About the Project
Avesta Housing is excited to partner with Community Concepts, Inc., to bring much needed safe, affordable housing to downtown Lewiston, Maine.
The proposed Blake + Pine Apartments is a four-story elevatored building that will create 35-units of mixed-income homes for individuals and families.
Blake + Pine is located at the corner of Blake Street and Pine Street, within easy walking distance of several bus lines, Kennedy Park, and other services and locations that are important to daily living. This location is of particular interest not only because of its placement in the Tree Street neighborhood of Lewiston, but also because of the history of the site: though the parcels are currently vacant, they were previously the site of two multifamily apartment buildings that burned to the ground in 2013. As a result, this infill site holds great potential for the neighborhood, which has been identified by community agencies and the City as holding great opportunity for redevelopment and revitalization. By partnering with Community Concepts and working closely with the City and other neighborhood groups to understand the vision for this neighborhood, Avesta is leveraging its experience as a developer to meet the needs and priorities of those who live and work in this neighborhood.
