Torti Gallas is part of a development team commissioned by the Bridgeton Housing Authority to revitalize various distressed areas of the city. Funded with a 2001 HOPE VI Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the revitalization program seeks to demolish and replace public housing in sites throughout the city. This is a unique program in that typical HOPE VI revitalizations concentrate on a particular housing development, rather than scattered infill sites. One of the target sites is located in the largest historic preservation district in the State of New Jersey, adding another element to an already challenging and diverse project.
The new housing consists of single family detached and twin units.
