After years of blight and decline, Braddock is coming back in big and stunning ways.
New housing, new restaurants, urban farms and new stores are popping up on Braddock Avenue.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday for the Braddock Civic Plaza.
“Little bit by bit, you are continually rising us from ashes to beauty,” Richard Wingfield of the Unity Baptist Church said at the ceremony.
A project to tie it all together, transforming a vacant lot into a new Civic Plaza in the heart of town. It will be a gathering place for the entire community between the residential neighborhoods and the central business district.
