Broadview Park Housing ProjectBroadview Park Housing Project
In response to the foot dragging by Portland city officials on the urgent need of affordable housing due to the influx of military related industry and basing personnel, the Federal Housing Authority of the Federal Works Agency ordered the construction of 550 units, of which 100 were built in Highland Park in South Portland. Designed by John Howard Stevens and John Calvin Stevens II, they featured Colonial Revival style, with a community center, school and playground.
