Capitol Heights – GreenWorks Development

Sale of over 300 vacant parcels of HRA-owned land for construction of new, single-family homes, at market-rate prices.  It is a five-phase development totaling approximately 180 units.  To date, 133 homes have been constructed and sold.  The development is bordered by Kelker, Susquehanna, 5th Street, and Harris Streets.  Base units are 1,320 sq. ft. in 2-floor model, and 1,720 sq. ft. in 3-floor model.  Homes completed through 2009 were delivered by Struever Rouse Homes.  Project funding included conventional construction lending, City of Harrisburg’s federal “Community Development Block Grant”, and the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency “Homeownership Choice Program”.  In 2010, the Redevelopment Authority approved replacing Struever Rouse Homes with GreenWorks Development as the developer.  A 2002 study of homebuyers at the Capital Heights project shows that 68% of the new home buyers were existing residents of the City of Harrisburg.
