The Building and Grounds


OFFICE HOURS: Monday - Friday, 8AM - 5PM / other times by appointment

The Brighton is set back from the street, and there is ample free parking. The park-like grounds include a grassy park, rose gardens, and a P-Patch-style garden with raised beds for interested residents to plant as they choose. In 2012, we added a greenhouse.

Prompt maintenance, continual improvement of the building, building systems, and the grounds is a top priority of the board, management and staff of The Brighton.

The "X"-shaped building, built in the late 1960s, has five stories and four wings. Most units have balconies or patios, and large windows. One, two, two-bedroom plus den units, and laundry facilities are located on the lower level, first, second and third floors. One bedroom units have one bathroom. Two and two-bedroom plus den units have two bathrooms. All floors are served by elevators and stairs.

The building has a controlled access entry and state-of- the-art digital security system.

The top floor is home to the Penthouse, a large, pleasant meeting space with a kitchen and restrooms. This space is used for meetings, classes and social events, and can be rented by residents and community members for parties and gatherings.
