A Centerpiece of a Community Revival
The 84 residential units were developed through private and public investment, and were designed to blend into the existing fabric of the community. An environment that provides solid construction and practical amenities surrounded by safe walkways and streets transforms the way residents view themselves and their neighborhood. The intent is to be a signal that will bring even more private investment to South Rome.
