In 2016, Vulcan Real Estate announced plans to redevelop a block at 23rd and Jackson that is currently home to a Red Apple grocery store that has served the neighborhood's predominantly African American community for decades. Shelf Life is an oral history project and community story booth located next to the soon-to-be-closed Red Apple that allows neighbors to share memories about the rapidly changing neighborhood. Its mission is to amplify, preserve, and learn from these histories, and to contribute historical context to conversations about change in the Central District. These stories can be heard online at
