ANCHORAGE—Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA) opened a new family-oriented housing complex in Anchorage’s Mountain View neighborhood. Ch’anikna Commons features twenty-one townhouse-style apartments, the latest development in CIHA’s decade-long revitalization of the north Anchorage community.

Ch’anikna (pronounced cha-NEEK-nuh) is the outer Dena’ina region word for “my children,” appropriate for a complex designed to provide a positive environment for families. Residents will enjoy onsite landscaped courtyards and easy access to the William B. Lyons Park and the Mountain View Community Center, home of the Mountain View Boys and Girls Club.

Ch’anikna Commons features one and three-bedroom townhouse-style apartments ranging from 521 to 1,726 square feet. Partners with CIHA in the complex include Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC), Anchorage Community Land Trust, Federal Home Loan Bank Des Moines, Mountain View Boys and Girls Club, Mountain View Community Council, Municipality of Anchorage, Northrim Bank, R4 Capital, Rasmuson Foundation, US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and Wells Fargo.

“This block long revitalization work is the result of the tremendous vision and collaboration among all of our partners,” said Carol Gore, CEO of CIHA. “It includes renovations and upgrades to the Mountain View Community Center and the adjacent William B Lyons Park. When we come together like this to support and stabilize families, the neighborhood of Mountain View and the community of Anchorage benefit.”

Not only because they received numerous accolades and marketing awards for the campaign but because, at the time, it was rare for Alaska Native corporations to market themselves through the media.
