A long-vacant rowhome and two adjacent vacant lots offer Mt. Vernon Manor Community Development Corporation (CDC) the opportunity to combine new CDC offices and community space with affordable housing options. A recessed “front porch” and glass storefront will draw residents into the CDC’s offices, which include community flex space and a community room accommodating 100. A separate entrance with an elevator makes the affordable apartments above accessible. A renovated rowhome next door provides another affordable housing choice.
