Renissa Wade, managing director, said they are “restoring that neighborhood back to its former glory and putting in those same types of houses craftsman styles. Then we’re going to look at maybe do(ing) some refurbishing of houses in the surrounding area and see the beauty come back to what’s already a beautiful neighborhood.”

Despite getting the green light recently, this project has been four years in the making. The city plans to complete phase one in the next six months.
