The Rose receives 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award from the Urban Land Institute

Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2016-Nov-04 — /EPR REAL ESTATE NEWS/ — PLACE is pleased to announce that The Rose and three sister developments at Portland and Franklin Avenues (South Quarter) in Minneapolis were selected by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing as the winner of the 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award. This annual award honors developments that ensure housing affordability for people with a range of incomes. Representing the completion of South Quarter, The Rose offers 43 market rate apartments and 47 income-restricted affordable apartments in profoundly sustainable buildings that have neither furnaces nor conventional air conditioning equipment.

In 2010, affordable housing developer Aeon, in partnership with Hope Community, selected PLACE by competition to add specialized development consultant capacity as Sustainability Champion for the last phase of South Quarter. Aeon wanted the final buildings to be the best performing buildings of their kind in the country, on an affordable housing budget. A 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to public benefit, PLACE provided disruptive environmental design analysis, assisted in assembling and facilitating a world-class collaborative design and construction team, deepened community engagement, and refined financial modeling in furtherance of creating high-performance, healthy buildings for Aeon’s residents.

Minneapolis has the harshest climate of any large city in America. The biggest challenge for PLACE was to ensure that the team could deliver a building envelope capable of keeping residents cool in a scorching summer with high humidity and a frigid winter with temperatures plunging to minus thirty degrees Fahrenheit. Buildings in the U.S. are built each day to standards that cause them to consume 70% of America’s primary energy, with 52% of that energy going to heating and cooling. The Rose is 75% more energy efficient than local standards require, which also deepens affordability for residents; it represents PLACE’s most cutting edge restorative development work to date.

“This project is on the leading edge of workforce housing development and preservation,” said J. Ronald Terwilliger, chairman of Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners in Atlanta. “It has it all—mixed-income housing, environmental sustainability, long-term affordability, and long-term financing.”

“The efforts of Aeon and Hope Community, with their many public and private sector partners, prove that previously disinvested communities can point the way forward for mixed-income, environmentally sustainable redevelopment in our cities,” said Stockton Williams, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center.

Baton Rouge Based Roof Crafters Launches New CRM Software For Clients

CRM Product Launch from Roof Crafters

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Oct-12 — /EPR REAL ESTATE NEWS/ — Chuck Magee, construction professional and owner of Louisiana-based roofing company Roof Crafters, is proud to offer Louisiana clients more access and insight into the progress of their roofing projects.

baton-rouge-roofing-contractors

As the most technically advanced roofing contractor anywhere, Chuck Magee and Roof Crafters have taken full advantage of cloud technology and developed their own proprietary cloud-based software system. This intuitive, easy-to-use system is only available in Louisiana to Roof Crafters clients.

Utilizing SSA Store Share Access, Roof Crafter clients will be able to track and keep up with all aspects of their roofing and roof related jobs, including warranty information, shingle type, shingle color and when the roof was installed. Pictures at various stages of the project are also provided.

Keeping this information properly stored and easily accessible is also vitally important for many clients that are having roof repairs performed due to damage from weather or other accidents. The portal makes it easy for clients to retrieve information for insurance purposes, or even if they wish to sell their house a number of years later and want to provide the buyers with the correct information about the roofing materials.

Working in construction for over two decades, Chuck Magee realized that a client-access system such as the one developed by Roof Crafters was sorely needed in the industry. Being able to access information at their leisure helps clients feel better about their projects and provides them with a more comprehensive, detailed record.

As a trusted expert in the industry, it was especially important to Chuck that his clients could get as much assistance and information as they needed when they needed it. He states that he is “especially excited to launch this new software for Roof Crafters clients to stay up to date on their roofing projects.”

Chuck knows that every roofing job is different, and having completed a re-roofing of his own home, he has firsthand experience of the challenges and inconveniences these projects can cause for his clients. This makes him a much more understanding and sympathetic consultant for those in the middle of a difficult roofing project, and it is why he thinks that the CRM product developed by Roof Crafters will be such a benefit to the residents of Louisiana.

