Open House – 114 S 7th St
March 28, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The fourth property in Lacasa’s East Lincoln Crossroads Revitalization (ELCR) project is renovated and ready to be leased. Lacasa will celebrate this milestone with an open house at 114 S. 7th St. in Goshen on Thursday, March 28 from 4– 6 pm. The public is invited to attend and see this beautifully renovated property.
114 S. 7thStreet, Goshen offers 4 affordable one-bedroom rental units. This continues to meet a growing demand for nice living options within walking distance of Goshen’s vibrant downtown. It also creates a significant investment in the community that will contribute to safety and home values.
The East Lincoln Crossroads Revitalization Project is taking 5 dilapidated multi-family houses and renovating them into attractive, safe, and affordable rental options within walking distance of downtown Goshen. These properties were vacant and were safety hazards to the surrounding neighbors. They will now contribute to neighborhood revitalization efforts in an area that is seeing significant changes due to the US 33 reroute.
Funding for the acquisition costs and initial securing of the 5 properties, located at 213 S. 7thSt., 408 E. Lincoln, 114 S. 7th St., 418 S. 7thSt., and 410 Jefferson St., was provided through a $250,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Elkhart County in late 2015. Additional funds for the renovation of each property were covered through a HOME grant awarded by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, NeighborWorks America through Project Reinvest, and with private donations and volunteer labor. The entire project will total an investment of 1.3 million dollars in this neighborhood. Lacasa’s real estate development work in the neighborhood is paired with a focus on the East Lincoln Crossroads neighborhood through its community building specialist.
