In significant need of repair, DDE spearheaded the restoration of The Habit Brothers Building. We commissioned architectural drawings from Mauer Architecture and developed an investment plan that garnered support from four local investors who acquired the property. After stabilizing the building, they transformed the second floor into five modern apartments. Today, this building accommodates four thriving street-level businesses and an additional five apartments on the upper stories, increasing the property value and contributing to the area’s tax base.
