Heritage at Sliding Rock is part of an on-going master plan for the Jesse Jackson Townhome Revitalization Project. In 2004 the Housing Authority of the City of Greenville received a $20 million United States Department of Housing & Urban Development HOPE VI grant for the development of Heritage Commons.

Heritage at Sliding Rock will increase the rental unit portfolio from 472 to 532.
