Slavik and Premier, through their affiliate, Scripps Park Associates, LLC, were selected by the Detroit Housing Commission to redevelop one of its public housing projects, Jeffries Homes, under HUD’s HOPE VI program. It resulted in the demolition of over 2,000 units and the new construction of 327 replacement affordable family rental units, 100 affordable senior assisted living units and 60 for-sale homes. The development team utilized a coordinated effort in planning the development that included several resident meetings, neighborhood charrettes and Housing Commission involvement, in addition to the selection of a talented group of urban planners, engineers and architects. The development team successfully processed 6 separate tax credit applications for the 327 replacement rental units. Construction commenced on the first phase in 2003 and construction was completed on the last phase in 2014. Total development costs were approximately $54,000,000 and funding sources included HOPE VI loans, Brownfield credits, HOME loans, FHA insured first mortgage loans and low income housing tax credits.
