The New Creighton Court Community


After a decade of visioning and planning, the redevelopment of the Creighton Court site is under way.
The redevelopment will transform the 504 Creighton Court units into a vibrant community with 600-700 units offering different levels of affordability. Plans for the new community are guided by extensive input from residents and East End stakeholders.

The new community will include townhouses, apartments, rental homes, and for-sale homes. It will bring new public spaces and amenities into the neighborhood, including a string of parks, green spaces and playgrounds, as well as a community center with programming for families and seniors.
