Affordable Housing

What makes Unity Park unique is the City's commitment to inclusivity and equitable development.

The City land-banked eight acres of prime land on Southernside streets near Unity Park for affordable, workforce and senior housing. This land is valued at $8 million. The City also created the Unity Park Character Code in 2020 to incentivize affordable housing development within the park area and nearby neighborhoods.

With guidance from the Southernside residents, the Greenville Housing Fund and the City have mapped out a plan for the surrounding streets - one that envisions a vibrant, sustainable and complementary mixed-income neighborhood that is reflective of the entire community.

Additionally, private developers have projects underway - many with an affordable housing component.
