Lafayette celebrates Chatham Square development

A resident of Lafayette’s Chatham Square says there’s nothing like it in the city.

Will Currin and his family live in one of the community’s 89 rental units.

"It's very nice, very different. It seems like something that doesn't belong here. Seems like something that belongs in another town. It's good for the children, very roomy, and the management is great to deal with.”

He says his townhome is energy efficient, which helps keep utility costs low. Currin looked on during the ribbon cutting ceremony for Chatham Square Thursday morning.

The city bought the property and, in late 2009, began tearing down Bridgeway Apartments, a high-crime apartment complex.

Brinshore Development was hired to create the rental townhomes and ten owner-occupied homes at the corner of Greenbush Street and Shenandoah Drive. Residents now must meet certain employment and income requirements.

Mayor Tony Roswarski says everyone involved helped turn that troubled complex into a quality place to live.
