Real Estate Development

NKCDC brings life to abandoned buildings by providing affordable housing to first-time homebuyers, converting old factories to new uses, and collaborating with city, state and federal agencies on brownfield redevelopment.

Awesometown—Moyer St Townhomes

In 2016 Awesometown became the first LEED V4 Homes Platinum Certified project in Pennsylvania. NKCDC partnered with Postgreen Homes to redevelop a former industrial site into a unique mixed-income residential development of 14 sustainable townhomes. Ten townhomes were sold at market rate by Postgreen Homes; four were subsidized and sold to qualifying income-eligible homebuyers through NKCDC.

Coral Street Arts House

Coral Street Arts House was a textile mill at 2446-2468 Coral St that sat vacant for decades. Today, after a $7.5 million renovation, the building provides 27 units of affordable live-work space for artists and their families. Part of an NKCDC strategy for community improvement through investment in the arts, the Arts House spurred rehabilitation of other vacant industrial buildings in the neighborhood.

Orinoka Civic House

Through partnerships with community residents NKCDC completed the North of Lehigh Neighborhood Revitalization Plan in 2014. As part of that plan, NKCDC is transforming an abandoned factory near Somerset Station into a 51-unit apartment complex with commercial and community spaces. NKCDC will move its main office to the new Orinoka Civic House in 2017. Learn more.
