“As CEO of REACH Riverside, [Logan] Herring is overseeing one of the most ambitious development projects in the state. The Purpose Build Community project aims to rebuild all of the public housing units in Wilmington’s Riverside Neighborhood and convert it to a mixed-income neighborhood, in addition to making improvements and expanding services at a local school and community center. The idea is to break up concentrated poverty and improve life outcomes in one of the state’s poorest neighborhoods. Some residents are wary, but the project has the attention of influential figures in housing development, and could have ripple effects in northeast Wilmington.”
