Beatty Development Group and Henson Development Co. have been selected as the development team to redevelop the Oldtown Mall. The developers proactively reached out to the Oldtown Development Team, facilitated by the Ingoma Foundation, to engage with the community, and have committed to remaining actively engaged as the plans for redevelopment are developed. Ingoma and its partners in the Change 4 Real Community Corporation, Brown Craig Turner Architecture Firm, the Douglass Homes and Somerset Tenant Councils and Sojourner Douglass College are committed to ensure that the new construction in Oldtown will honor the collaboratively-developed Oldtown Redevelopment Plan, which issues a new era of “holistic-development” which ensures that existing residents share in the economic and social development that is spawned by the project, and sustainable jobs and community-owned enterprises are created through the process.
The community has evolved it’s vision of the development with the support of Brown Craig Turner Architects outlined in the summary presentation below:
We have collaboratively developed a plan for development in Oldtown that will create new pathways for current Oldtown residents to start businesses and rent or buy homes RIGHT HERE IN OLDTOWN . Thank you to the community leaders who have remained committed throughout the 9-year planning process, and the Youth Unlocked Youth who have taken leadership in the last two years to ensure the future of their community. Now is the time to engage in the finalization of the plans, and the future of Oldtown. Stay tuned for announcements about upcoming scheduled Change 4 Real meetings.
