What was once an old abandoned industrial building is now beautiful new housing in Ludington.
The Lofts on Rowe had their grand opening ribbon cutting Monday.
The lofts have 67 apartments with a mix of studio, one, two and three bedroom unities. The opening of the Lofts on Rowe will hopefully put a dent in the housing problem that many communities in northern Michigan are facing.
“I hope that it will immediately revitalize this area,” Marilyn Chrumka from Michigan Community Capital said. “This was a dilapidated building. It had animals living in it, the windows were broken and boarded up. And so now it will be lots of peoples homes, it will be vibrant and so we’re hoping the investment in the neighborhood will impact the rest of the neighborhood in a positive way.”
The Lofts on Rowe are about half full and they are still taking applications.
