Fayetteville Metropolitan Housing Authority (FMHA)
A $20 million HOPE VI Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has allowed the Fayetteville Metropolitan Housing Authority (FMHA) to redevelop the Old Wilmington Road area with nearly 750 new low-income, workforce and market rate housing units.
The project is an opportunity for downtown revitalization and will help bring 3,000 new people to live downtown, many of whom will be younger families. The project and subsequent private development will build more than 850 new housing units including apartments, single family homes, elderly housing, and townhouses.
The revitalization is integral to Fayetteville's Downtown Renaissance, which calls for preservation of the City's historical heritage. The site design combines semi-urban residential layouts with community gardens. Also included is a proposed business park and a segment of the Blounts Creek Trail.
