Proposed Development


The overall neighborhood design provides a wide range of mixed-use amenities on Perry Street and South Park Ave connected by a network of richly landscaped tree-lined streets, including a new central park and a 105,000 SF Life Chances Center. THE BMHA-PCN project replaces 222 housing units with 495 mixed income units over five years; with a long term goal of 414 public housing units with approximately 415 mixed-income units over a period of ten years.
