The Housing Authority of the City of High Point received a HOPE VI demolition grant in 1998 to demolish Springfield Townhomes. All residents were relocated and the 198 public housing units were demolished in 1999.
A HOPE VI revitalization grant was awarded in 1999 to transform the former Springfield Townhomes site into the new Spring Brook Meadows community. The original plan contemplated building 125 homeownership units on the original site and 20 homeownership and 20 rental units off-site. The plan was later modified to provide for 44 on-site rental units for seniors, 118 on-site single family homeownership units and 250 off-site rental units. The $20,180,647 HOPE VI grant was leveraged with other public and private funds including low income housing tax credits and private financing to undertake the $60 million redevelopment program.
