This community outdoor space is a direct project of the City Heights Economic Development Collaborative, AKA CHEDC, a group of stakeholders who meet monthly to strategize on ways to bring dollars from different resources into the City Heights community to viably sustain a vibrant, thriving population. This space served initially as a small business incubator and has now become a community gathering space for students and families seeking respite from their daily commutes and looking to congregate at a safe and fun hang-out.
President Council Gomez addressed her constituents here at her 2019 State of the City Address. The first ever City Heights Business Expo was coordinated by CHEDC and held here and it was a great success. This space has seen hundreds of artists from local poets and international youth opera to Liberian rappers and African drum artists. Dozens of new micro-enterprises have launched from this location. This space offers \public transportation access and two new local new businesses: The DOJO Café and FastTrack Fashion. Both business owners are from the Mid-City area and are community advocates for the betterment of the neighborhood and as well as youth empowerment and safety.
