1991: JPNDC begins to target the primarily Latino and African-American Hyde/Jackson neighborhood, following several gang-related killings, for major revitalization efforts that over the next decade include dozens of new homes, a community garden, and a supermarket and health center.
1993: 43 families move into the JPNDC’s new Hyde Square Cooperative. The coop’s design was based on extensive neighborhood engagement and won an award for Excellence in Design from the Boston Society of Architects.
1996: The Jackson Square Stop & Shop, developed by a unique partnership among JPNDC, Bromley-Heath Tenant Management Corporation and a private developer, is the first major supermarket to open in Boston’s inner city in more than 15 years. The redevelopment also includes a new state-of-the-art home for the Martha Eliot Health Center.
