While a neighborhood's "soul" is essentially the people that make up the community, the physical commercial, residential, and cultural components may be considered the "body". The Real Estate development efforts of the Hill CDC are focused on saving the existing assets that link back to the venerated past while developing new "bricks & mortar" to reweave the fabric of the neighborhood. At the same time, this development work strives to balance the improvements with measures to prevent displacement.
There is no question that the Hill District has suffered from disinvestment and neglect. Over the past few decades, many structures have been torn down or stand abandoned. Our work is to rehabilitate those buildings that may be preserved and put them back into use. We follow the Greater Hill District Master Plan's goals to revitalize the Commercial Core and to foster greater housing opportunities for affordable homeownership and quality rental apartments.
