Case study: ENCORE! Due Monday, March 30 by 11:59 pm Submit via Canvas CONTEXT: The Encore! Redevelopment district is located about 9.5 miles south of USF between Downtown and Ybor City. The district itself is about 12 city blocks (~ 40 acres) with a public park. The history of the area in which the site is located goes back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. The site was first settled by people who were freed from slavery (1865) and it continued to grow as a culturally, economically and politically vibrant racially segregated town during Jim Crow. This area was known as ‘The Scrub’ and the main corridor was Central Avenue - part of which still exists today(and which you’ll walk during your site visit). The place went through another wave of urban change alongside the civil rights movement, the repeal of Jim Crow laws (1965), urban renewal, suburbanization, and general disinvestment around the urban core [see chapters 6 & 7]. In the spirit of urban renewal [see chapter 3], the city began systematically razing the homes and businesses in this area to build an affordable housing apartment complex called Central Park Villages (1954) and make way for I-275 (1960’s). By 1974, the entire Central Avenue business district was demolished. In 2006, the City of Tampa adopts the ‘Central Park Community Redevelopment Plan’ and designates an area including this site as a CRA (community redevelopment area) which comes with a “TIF” instrument [see chapter 9]. The next year, in 2007, the city forcibly relocates the 483 households living in Central Park Villages and then demolishes the affordable housing apartment complex. In 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was passed which made available funds for the city to redevelop the site. Redevelopment of Central Park Villages into the Encore! ​Tempo District​ began in 2009. In 2012, it received funds from the Choice Neighborhood grant. The first building that was completed and opened for residents was the ​Ella​ in 2012 (160 senior units), the Trio i​ n 2014 (141 units), the ​Reed ​in 2015 (158 senior units), the ​Tempo ​in 2018 (203 units). Since the redevelopment project is using federal funds, a portion of the multi-family, mixed-income apartment units must be made available to low-income households. YOUR TASKS 1.

Urban Change, Social Equity and Urban Life
Urban spaces bring together a diverse array of people with different experiences but that
is the fabric on which cities are made from; diversity, inequalities, and differences. Urban spaces
especially those dating back to colonial times offer a distinct view on how race, has been used to
map out such spaces and subconsciously, this thinking has carried forward to modern times and
is evident in the reformation and rehabilitation of various places. The Encore is such a space that
through its history, we can tell the journey of social inequity, whereby despite all the changes it
has undergone, residents of this area are still at a disadvantage despite the city’s efforts to
rehabilitate the space.
The Encore, formerly the Central Park villages, started exclusively for freed slaves and as
such, it was a racially segregated space with just forty acres set aside to accommodate a large
number of the freed slaves. The diversity in the slaves offered for a vibrant culture as well as
