Looking for ppl. who have dealt with alternative financing and innovative parking ideas. We have a gem of a building (historically speaking) smack dab in our downtown. The general concensus is to convert it into residential (which it is already zoned for) with commercial on the bottom floor. It would be safe to say that mixed income and mixed-use development is unfamiliar and uncomfortable territory for our community... however, it would be well-suited to our particular downtown configuration (which is has NO residential at all). If done right, this could be a catalyst for creating a balanced downtown environment. I've included some pics for you curious folks out there!
The first pic is of the the building marked for rehab. The second pic is of the downtown.
