During its 2019 Annual Conference, NALHFA presented the Housing Finance Authority of Miami-Dade County with the Redevelopment Excellence award in recognition of Courtside Family Apartments.


Courtside Family Apartments is the first of a three-phased master planned community; each phase of the revitalization initiative will provide much needed affordable housing. Retired NBA star, Alonzo Mourning conceptualized Courtside Family Apartments to continue his charitable work in the City of Miami in line with establishment of the Overtown Youth Center and creation of his annual community outreach events, “Zo’s Summer Grove” and Zo’s Winter Grove.”

The property was secured by Mr. Mourning via a 65-year ground lease on approximately four (4) acres of land on the grounds on the post-civil rights era Culmer Center in Overtown where over 50% of the population lives below the federal poverty level.  The development is located on Miami-Dade County–owned land it shares with the Culmer Neighborhood Community Service Center and which provides social services to the area’s low-income residents. 

Courtside Family Apartments is an 84-unit affordable housing development located at 1700 NW 4th Avenue in Miami’s historic Overtown neighborhood. Courtside Family Apartments is an affordable (60% or less of AMI), 6-story mid-rise residential community that includes 10 one-bedroom, one-bath apartments; 53 two-bedroom, two-bath units; 21 three-bedroom, two-bath units; and four live-work units. Located in Miami’s historic Overtown Neighborhood where, according to 2013 Census data, approximately 62% of Overtown's 13,000-plus residents are African American and a third are of Hispanic descent.