Community Investment Strategies Holds Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Bloomfield Affordable Senior Housing Community

Heritage Village at Bloomfield Addresses Need for Affordable Housing Post-Hurricane Sandy

Bloomfield, N.J., March 11, 2016 — /EPR REAL ESTATE NEWS/ — State, county, and local officials joined Community Investment Strategies, Inc. (CIS) for a ribbon cutting ceremony to unveil Heritage Village at Bloomfield – an 82-apartment affordable 55-plus housing community in Bloomfield, Essex County that serves seniors on a fixed income.

After Hurricane Sandy, nearly 100,000 homes in Bloomfield were without power for several days. Of the 859 units in Essex County that suffered flood damage, 54 percent were low- to moderate-income households, leaving a high-demand for affordable housing options. Heritage Village at Bloomfield not only addresses the demand, but it was constructed with resiliency features to protect residents from future weather-related disasters. Resiliency features include high-quality, cement board exteriors; LED lighting; emergency generators; ground level bathroom and a shower that are accessible during times of extended power loss; and an energy-efficient ventilation system.

“As both a developer and owner of affordable housing complexes, Hurricane Sandy taught us that our communities need to be built stronger so they can withstand weather-related events and keep our residents protected,” said Christiana Foglio, CIS founder and CEO. “We took great care in making Heritage Village at Bloomfield resilient, preparing for the worst so residents can feel safe in the event of an emergency.”

Funding for Heritage Village at Bloomfield includes Low Income Housing Tax Credit equity provided by Boston Capital and JPMorganCHASE, a construction and permanent loan from the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA), and Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Funds.

“At NJHMFA, we are happy to have provided an integral part of the financing for Heritage Village at Bloomfield’s now completed redevelopment, which will directly benefit seniors while expanding affordable housing opportunities and community facilities,” said NJHMFA Executive Director Anthony L. Marchetta. “We awarded the redevelopment project federal 9 percent Low Income Housing Tax Credits that have generated approximately $12.7 million in private equity and $5 million in federal CDBG-DR dollars through the Fund for Restoration of Multifamily Housing (FRM) Program. This community represents another important revitalization program that has fully restored the quality and safety of each of these units from normal wear and tear as well as damage sustained in the wake of the superstorm.”

Heritage Village at Bloomfield is comprised of 74 one-bedroom and 8 two-bedroom apartments, as well a community room, wellness and fitness centers, library, and on-site management office. Apartments include heating, air conditioning, new, energy efficient appliances, LED lighting, and emergency pull cords. Residents will also enjoy a range of programmed activities.

“Our town was devastated after Hurricane Sandy. Some houses were nearly 10 feet underwater and others experienced property damage, downed power lines and fallen trees from the strong winds,” said Bloomfield Mayor Michael J. Venezia. “CIS shared our same vision for rebuilding Bloomfield after Hurricane Sandy, and we are grateful for the hard work they put into creating a community where residents can feel safe and comfortable and where our seniors will have the opportunity to continue living here and contributing to our community in affordable housing.”

Rent for a one-bedroom apartment ranges from $493 for residents at or below 30 percent area median income (AMI), $700 for residents at or below 50 percent AMI, and $862 for residents at or below 60 percent AMI. Rent for a two-bedroom apartment ranges from $592 for residents at or below 30 percent AMI and $1,028 for residents at or below 60 percent AMI. For leasing information, please call 973-748-1952.

The Metropolitan Council approves a $2M grant to fund a landmark, transit-oriented development in the heart of St. Louis Park, Minnesota

St. Louis Park, MN, December 11, 2015 — /EPR REAL ESTATE NEWS/ — On December 9, 2015 and after overwhelming enthusiasm and support from a rigorous application and vetting process, the Metropolitan Council approved funding for PLACE’s St. Louis Park Community. The Council approved 2 million dollars in funding from its Livable Communities Account for a Transit-Oriented Development (LCA-TOD) grant after the proposed project demonstrated a breakthrough approach to meeting housing and economic development needs in the Twin Cities. The funds will be used to help secure site acquisition at the former McGarvey Coffee property, pioneer alternative energy sources, and integrate stormwater improvement with infrastructure like green roofs and an urban forest.

