The Campello High Rise
Campello High-Rise Revitalization
The Campello High-Rise is comprised of 398 apartments for senior and non-senior disabled residents in two 10-story buildings on Main Street in Brockton. Last Autumn, the Brockton Housing Authority (BHA) received approval to convert Campello High-Rise from the Federal Public Housing program to the Section 8 Project-Based Voucher program. This switch will increase the amount of money the BHA will receive to operate the Campello allowing it to make meaningful improvements while keeping the development in the control of the BHA and at the current affordability levels. BHA is currently planning for the comprehensive revitalization of Campello Hi-Rise which is one of the most critical affordable housing resource for senior and non-senior disabled residents in Brockton. The building itself celebrates its 50-year anniversary in 2022; unfortunately, the building has not aged well and to date, the annual funds allotted by HUD to the BHA have not been able to keep pace with the capital and systemic needs of the building. The BHA has hired Dietz & Company Architects, to guide the assessment of the existing building and to lead the process for determining the best plan forward for the revitalization project. All residents have been notified and kept up to date in their preferred language; resident meetings will be held as information becomes available and as prudent given pandemic conditions.
Construction is currently scheduled to begin in 2023.
