The redevelopment of the Liberty Bank Building helps preserve affordability in the neighborhood by bringing 115 units of much-needed affordable housing. For rent ranges, see this page for any newly available apartments, depending on income.
The project partners honored the legacy of Liberty Bank not only in design, but also by creating affordable space for local businesses and fostering community for residents in the neighborhood.
From construction to design, to ongoing use and ownership of the building, the Liberty Bank Building sets a standard for what community-led development can look like.
