A local builder is doing a lot of infill projects in downtown Fresno. Many are finished and have people living in them, and one is almost done and will start leasing in June. Because the projects are not the normal type of Fresno dwelling–single family on a large lot–the company, and the downtown association, work hard at getting people to view and talk about these properties. They are high density, multiple stories, and urban in design. The projects definitely attract a younger audience.
Last weekend was a “loft tour,” showing off many of these properties and giving a sneak-peak at the newest, and yet unfinished set of town homes. Because the building is still “under construction,” we had to wear hard hats and sign a waiver to tour it.
