More than 50 people gathered at the corner of Garden and Washington streets to celebrate an open house for ReVere Homes, Logansport’s newest multi-family tax credit properties.
Last November, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) recommended that tax credits be awarded to Indianapolis-based Crestline Development Co. to help fund a project that will add 30 new homes — 15 affordable three-bedroom homes and 15 affordable four-bedroom homes — on scattered sites throughout the community.
Jim Erickson, vice president of Crestline Development, said that he is proud of the project and hopes to leave a positive impact on the city.
“We’re hopeful that this project is a great benefit to the people of Logansport,” said Erickson. “To be able to either fill empty lots or replace homes that were condemned, and then to put up something brand new and well-built, in a design for long-term living, is nothing but a very positive thing.”
The new homes are being built on city-owned lots acquired through the Blight Elimination Program (BEP)
