Developed by Dakota Partners, Inc., Brookside Terrace provides 96 units of affordable rental housing spread throughout four, 3-story garden-style residential buildings. A single-story clubhouse and playground are also located on the property, which is set back from South County Trail. Developed in two phases, each phase consisted of two  buildings and 48 units. The development was designed and built to Passive House standards, which utilizes super insulation, airtight building envelope and heat-recovery ventilation systems to reduce overall energy consumption. Funding came from a variety of funding sources, including a RIHousing mortgage, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) equity, federal Housing Trust Fund program, HOME Program funding, and the Zero Energy for the Ocean State (ZEOS) program.
