In 1996 the City purchased and land banked this site in anticipation of ARHA’s submission of a HOPE VI grant. In 1998, ARHA was successful in its bid for HOPE VI funds and this site was built out. The 18 new units built in the South Reynolds Street neighborhood replaced part of those displaced for the redevelopment of another public housing site into the Chatham Square community. The community houses 18 families in two different home styles. Two rows, each with six townhomes, share the development site with a three-story walk-up that includes six apartments of which two are constructed to accommodate persons with special needs. The community embraces the mixed-income principle by virtue of the fact that it is nestled in a larger, established condominium community.
