Over 90 area residents gathered at Greater Grant Memorial AME Church, located to learn more about the housing development project called “Gilchrist Crossing.”  Hosted by The Greater Community Development Corporation, the meeting unveiled plans to develop a new affordable housing community will feature forty plus townhome units with two or three bedrooms and two baths. This development will be a build-to-rent-to-own community, empowering individuals to experience homeownership and legacy wealth building.

It will provide modern affordable workforce housing in north Jacksonville, especially the Sherwood Forest community. This development also helps to underscore the concept of the church faith institutions-building community. Featured Presenters included Reverend Micah C. T. Sims, Sr. – Senior Pastor of Greater Grant Memorial AME Church & Board Chair of Greater Community Development Corporation, Dr. Irv Cohen – CEO of LISC Jacksonville, State Rep. Angie Nixon – elected representative of the 14th Legislative District Florida House, Thom Liggett – Operating Partner of Performance Capital Partners, and Mario J. Payne, CFP – TOAMS Financial and senior management of Corner Lot Development. The development is slated to be completed in 2024.
