Winston-Salem: Cleveland Avenue Homes

The North East Winston-Salem (“Newside”) Transformation Plan presents a rare opportunity to reconnect a community that was artificially divided by urban renewal programs, highway building, and systemic racial and economic segregation. With the award of a $30 million Choice Neighborhoods
Implementation Grant, the Housing Authority of the City of Winston-Salem, the City, and their partners will work to connect the two sides of Newside, building on the strengths of each to meet the deficiencies of the other. Central to this plan is the redevelopment of Cleveland Avenue Homes – a 199-unit distressed public housing site. Cleveland Avenue Homes will be replaced with 406 new mixed-income housing units available to a broad range of incomes. Residents of Cleveland Avenue Homes will be further supported with connections to an array of educational opportunities, proven employment programs, and a network of medical providers. The Choice Neighborhoods Plan will further benefit from the partnership and investments from Winston-Salem State University, a local HBCU.
