Lake City Development Corporation today introduces the schematic for the commercial and mixed-use affordable housing project slated for midtown.

“The Housing Company’s Midtown mix-use, affordable housing initiative will be the main element in LCDC’s Midtown redevelopment effort, providing quality affordable housing, new street level commercial space, and new public space to the Midtown community,” said Tony Berns, Executive Director, Lake City Development Corporation.

This project will help improve, modernize and develp a unique live/work district within Coeur d’Alene out of what was once an underutilized area. This project will consist of 38 total units with a building footprint of 12,000 sq ft, 3 stories and 40’ tall.

“The Housing Company has worked with LCDC for 2 years now; We are happy to be involved,” said Douglas Peterson, Director, The Housing Company. “We will continue to work together to bring this project to fruition, while also fulfilling a need to create quality affordable housing in the Midtown neighborhood.”

The makeup of the project breaks down as follows:
