The Heights at Darien

Transformed from the Allen- O’Neill Homes, The Heights at Darien is an affordable apartment community developed in partnership with the Darien Housing Authority. Completed in 2014, and located on 10+ acres in Darien, The Heights offers renters modern apartment living close to all that Darien has to offer. Consisting of 106 high quality apartments and town houses, the development offers a community room with a business center, on- site management offices and an entertainment area for residents to enjoy. There is a mix of income restricted one, two, and three bedroom dwellings.

Old Town Hall Houses

Old Town Hall Houses ("OTHH") was developed by DHA in 1988 through the use of the State of Connecticut Elderly Housing Program. The thirty (30) effeciency and one-bedroom units are restricted to lower-income elderly and disabled households and individuals.  In addition, DHA owns two affordable single family residences at 216 and 218 West Avenue.  DHA continually maintains and upgrades the facilities with funds it has reserved for that purpose.  The day-to-day management of OTHH is contracted to Imagineers, LLC.

Waiting lists for both The Heights and OTHH are currently closed.
