Our Experience


Founded in 1980, the Historic District Development Corporation (HDDC) created guiding principles to insure that the development process that occurred was true to what the neighborhood had been. Included in those guiding principles was a strong statement regarding non-displacement of existing residents, the preservation of the neighborhood's historic character and redevelopment that would restore the neighborhood as mixed-income.

Since the early 1990s, HDDC has been using a block-by-block development strategy; building new homes on vacant lots on the same streets where it rehabbed existing dilapidated structures. In the late 1990s and into the 2000s, HDDC began developing large multifamily and mixed-use developments in strategic locations to spark redevelopment throughout the neighborhood. Since its inception, HDDC has constructed hundreds of units of housing and thousands of square feet of commercial space that have been a catalyst to the revitalization of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic District.
