Last month, the Durham Housing Authority board approved $470 million in redevelopment plans for three properties, including the long-vacant Fayette Place site in Durham’s historic Hayti community. Now, members of that community are asking DHA to rescind those plans and reconsider a proposal it rejected: one named Hayti Reborn that reimagined Fayette Place as a future hub for Black business and equity research. Hayti Reborn was one of the five proposals submitted for Fayette Place in September 2021. It is led by Henry McKoy, a professor and director of entrepreneurship at the N.C. Central University School of Business, who signed a written protest submitted to DHA on Friday.
