McCoy, 35, was recently in Harrisburg with a shovel in hand as the project kicked off.

Slated to cost $16.7 million, the project is named JMB Gardens in honor of his grandparents.

“It makes the environment safer so kids can go to school and be happy,” he told reporters, via a local NBC affiliate.

“It’s not a whole bunch of abandoned buildings or drug-infested areas.

“We’re going to knock everything down and fix everything up. And I always think about, as a kid, maybe you don’t have the best living conditions, or the best family structure, but this feels better.

“You can come home and they [can] call it home. You can be safe.”

McCoy reflected upon his childhood in the area, and how he hopes his work can help make it a safer place for the next generation to grow up.

“When I was a kid, I would walk the street all the time up here. And some of the environments weren’t always safe,” he admitted, via a local CBS affiliate.

“Certain hours of the day, you probably didn’t want to walk past these streets. But now, can I change that? Yes.”

It will feature four residential buildings consisting of 41 units, a community center, and a small park on the plot.

“The Gardens is a transit-oriented development with access to several CAT (Capital Area Transit) fixed routes, including Route 3 buses,” Vice Capital’s website explains.

“The development is part of a community revitalization strategy and will provide employment opportunities community residents.”

In June 2023, Vice also broke ground on a mixed-use project named Savoy 48 in Harrisburg.

The project will include 48 units, a rooftop deck, and a commercial space.

McCoy’s real estate career follows a hugely successful 12-year stint in the NFL, during which time he suited up for the Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

A two-time First-Team All-Pro, he racked up 11,102 rushing yards and 73 touchdowns in 170 games.
