A redevelopment project for Hispanic Housing Development Corporation is the first phase of a three-phase project that will convert a derelict block of the city into a new cornerstone for the neighborhood. This phase utilized an existing vacant 4-story warehouse building. A portion of the rear of the building was demolished to create a new courtyard, and 24 apartments were created within the building, in a mix of one, two and three-bedroom affordable apartments for families.
The existing terra cotta facade of the building has been restored, contributing to the historic fabric of the surrounding area. This redevelopment brings much needed housing and new life to the community.
