Newport News, VA
Dakota Partners established its presence in the Mid-Atlantic market by transforming a 5.2-acre site in Newport News, consisting of five contiguous lots, into Huntington Village. This much needed mixed-income, multi-family residential community fills a void of new and desirable affordable housing for the area.
Comprised of four 3-story garden-style buildings, Huntington Village features 96 spacious, open-concept apartments that are ideally suited for families. It was designed and constructed to be Earthcraft gold certified, which addresses a wide range of sustainability considerations, including environmental performance, indoor air quality, building durability, comfort, and affordability. Located steps from public transportation, residents have easy access to area shopping, entertainment, and amenities. The development also features a community building with shared spaces including a gathering area, fitness center, on-site laundry facilities and a playground.
Over the past several years, Newport News has invested heavily to improve infrastructure in this area. The completion of Huntington Village supports this important revitalization and offers much needed affordable housing for the growing population.
Construction commenced in early 2019. Residents began moving into their new homes in late 2021.
Total Development Costs: $17.3 million
Financing Partners: Virginia Housing Development Agency (VHDA), Virginia DHCD, Blue Hub Capital, Wells Fargo, Newport News Redevelopment and Housing Authority
