Broadway Communities is a family business that was founded in 2003 to provide a home for the hard-working residents of Columbia.
We know our hometown has no shortage of housing options. We may be a little biased, but we feel Broadway Communities is a cut above the rest. We know you’ll feel the same way after experiencing the welcoming community atmosphere created by the staff and residents of our apartments and townhomes.
Broadway Communities was financed through the inheritance of our late Grandpa Smith’s farm land. This farmland provided for Smith and his family, and now continues to provide for our family- The Kirtley’s.
Smith came to Missouri on the orphan train from New York in 1910. He was never officially adopted but was taken in by the Sydner family from the age of 11 to 18. He took advantage of a government program that allowed him to acquire 160 acres at a dollar an acre. We feel Grandpa Floyd Harley Smith would be proud that hard work and persistence allows us to provide homes for others in our two communities – Broadway Apartments and Lake Broadway Townhomes.
