Goldblock Redevelopment Project
36-120 Munroe Street
Goldblock was a mixed-use development project located nine miles north of Boston in Lynn, Massachusetts. Between 1999 and 2004, on behalf of its investors, Oasis Development Enterprises developed a strategically-located, two-acre, parcel along Munroe Street, hoping to be a catalyst in the redevelopment of the downtown Empowerment Zone.

In August 2005, through Oasis’ in-kind rent subsidy program, Covenant Christian Academy was able to lease 40,000 square feet of space at 83 Pine Street in West Peabody on a “free rent” basis. Formed in 1991 by a group of parents, CCA’s mission is to build students’ academic, spiritual, and social foundations while challenging them to realize their God-given potential. Oasis donated funds for tenant improvements, project management fees, leasing commissions, and legal and accounting costs, as well as subsidizing their lease payments totaling over one million dollars in support of CCA’s vision to become the flagship K-12 Christian education in the North Shore area of Boston.

In 2005, Campus Crusade for Christ had been looking to relocate to a prime downtown Boston location in order to better serve the University students in the Boston Area. However, the high rents made it virtually unaffordable. Through Oasis’ in-kind charitable program, Campus Crusade moved into its prime downtown “dream office space” at 10 Milk Street in Boston on June 1, 2005.

Vision New England is a 120-year-old Boston-based 501c(3) organization which had recently undergone a major ministry makeover, resulting in a vision of “the whole church taking the whole gospel to the whole New England region”. During the reorganization process, VNE made the decision to relocate its headquarters. After almost two years of planning, through the Oasis Group’s in-kind “free-rent” program subsidy, VNE was able to lease 6,000 square feet of prime office space at the Liberty Tree Office Park in Danvers, MA, owned by East West Enterprises.

The Food Project
120 Munroe Street
Based on the results of a 2006 private criteria-based study performed by Oasis Development Enterprises, the Food Project in Lynn was chosen to be a recipient of in-cash donations and in-kind support. The Food Project is a Boston-based nonprofit whose mission is to create a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system. The boys and girls involved in The Food Project come to understand the impact of hard manual labor while learning commerce, economics and the concept of value. Participants in the programs run by the Food Project plant, harvest and sell half their fresh produce in local farmers markets and donate the other half local soup kitchens and food pantries. Their goal is to provide healthy food that is affordable for anyone in the community.
