The HOPE VI revitalization plan called for the demolition of 498 units of existing housing and the construction of approximately 425 units of new, mixed-income housing on the site including 100 units of home ownership housing. The HOPE VI plan also included an off-site component, necessary to meet the minimum one-for-one replacement of the demolished affordable units currently existing at Tonomy Hill.
Phase I resulted in the creation of 81 units of mixed-income housing. The newly constructed units are housed in a variety of building types. The goal of Phase I was to completely redesign the site in order to better integrate with the surrounding residential neighborhoods. Phase II created 147 units of mixed-income housing. Phase III created 71 units. Phase IV created 37 rental units and 7 home ownership units. Phase V will create 82 home ownership units.
The redevelopment has been designed so that buildings will be configured to frame the streets and create clearly defined spaces for the residents, while also creating a sense of community indistinguishable from the private residential areas that surround Tonomy Hill.
Phases V is currently in the construction phase.
