    Redeveloping urban housing authority land

    I'm doing some research on the redevelopment of aging housing projects in urban cores (particularly in cases where the land is valuable because of its proximity to the CBD). Basically, does anyone know of cases where a housing authority has revamped its housing stock without necessarily selling off the land to private developers? I'm looking for different ways of how this can be done, both organizationally and financially.

    Not sure if this will help you, but I used to work in West Palm Beach, FL and just got word that the Housing Authority there received approval from HUD to demolish about 13 units in a public housing complex built back in the 40's, to make way for new units, office, and retail. Their goal is to eventually redevelop the entire complex into a mixed-income/mixed-use development, but not sure how that will transpire..Here's 2 links to articles about it, as well as, their website:
