The Nicetown CDC totally redeveloped this formerly abandoned property located at 4300 Germantown Avenue. It houses the NTCDC Neighborhood Energy Center, Computer Lab, and Mural Arts After School Program. The NTCDC Community Center also provides a meeting place for the Block Captains.
In 2002, the City selected the Nicetown CDC to be the administrator for the Nicetown Neighborhood Advisory Committee, which is known today as the NTCDC/NAC. This program is governed by the Office of Housing & Community Development, and administered by a resident-elected Committee, to deliver vital social services to low-moderate income residents in the NTCDC/NAC service area. In 2006, this service area was expanded from 7 to 12 census tracts, and today the NTCDC/NAC also operates a satellite office at the West Oak Lane Office Center - 2001 Tulpehocken Street.