A nonprofit called PLACE (Projects Linking Art, Community, and Environment) heads up the community endeavor in concert with the City of St. Louis Park, fellow eco-minded and socially conscious companies like Allianz Life, Stantec, Shaw-Lundquist, Lindquist & Vennum, MSR, LIFT, and Rachel Contracting that have invested in the project, other private partners, and public collaborators like Hennepin County. The community will elevate affordable living, design, and artistic culture in the city and will be located near the expected Green Line extension (Southwest Light Rail) Wooddale Station. The development’s potential positive impact is staggering, with healthy homes for 300 households across the income spectrum supported by a mobility hub, urban agriculture, live and work spaces, a hotel, and a renewable energy generation system that consumes food waste created by its inhabitants and surrounding neighbors.

Chris Velasco, PLACE’s Executive Director, observed, “I think this project will be of national significance for communities that want to effectively leverage their scarce resources.”

Ryan Kelley, City of St. Louis Park Planner, says, “The City of St. Louis Park is extremely proud to be the co-recipient with PLACE of the Met Council’s largest transit oriented development grant for a new sustainable community of regional significance.”

“PLACE is an excellent project, for the city and the region. Turning vacant, unused property into a community space with alternative energy features, that is connected to other uses, like transit, is just the kind of investment the Council wants to make toward a livable communities and a prosperous region” – Erin Heelan, TOD Grants Coordinator, Metropolitan Council Livable Communities.

Executive Director Velasco thanks the Metropolitan Council for its confidence and support on behalf of the entire team and the residents of St. Louis Park.

Real Estate Pros Host Workshop for Fixer-Uppers

Moxie Realty Group LLC hosts “So . . . You Want to Buy a Fixer” at TreeHouse

On Thursday, May 28, Moxie Realty Group LLC, along with co-hosts TreeHouse, Austin Title, and Austin Inspection Services bring you an evening of the truth about what to expect when you buy a property and fix it up.

This is the second time this year Moxie has worked to provide a great forum for learning about the pitfalls, plateaus, and pinnacles of fixing up a property. From finding a property, to getting financing, to getting the work done—this candid group of professionals, including a renovation financing expert, will provide information and answer questions about what it takes.

Justine Smith and Mishell Kneeland, also known as the Moxie Ladies, have both been involved in extensive renovations projects—Justine was even featured on an episode of Flip That House for moving a home from South to East Austin—and will share their different perspectives on renovation tolerance. “I was lucky,” Kneeland says, “I only had to please myself. Justine and her husband had to agree on what to do, and had to do it while keeping toddlers out of wet paint!”

The renovation loan specialist will share important financial considerations and timelines. Whether you want to buy a fixer for your own home, or as an investment, there is a renovation product available for you.

One of the great things about fixing up a home is that you can make some truly eco-friendly decisions, and have a chance to put your own stamp on your home. There is nothing like having the freedom—whether your style is minimalist or over-the-top. Kneeland’s home “office,” which she calls her “Chinese jewel box,” features red lacquered cabinets and a black chandelier she brought back from a trip to Amsterdam and beautiful light fixtures she shipped from a trip to Marrakech.

The Door Store Pines For Some Excellent Doors

The Door Store has an excellent range of doors to suit the whole of the building trade requirements. The choice of doors and the number of different options that have come onto the market in recent years is immense. The quality has improved and the prices have remained excellent during this period. The Door Store has been at the forefront of supplying top quality doors for all occasions and all types of building from a range of different materials.

