24 Rental Units
$5.1 Million Investment (combined with Goldman Lofts)
Renovated in 2001, Renaissance Lofts marks one of the first projects in the region to create loft living downtown. The site houses a mix of first floor commercial spaces and 24 lofts on the upper floors.
Keeping with the unique attributes of other downtown lofts, Renaissance offers 14 different floor plans for its spacious one-to-three bedroom units. Downtown dwellers enjoy the large windows, high ceilings, and exposed building elements including brick columns and beams.
This redevelopment effort is just one of many Historic Renovations completed by GROWTH. The Renaissance Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Interesting Fact: Over 140 workers through various trades were employed throughout the development of the Renaissance and Goldman Lofts.
