credit, and market-rate apartments.

The Beacon Park Townhomes were conceived in partnership with the Paseo Baptist Church, and in consultation with the Beacon Hill Homeowners Association. The energy—efficient design conforms to the architectural standards for the Beacon Hill redevelopment district. After receiving a 2009 Low-Income Housing Tax Credit allocation for Beacon Park, the Housing Authority selected The Michaels Organization, on a competitive basis, to serve as the developer and manager of the new townhouse community.

There are 45 two- and three-bedroom units at Beacon Park, some with full basements and garages. All have fully equipped kitchens with Energy Star appliances including a washer and dryer.  Beacon Park provides a community center with an activity room, kitchen, and computer room. It is staffed by a Supportive Services Coordinator who organizes services and activities for residents, including an after-school program for kids.
