HOPE VI Revitalization
The redevelopment of the Old
Wilmington Road neighborhood
as a HOPE VI initiative will:
- Revitalize a marginalized community replacing the existing 249 distressed public housing units and obsolete infrastructure with 747 new mixed-income rental units and homeownership dwellings, providing new housing opportunities for disadvantaged persons on seven key sites.
- Provide Community and Supportive Services to former residents of the Delona Gardens and Campbell Terrace communities, including child care, case management and job training.
- Locate 105 homeownership and 570 rental units throughout the Old Wilmington Road neighborhood as well as 72 off-site units.
- Create a market demand for further development and revitalization in the Old Wilmington Road neighborhood
