About Greater Collinwood Development Corporation
Founded in 1982 as Collinwood Villages Development, our name and service area have changed several times through the years, but our commitment to the communities we serve has remained steadfast. Throughout the years we have constructed new homes and retail businesses along St. Clair Avenue, provided land assembly for large scale industrial projects along South Waterloo Rd., engaged residents at community and civic meetings and worked with community stakeholders to craft neighborhood plans that guided neighborhood development. In July 2018 what was Collinwood and Nottingham Villages Development expanded its service area north to the lakefront, and now serves the communities of North Shore Collinwood, Collinwood Village/Five Pointes, Nottingham Village, and Euclid Green.
Greater Collinwood Development Corporation’s mission is to advance equitable and inclusive economic development, community engagement and neighborhood stabilization & revitalization strategies within the communities we serve. To achieve these goals, GCDC focuses its work in the following key areas: real estate development, housing initiatives, community engagement programs, business support services and neighborhood planning.
