omni cra public-private affordable housing partnership

On February 22, 2018, the Omni CRA Board unanimously approved a public-private partnership between developer Avra Jain of The Vagabond Group, the Omni CRA, and the Mt. Zion Community Development Corporation (CDC) to renovate forty-four units over five garden-style apartment buildings in the Historic Overtown neighborhood. By preserving the architectural character of the early 1950s buildings, the project will provide much needed quality affordable housing to existing residents while contributing to the social resiliency of the neighborhood and the City of Miami as a whole.
