Briggsdale Apartments II is a newly-constructed housing credit development, which includes 40 one-bedroom units of permanent supportive housing, located on the southwest side of Columbus. The development is an expansion of the owner's Briggsdale Apartments I, a 35-unit Permanent Supportive Housing development that was opened in 2006. Briggsdale II provides an environment that supports recovery and housing retention to individuals who struggle with homelessness, mental illness and/or addiction.
All 40 units in Briggsdale Apartments II are designated for those with special needs. Of the 40 units in the development, 32 are reserved for homeless individuals, and eight are for non-homeless individuals. These eight units are set aside for Franklin County Board ADAMH clients. All units have rental assistance. Resident amenities include a basketball court, art therapy, health monitoring, bicycle storage and unit furnishings. The development is close to services and is on a bus line that offers several stops per day.
