A mission-based, community-focused real estate development organization.

Creating stronger communities since 1980

Our mission is to transform lives by providing equitable access to housing and wealth-building opportunities for under-resourced communities, particularly those affected by systemic bias. Over the last 40 years, OLCDC (now Ten North Group) has been a leading force in shaping our community. Our comprehensive approach to community and housing development has helped us to become one of Florida’s largest and most respected CDCs (Community Development Corporations).

Ten North Group accomplishes its mission by owning, developing, and managing affordable housing and creating opportunities for home ownership. In addition, Ten North Group builds communities through its social, educational, and financial programs, which have, to date, served close to 4,000 youths, 6,250 children and families, and close to 2,500 first time home buyers and Ten North Group’s CDFI has provided loans and technical assistance to over 1,500 small business owners and entrepreneurs. Ten North Group’s Art Foundation uses the arts and culture to write the future stories of previously overlooked places.

Our Evolution to
Ten North Group

As we evolve, we must re-align stakeholder perceptions to stay current with who we have become and our strategic goals. By rebranding, we can better tell our growth story, reach a broader community, and more effectively position our services and authority as a mission-based, community-focused, real estate development organization.

We are excited to announce our new name, Ten North Group. Like our organization, our new name is rooted in the story of Opa-Locka, a community that is often referenced as being “ten miles north of the City of Miami.” Our new logo visually represents the story of weaving different resources, affiliates and people together to create a stronger community.

Town Center Apartments

Ten North Group has been dedicated to ensuring South Floridians have access to affordable housing since our inception in 1980. Over time, tackling the area's lack of affordable housing became OLCDC's major focus.

Creating a Bright Future for Opa-Locka

We are proud of our legacy of activating community transformation at Ten North Group. Our commitment to creating this change grows stronger as we embark on an exciting new project, City Terrace in Opa-Locka. An extensive, mixed-use development that will revitalize our community with quality, affordable, community-accessible housing, and commercial opportunities.

This multi-block development will preserve the legacy and enhance the walkability of our neighborhood. In addition, it will reactivate a hidden downtown, protect housing accessibility, and invest in aesthetics and placemaking while expanding job skills, education, and wealth-building opportunities within our unique community.
