Wyalusing Academy about to be transformed into Lawler Lofts
RVI's efforts at developing one piece of the economic vitality pie in Prairie du Chien are about to be launched, pending a few standard approvals this month in Prairie du Chien and at the State level. Commonwealth Development will then take the empty building and transform it into gorgeous apartment living for 42 lucky families. The project should take about a year to construct. The building, a long time beauty in the City, will be preserved indefinitely as a National Register of Historic Buildings, but the amenities will be up to date and ready for the next century.
River to Valley Initiatives Inc. turns Kallembach Platteville Wisconsin Blight into quality living.
The city of Platteville Wisconsin took by legal fine foreclosure process 13 properties which were in disrepair and blight upon various parts of the community. Those properties were offered for a very small price under a request for proposal. River to Valley Initiatives, Inc. (RVI) acquired a property located on Southwest Street in Platteville, Wisconsin moved that structure to another blighted property located at 595 Lutheran Street which had collapsed upon it owner. RVI then created a solution for both blights. Saving and reusing one structure and creating affordable living. The pictures show the progress although longer than planned, because RVI wants to leave a quality property as its legacy in Platteville Wisconsin neighborhoods. In the end we are proud as are the new owners of the finished product, which will house a family and their senior mother.
595 Lutheran Street Platteville, Wisconsin and 420 Southwest Road in Platteville, Wisconsin are better off than when properties were endangering area residents.
