I think that a lot of the State Street Corridor projects were built as replacement housing for people displaced by Lake Meadows and Prairie Shores development, hence many families who worked and were really only there temporarily. The other problem, of part of the problems, were various federal mandates for rental rates and funding which gradually cropped up which more or less pushed community leaders (i.e. informal ones) and people who worked out of public housing, furthering their problems beyond what they would have had otherwise.
