Melwood and Affordable Housing

Melwood Industries has proposed to the County a Tier 1 review of a proposal to build on its current vacant lot at 750 S 23rd Street.  This would be a state‐of‐the‐art mixed‐use building that:

  • Provides a home for Melwood programming, particularly workforce development programming:
  • Provides affordable housing inclusive of people with disabilities; and
  • Creates a communal space for the 22202 neighborhood and people with
  • disabilities

Livability22202 has advocated for more affordable housing and believes this would be a worthwhile study.  Tier 1 only would give approval for a more indepth review under Tier 2.  The CCCA will invite Melwood to present when/if the study goes to Tier 2.  See the initial Melwood proposal presented to the AHCA meeting January 12.
