A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Monday for Carlisle Townhomes.
Located on the site of the former Carlisle Tire & Wheel plant, Carlisle Townhomes will be the first new construction to rise on one of the three former industrial sites in Carlisle that have been the focus of the Carlisle Urban Redevelopment Plan.
The groundbreaking ceremony, which begins at 11 a.m. Oct. 2, will be held at the intersection of College and C streets.
Cleveland-based PIRHL has partnered with the Cumberland County Housing and Redevelopment Authority to create Carlisle Townhomes. The partnership will bring a total of 52 housing units, a clubhouse, and a 2.2-acre green space on 6.4 acres of land between a proposed B Street extension and D Street between College and Factory streets. The company will also extend C Street through the former Carlisle Tire & Wheel site.
As “workforce” housing, the development’s target market is families in which the primary wage earner is making $12 to $20 per hour. Rent at the development will range from about $550 to $900 per month, not including utilities, and there is an option to purchase the unit.
