Broadway Communities is a locally, family operated business founded in 2003 to provide a safe, affordable, and comfortable home for the many wonderful residents of Columbia.
We know our hometown has no shortage of housing options. We may be a little biased, but we believe that 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 continues to provide for our family today!
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 per acre. We know that Grandpa Floyd Harley Smith would be proud that his hard work and persistence has allowed us to provide a home for those in our communities – Broadway Apartments, Lake Broadway Townhomes, and Stadium Apartments.
