The $76 million Willow Oaks Revitalization Project, a public-private partnership sponsored by the Greensboro Housing Authority and the City of Greensboro, transformed the obsolete Morningside Homes and the surrounding Lincoln Grove area into a vibrant, mixed-income, mixed tenure, mixed-use community of choice.

Willow Oaks StreetscapeThe planning process for this new community brought together more than 50 entities, including the City, GHA, lead developer Mid-City Urban, LLC, public housing and community residents, neighborhood activists, local non-profit and for-profit builders, Bennett College, NC A&T State University, and a host of service providers.

A comprehensive redevelopment plan was adopted in July 2000. (See link below.)

Willow Oaks represents the best planning practices for the 21st century. A mixed-income resident base has created the foundation for the new community. Rental and owner-occupied units appeal to a wide spectrum of income levels. A mixed-use land plan mingles single family and attached housing throughout the neighborhood. Block-faces have a seamless look, regardless of whether units are rented or owner-occupied.

Willow Oaks Award HousePhase I housing construction is essentially complete. About 210 units of the multi-family are leased with waiting lists. Construction of the community / childcare building is complete.
