Parcel 24 is a Central Artery surface parcel, formerly part of a the vibrant neighborhood of Chinatown. Its redevelopment created an opportunity to unite the a neighborhood, by creating desperately needed new affordable housing and acting as a new link to important resources now cut off by the highway. ACDC’s community process consisted of extensive public outreach and political action, resulting in public commitments for affordable housing. Preparatory financial modeling workshops and public meetings led to a one-day community design charrette, which included several innovative features: simultaneous multi-lingual translation, a user-friendly modeling process, and “real time” financial modeling.
