Restoring Properties, Rebuilding Communities
Thursday, January 20th, 2011
Benchmark’s own Chestnut Commons was featured on the cover of a white paper by The Center for Community Progress for it’s redevelopment of an old structural concrete plant into a thriving detached condo community in east Austin.
The Center for Community Progress was created in 2010 to help local and state governments seize the opportunity to reuse vacant and abandoned properties for the economic and social benefit of their communities. Including some of the nation’s leading practitioners, policy architects, and advocates, Community Progress is the national resource for policy, information, capacity building, training, and technical assistance on the reuse and redevelopment of vacant, abandoned, and problem properties.
