Brawley Street Model Block

The Brawley Street Model Block is the first residential construction project of the City of Spartanburg's Northside Initiative.

 Quick Facts

  • Location: Brawley Street
  • Broke Ground: December 2013
  • Expected Completion: December 2014
  • Total cost: $1.2 million
  • Details: On December 05, 2014, six families moved into three, two-unit townhomes on Brawley Street in the Spartanburg Northside. Cambridge Place is a modern complex, which consists of brightly colored, energy-efficient homes with large porches and state-of-the-art appliances. The Spartanburg Housing Authority is anticipating receiving LEED certification on this project.

     

    The Brawley Street Model Block was funded by a $1 million federal grant to the Spartanburg Housing Authority (SHA). In addition, the City of Spartanburg funded more than $220,000 in streetscaping and other infrastructure improvements. This complex is targeted for sale to first-time home-buyers in an effort to successfully transition them out of public or subsidized housing. The Brawley Street Model Block is an "early-in" project of the broader Northside Initiative, and represents the type of high quality construction and attractive design of all new residential development to come on the Northside.
