1000 Lake Avenue Renovation
The historic building at 1000 Lake Avenue has been in existence since the 1920’s. The building was left to deteriorate before the CRA purchased the building in 2008. In 2010 the CRA began the tedious process of interior demolition, removing mold, and re-roofing the building to stop further deterioration. This building sits at the gateway to the City’s western downtown area. It is also located near our Artisanal Industrial area in which new development projects are beginning to take place. To further the redevelopment of this important area, it is in the City’s and the CRA’s best interest to have the building at 1000 Lake Avenue open and utilized, in the very near future, in order to further stabilize the area, add jobs, and people to the area.
