REPORT
2014
Greetings from the Board President and Executive Director
In 2014, ACDC deepened our work in creating healthy and vibrant communities for Asian Americans in the Greater Boston
region. We made significant progress on the construction of One Greenway, which will be completed in 2015 and will add 363
units of mixed-income housing, public green space, and community use space. We also embarked on ACDC’s first preservation project, Tremont Village, which is receiving much needed improvements after 27 years. When completed, it will enable
current residents to live in safer and more energy efficient homes. This is also the first year that Massachusetts has created
the Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC); ACDC was among the select group of community development corporations
to receive a CITC allocation. The funds raised with CITC have enabled us to expand our first-time homebuying course to its
largest ever attendance, as well as to grow our A-VOYCE youth program and Chinatown walking tours. This has truly been a
year for growth. Thank you for your support.
Board President Executive Director
About Asian Community Development Corporation
Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC) is committed to serving the Asian American community of Greater Boston
with an emphasis on preserving and revitalizing Boston’s Chinatown. Founded in 1987, it has built over $110 million of new mixedincome, mixed-use real estate developments that are home to more than 800 people. First-time homebuyer workshops as well as
youth programs and community organizing and planning keep the community engaged in improving their lives where they work,
live, and play.
2014 Highlights
ONE GREENWAY construction started in 2013 and made sig-
nificant progress in 2014. When completed, the development will
provide 363 units of housing (40% affordable: 95 rental and 51
homeownership units), the highest number of affordable units of
any project in downtown Boston. This is the only development in
downtown to include affordable homeowner units, allowing families to invest in the neighborhood. In addition to residential units,
One Greenway will have an open space for the whole community
to enjoy.
Renovations to make TREMONT VILLAGE safer and more energy efficient began in
fall 2014. ACDC oversaw major improvements such as installing a new sprinkler system
and new smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, replacing 75% of appliances, installing thermal-efficient windows, and installing water-efficient toilets, faucets and showerheads. ACDC’s first property preservation project plays a key role in supporting families
in the Chinatown area.
We invested in the community, cultivating social connections in our housing and in
the neighborhoods we serve. Through ACDC’s Resident Engagement efforts, we ran
English language classes and basic computer skills classes for the elderly in our OAK
TERRACE Reading Room. Our community gatherings included a trip to Hampton
Beach as well as our annual resident summer BBQ’s in OAK TERRACE and 6 FORT
STREET in QUINCY.
With support from our COMMUNITY ADVISORY BOARD (CAB), ACDC ran
an Institute for Leadership in Equity and Development (ILEAD) workshop in Quincy,
attended by 44 community members, 37 of whom were Chinese speakers. Participants
gained skills to become advocates for sustainable and equitable development in their
neighborhoods.

ACDC runs the only Chinese-language first time homebuyer
programs in New England.
The ASIAN VOICES of ORGANIZED YOUTH for COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT (A-VOYCE) program builds a
pipeline of young leaders who advocate for our community. We expanded A-VOYCE from a summer program to a full year-long
program, where we invested deeply into 20 youth leaders. Together, we re-imagined the physical spaces in Chinatown and
revitalized the neighborhood through creating public art displays and civic engagement initiatives.
ACDC’s CHINATOWN WALKING TOUR led 19 tours to over 460 participants, which more than doubled last year’s record.
A-VOYCE youth served as tour guides using their own personal narrative for the tour experience. These tours not only introduce
outsiders to the rich history of Chinatown, but also serve as a venue for Chinatown youth to be authors of their community’s
history.
