Greater Linden Development Corporation (GLDC) is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation serving the Greater Linden community. We work in collaboration with Linden leaders, partner organizations and government entities to create a better quality of life for Linden residents through housing and economic development as well as through other community revitalization initiatives.

GLDC has been serving Greater Linden since our incorporation in 1994.  Our service area is bounded by Bonham Avenue to the south, Woodland Avenue to the east, Weber Road to the north and the CSX Railroad right-of-way to the west.  This service area includes all of the Columbus neighborhood known as South Linden, and a small portion of the neighborhood known as North Linden.

GLDC’s office is in the Clarence D. Lumpkin Point of Pride building, located at 1410 Cleveland Avenue (on the northeast corner of Cleveland and 11th Avenues, just east of the 11th Avenue exit from I-71).
