Vacant to Vibrant


 

The common narrative of our neighborhood histories has been one of declining populations, disinvestment and decay beginning in the 1950s. As you can see today, abandoned homes and vacant lots pockmark the landscape. V2V’s goal is equitable redevelopment of our neighborhoods.

The Phillips Collective


A cradle-to-college education pipeline + mixed income housing + new resources and services + community quarterback = a transformed neighborhood. That’s the successful formula used by Atlanta-based Purpose Built Communities to revitalize a blighted Atlanta neighborhood, and it’s the model adopted by the Urban Neighborhood Initiative, the community quarterback for the Phillips Collective (formally called the Wendell Phillips Neighborhood Initiative).

Kansas City Catalytic Urban Redevelopment


UNI is partnering with the City of Kansas City, LISC and the Mid America Regional Council in this effort that focuses on commercial development within the UNI. Through a systematic analysis, 13 areas were winnowed to three priority areas: Troost at 31st, Prospect at 31st and Ivanhoe on 39th Street. UNI is the implementing agency that is charged with pushing development to these areas. Importantly, KCUR partners are seeking investors to create a patient capital pool of $25 to $40 million.
