New Neighbors in building 5 of GB Campus

Scientific Properties signed a new lease with MindWorks Multimedia 

 It will be interesting to see signs life walking through building 5 which faces Belt Street. It was only 2 years ago it looked like a ghost town.

Scientific Properties, through its Edgemont Neighborhood subsidiary, has worked for 2 years to revitalize Golden Belt and its surroundings by purchasing abandoned housing in the Golden Belt Historic District neighborhood. The neighborhood is home to several energetic advocates, including Antoine and DeDreana Freeman, who lead the Golden Belt Historic District Neighborhood Association. (Check out their website in the sidebar.) Golden Belt has provided meeting space for the neighborhood association; their meetings are the third Thursday of each month and Golden Belt residents are welcome!

Recently, Scientific Properties found a next-door neighbor for Antoine and DeDreana when we sold Jordan Capps the renovated Victorian house at 1003 Worth Street (otherwise referred to as “the cute little green house”). He is working furiously on the renovations so that he can move to the neighborhood and become a part of the Golden Belt community.

In partnership with RD Construction Company, Scientific Properties recently completed the construction of 1101 and 1103 Franklin Street, the new, but traditional-style, red and green houses at the corner of Franklin and Elm Streets. We, and the neighborhood, are excited about the new houses on this prominent corner. The houses are for sale for $123,000 and $119,5000, respectively.

Here’s one article discussing the neighborhood and our new neighbor Jordan- We are ecstatic to have more presents in the on-line community to keep all abreast of Golden Belts progress.
