Southside Neighborhood Revitalization

The Southside neighborhood, a 10-acre revitalization project, is one of Greensboro’s first significant mixed-use, infill projects.  Key to its success was transforming Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard—which previously cut the neighborhood in half—into a pedestrian friendly “grand urban boulevard” that knits the community together.  The project also includes a centralized neighborhood park, 30 single-family homes, 10 two-family homes, 50 townhouses, 10 restored historic homes, and 20 live/work units.  Demonstrating this project’s success, tax revenues generated by the neighborhood grew from the predevelopment average of $400,000 to over $10 million.  The project also won the EPA’s 2004 Built Projects Smart Growth Achievement Award.
