Quality affordable housing is the foundation of the opportunity strategy, and the engine that drives the Perry Choice Neighborhood Planning Initiative.  To implement this planning approach, LEED Housing and Neighborhood Development Strategies will be used to guide the development of housing in the Commodore Perry Community. The emphasis will be on redeveloping and replacing 414 units of distressed public housing using the highest level of quality, energy efficiency and architectural design to meet the contemporary needs of the residents. To ensure that residents have a voice in the design of the housing units, monthly workshops are being held to provide them with continuous input into the planning process. The goal is to transform the Commodore Perry into a mixed income commuity with a combination of affordable income, including market rate and public housing units.  By producing a new mix of high quality housing, a variety of families will be attracted to the area to join with the current residents in growing and developing the community.

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.
