Two long-standing local non-profit organizations, First Covenant Church and Community Housing Development Corporation (CHDC), are working together to develop workforce housing tailored to individuals and families who work in the downtown core of Minneapolis at employers such as HCMC, Wells Fargo, and North Central University. The new construction development will provide high-quality housing and commercial space focused on a well-respected social service provider. It will expand the current diverse uses and programs provided within the existing First Covenant Church facility which is home to such community assets as MetroKids Early Childhood Education Center and a homeless shelter staffed by St. Stevens Human Services. The project has two primary components: 169 units of affordable housing and structured parking with 188 stalls. The proposed CHDC Workforce Housing development will provide affordable housing (50 & 60% Area Median Income) in a new 6-story building located on an existing surface parking lot.
