Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA), its development partners and members of the community celebrated the grand opening of Creekview Plaza 49, a unique development offering independent rental housing for active adults aged 55 and older and retail opportunities at the same site, this Wednesday, August 10. The celebration began at 11:30 a.m. with welcoming remarks, followed by self-guided tours.
Located at 1400 Muldoon Road at the intersection with DeBarr Road, Creekview Plaza 49 is part of the Creekside Town Center, which offers neighborhood residents easy walkability to retail and services, along with plenty of opportunities for socializing and volunteering.
Nestled among Chester Creek and the Chugach Mountains, Creekview Plaza 49 is CIHA’s newest development. It accommodates those with low- and modest- household incomes and is fully accessible for residents who require those features.
Each apartment is located in one of two “sister” buildings, creating a community-like atmosphere. Creekside Town Center itself is designed with a mixture of retail and services in order to enhance residents’ sense of well-being among their peers while encouraging active participation in the Anchorage community.

“Creekview Plaza 49 consists of much more than just senior apartments. CIHA has created a meaningful community where active adults can live independently and where their contributions to the community are recognized and honored,” said Carol Gore, CIHA president and CEO. “Many of our residents have lived in Alaska for decades. They have raised families, grown successful businesses and continue to serve our community through volunteerism, mentorship and providing wisdom and guidance to younger generations. They deserve a safe, affordable home that allows them to live close to their families and the places that they helped create.”
Creekview Plaza 49 is located within walking distance of the eastside Fred Meyer, Walmart, Walgreens, Krispy Kreme, BurgerFi, BodyRenew and other retail outlets and services. It is located minutes from an extensive and well-maintained trail system and the planned Muldoon Town Square Park. Access to People Mover routes on Muldoon and Debarr make this location ideal for people who choose to use public transportation.

Creekview Plaza 49 offers both one- and two-bedroom units. Each apartment offers in-unit washers and dryers. The buildings have multiple common spaces that take advantage of the natural beauty of the location, with ample windows allowing for lots of natural light and views of the creek and mountains. The common areas are set up for residents to enjoy space outside of their apartments for socializing, reading or doing art projects.
CIHA’s partners in the development include R4 Capital, Northrim Bank, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC), The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Federal Home Loan Bank and Rasmuson Foundation. The architect is KPB Architects. Partners in the Creekside Town Center development include Cook Inlet Housing Authority, Mark Pfeffer, Jerry Neeser and Bob Petersen.
Cook Inlet Housing Authority’s mission is to create housing opportunities that empower our people and build our community.
