25 homes. 25 families. One community.
What do you call home? We believe home is where you grow.
Community Ventures, in partnership with Louisville Metro and JP Morgan Chase, is pleased to announce the first of 25 homes has broken ground on Cedar Street. We are teaming up with local contractors, realtors, and lenders to create and develop a unique neighborhood true to the heart of the Russell community. If you are looking for a place you can call home, Cedar Street might be your new address.
Building Cedar Street from the Ground Up
The new homes sprouting up on Cedar Street are not the only thing to celebrate. In preparation for this project, the City of Louisville worked hard to revamp the infrastructure of this quiet thoroughfare, installing new street lights, laying down new asphalt, setting up new electrical wiring, and repairing street damage. The gas, electric, and sewer systems on Cedar Street are brand new, providing new and existing tenants with top quality amenities. Lastly, new trees and grass were planted as part of an initiative to bring greener space to the city’s urban centers.
