Since 2009 fire claimed two sources of affordable housing and three historic landmarks.
On December 22, 2009 fire ravaged the Cadillac building, leaving behind only a shell of what used to be 18 units of affordable housing and the State Representative’s office. This Pre-Christmas blaze left 18 families without a place to call home.
Nearly three years later fire swept thru the Hotel Do-De and the Garman Theatre. In the early morning hours of September 9, 2012, an intentionally set blaze claimed 20 more units of affordable housing.
Progress Development Group is building 32 new units of workforce
housing restoring the viability of these downtown locations.
The Cadillac Building, designed by the first female engineer in PA, has now been added to the National Historic Registry. We intend to create 11 units and an entire floor of community space.
The Garman and Do-De sites combined will house 21 additional units of workforce housing.