The Door Store has an excellent range of Pine Doors and they have taken a great deal of care to choose some of the best available pine doors to supply at some of the lowest prices available. In particular The Door Store is very proud to be able to supply the JB Kind range of Pine Doors. There is a range of different designs but one of the best standard designs is the JB Kind Clear Pine Swansea Internal Door.

The Swansea door is a classic design of Pine door with four panels fitted with two smaller oblong panels in the bottom half of the door and two longer almost elongated panels in the top half of the door. The bottom of the top panels is horizontal and the sides are vertical but the top has a classic half bow at the top of each panel going from low to high from the edge of the door towards the centre. This classic design can be used throughout the house and will enhance the general appearance of the building. The curved detail of the panelling is excellent and provides a great focal point for the doors.

The Door Store notes the exceptional quality and affordability of solid timber pine doors. These doors have a pine central core with a laminated veneered finish, which can either be stained or painted. The Door Store notes that care must be taken with Pine Doors as when they are made the wood is kiln dried to reduce the moisture content to a very low level and if they are exposed to high humidity they will obviously absorb water and the reaction can ruin a door. It is essential that the door is sealed to preserve their integrity and this can be carried out either by use of a good stain or by painting. The Door Store note that in general Pine Doors are not recommended for a new build situation as the high humidity can effect this high quality door.

The Door Store (http://www.the-door-store.co.uk) notes that the pine internal door is of a first class construction and one of the best values for money of all modern doors. Pine is a wood that fits well in modern surroundings and will compliment a large range of decorations and general fixtures and furniture. It is noted that the doors can be painted to fit in with the general house decoration scheme or made to stand out as a feature. A greater choice can be viewed on The Door Store web site and any queries will be answered promptly.

Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange and Chatham Cos. Announces New Executive Vice President

After months of work and consideration, the Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange, and Chatham Counties (HBADOC) announces that Holly Fraccaro of Chicago, Illinois, has been named HBADOC’s new Executive Vice President (EVP).

HBADOC’s Executive Committee and the full Board of Directors recently approved Fraccaro as the person to take over the reigns of the non-profit trade association that serves the home building industry throughout the three counties.

“I am honored and excited to be joining the Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange, and Chatham counties at this time,” Fraccaro said. “My goal is to capitalize on the up-swing we’re seeing in the housing market and to use this momentum to engage, support, and promote our existing members and to increase the recruitment of new members. In the building industry, we all know how important a strong foundation is. Former EVP Nick Tennyson has done an incredible job of building the foundation. And now, together with the phenomenal staff and Board of Directors, I will build on that foundation to further the mission, to grow the organization, and to support our members.”

Holly Fraccaro is originally from North Dakota. She moved to Chicago for graduate school 18 years ago. Most recently, she served as executive director at North West Housing Partnership, a nonprofit organization in Chicago dedicated to creating and implementing programs to promote economically diverse housing by bringing public and private resources together. Before that she was executive director of the Single Room Housing Assistance Corp., a nonprofit that provides supportive housing to homeless adults in Chicago. A triathlete, she received her degree in psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago.

Fraccaro and her husband, attorney Kyle Fraccaro, are in the process of moving to North Carolina from Chicago. She will start work full time on October 7th.

According to Andy Krichman, HBADOC president, the selection process was involved and meticulous. The HBADOC’s selection committee first conducted focus-group interviews with key stakeholders to determine key aspects of the position in order to create job postings as well as assessments.

The committee also used an online application process with supplemental questions to be able to compare the applicants and metrics at each step of the process so the preferred answer or “best fit” answer for the organization was pre-identified and the applicant then compared to that.

Finally, the best candidates went through three stages of screenings during an intensive two-day interview process that culminated in a unanimous decision that Holly Fraccaro is the best EVP candidate for the HBADOC.

“Holly is the type of person who accomplishes whatever she sets her mind to,” Krichman said. “Holly is an energetic, positive, go-getter who enjoys working as a team player to accomplish goals. Together we will all help our HBA to build on what we have created and take it on to more growth and the next level.”

