Residents prepare to leave Norris Homes, making way for a new development that's also open to Temple students

A football flew across the parking lot between Marvine and 11th streets. Rasheem Webster, 27, reached out an arm and snagged it from the air. Football is a regular pastime for Webster and other residents who spend their afternoons in the parking lot.

Ahmed Williams worries about what the move could mean for his 11-year-old brother. Williams, 21, and his family already moved most of their belongings to their new home on 19th Street near Diamond.

In about five weeks, Frances Dixon, 43, and her family will move to 20th and Poplar streets. She lived in Norris Homes for almost 22 years.

Residents said they knew it was eventually coming, that it had been a possibility since 2011, when PHA tore down an 11-story high-rise next to the remaining houses on 11th Street near Diamond. On that lot, PHA built 51 modern, low-rise apartments.

But the true indication of Norris Homes’ fate came in 2013 when Paseo Verde, a mixed-income development, was built by Jonathan Rose Companies. Two blocks away from Norris Homes on 9th Street and Berks, it’s operated by the nonprofit Asociación Puertorriqueños en Marcha.

    Before the homes become rubble - The Temple News | Longform
    Beverly Williams was quiet, looking through her open front door on an uncommonly hot October morning. The only thing that moved was the reflection in her glasses of the two small children who lived next door, tottering around the parking lot.
