YWCA's Affordable Housing Development
A Groundbreaking Opportunity for Good
YWCA Central Carolinas and DreamKey Partners (formerly Charlotte-Mecklenburg Housing Partnership) are proud to be transforming the front lawn of our 10-acre property on Park Road into 80+ affordable housing units. These units will be reserved for households earning 30% – 60% area median income – between $28,250 and $56,520 for a family of four. They are desperately needed as one solution to Charlotte’s ever-growing affordable housing crisis, which has been intensified by the increase in homelessness throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
In July of 2020, we received the unanimous approval from Charlotte’s City Council for the rezoning of our property. We are currently focusing on fully fleshing out the architectural, landscaping and front facade details. We plan to break ground for this affordable housing development in 2022. And we expect these beautiful new units will be move-in ready for their first tenants in 2025. For more information on what the units will look like, view our Grounds For Change brochure.