Each room is drenched in natural light with lots of new Andersen windows and the master bath includes a whirlpool jetted tub, double sinks, and stone/wood walls. The stone walls in the bathroom as well as the stone wall up the exquisite driveway, lit with tasteful lights at night, are Green River stone from Asheville, NC. New decking wraps around the house and includes large live oaks sprouting out making you feel like you’re in a nature preserve in the middle of N. Myrtle Beach. Outside every window you can see abundant wildlife. The original builders/owners wanted their home to blend into the natural environment and offer peace and seclusion. They accomplished that goal. The outside of the house is now wooden cedar shingles which really blend into the natural surroundings.

There is More to London Offices Than the Buildings Found on the Postcards

LondonOffices.com, a leading online resource for serviced offices in London, offers premier office space in the city’s iconic buildings and many others which can be just as beneficial.

London is home to some of the most important and prestigious business addresses in the world, but companies don’t have to choose the properties on the postcards to make the right move for their company.

The extensive range of serviced offices in London is diverse, with something for businesses of every size, in every commercial sector.

One of the keys to finding the right serviced office space in London for any business is choosing the right part of the city for your industry. The capital is home to thriving hubs of finance, media, information technology and much more. The most important part on a new office search is choosing serviced offices in the area of the city which suits the company best.

The vast majority of serviced offices in London will offer the facilities required to meet the day to day need of a business, but they won’t all be in the perfect part of the city. Why is this important? Because the close proximity of their peers, networking opportunites and the major players in their industry are advantage not to be missed.

With a little research into the various exciting business hubs that are active within the capital, it’s possible to choose a commercial location at the heart of an industry hotspot. The perfect office building might not be found on a postcode or the cover of a glossy magazine, but it can play a pivotal role inallowing the organisation to thrive and compete.

The City of London is one of the financial capitals of the world, so for hedge funds, investment firms and commodity traders, it pays to set up shop in The City. Many major banking and financial institutions have headquarters here, and they rub shoulders with the offices of 500 banks. The LondonOffices.com online portfolio features a variety of premium serviced offices in the city. These bespoke commercial locations have been carefully selected for the quality of their facilities and the strategic benefits of their locations and nearby transport links.

For IT start-ups the steely skyscrapers of The City have nothing on the off-beat office environments of East End London. Internet and technology giants like Google and Apple have taken residence in the East End. Intel, Facebook and Cisco are also neighbours, as East London Tech City continues to be seen as the UK’s Silicon Valley. You won’t find many of these quirky commercial spaces on the postcards either, but they could be the different between the success and failure of a web-based venture.

At the LondonOffices.com site a selection of handpicked serviced offices are waiting to be explored; by area, by postcode or by interactive street map. It couldn’t be simpler to browse the LondonOffices.com portfolio and find excellent commercial properties for any organisation. Premium Office Space Reports are available by request and a team of serviced office experts are waiting to deal directly with any queries at 020 7166 7981.

Pricing Nation Forecasts That The Average Home Values in Boston MSA Will Go Up in March 2014 by 1.45 Percent

Pricing Nation Econometrics forecasts that the average home value in the Boston Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) will increase by 1.45% through the next twelve months. Some of the drivers of local change include homeowner vacancies and average weekly wages.  While there is a decline in supply (52.4% decrease in vacancies from Q3 to Q4 2012), there is not much improvement in the average weekly earnings (0.42% increase from Q3 to Q4 2012), which suppresses growth.

A table with the top 5 biggest increases and decreases per average home value per zip code can be found below. The Pricing Nation Econometrics Heat Map (also below) visualizes how the average home prices will vary across zip codes in the Boston MSA. Pricing Nation Econometrics is a division of Pricing Nation LLC, and more information can be found at www.pricingnation.com.

As the “Most Reliable Real-Estate Forecasting Company,” we strive to consistently provide the most accurate, relevant, and transparent real-estate data. In fact, as of July 2012, our forecast results have been less than one point away from actual results as reported by Case-Shiller.
