Stuart Parker Apartments Dedication and Community Open House


Columbia, Missouri – October 5, 2017:  The Columbia Housing Authority (CHA) is pleased to welcome the community to tour the newly renovated Stuart Parker Apartments and join us for a dedication ceremony on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 from 4:00-6:00 p.m.  The ceremony will be held in Unity Park.  The entrance to the park is adjacent to 205 Unity Drive.  Parking is available on Unity Drive, Oak Street, Lincoln Drive, and McBaine Avenue.  Carpooling is encouraged.  A program will be offered at 5:00 p.m.

The renovation of the Stuart Parker Apartments is the first completed phase of the Columbia Housing Authority’s process of renovating all 716 units of public housing in Columbia.  The renovation of Paquin Tower was also included in this project.

The 84 townhomes and garden style apartments of the Stuart Parker Apartments are the oldest public housing stock in Columbia.  The apartments were constructed in 1958 two years after the CHA was formed.  Part of the location of the apartments (now Lincoln Drive) was the football field for the Douglass High School Bulldogs football team.
