Parkside Redevelopment

The Villages at Parkside is a 52-acre public housing project on the east side of Detroit. Parkside is located at the northeast corner of E Warren Ave and Conner St, and is located immediately across the street from the historic Chandler Park. DHC is partnering with Ginosko Development Company to redevelop Parkside as a new residential community with a broad mix of housing options across several affordable income ranges. Part of the project involves converting Parkside from Low Income Public Housing (Section 9) funding to Section 8 funding, which is more stable and predictable. This will happen through a HUD program called RAD, which stands for Rental Assistance Demonstration.  

DHC and Ginosko want residents and stakeholders to understand fully what will happen at the property. The project team strongly encourages any residents and stakeholders with questions about the project to submit them to –or alternatively, residents can reach out to the Resident Representatives for help submitting questions.  

Please browse the material below to understand this redevelopment effort and to learn about about ongoing community engagement. Please note that DHC and Ginosko plan to hold several community engagement events at Parkside for this project. Some of the meetings are required as part of the RAD program, but several meetings are being held with the primary goal of keeping residents up-to-date. 

A binder is available in the lobby of the community center for residents to review RAD-related information, including the Resident Information Notice (RIN) and General Information Notice (GIN). Additionally, we strongly encourage residents to review the RAD Fact Sheets available on the HUD website. For instance, Fact Sheet #9 has useful information on RAD and Relocation.
