Mid City Project - Completed

Between 1994 and 1997, GSECDC undertook the Mid City Project, a scattered site low income rental housing development that utilized over $11.4 million in Tax Credits to redevelop 44 scattered site vacant lots in a 10 block radius for 88 rental units of low income housing in the Greenville area of Jersey City.  This scattered site effort was a major force in stabilizing the neighborhood and encouraging new development.
