January 3, 2023

ANNAPOLIS, MD (Jan 3, 2023) (Globe Newswire) Community Redevelopment, Inc. (OTC Markets: CRDV) through its subsidiary, Artistry, LLC (Artistry), acquired 100% ownership interest in a multi-family rental condominium property in Washington D.C. with an expected appraised value upon completion of over $5,000,000 assigned from Richard Balles in a cash and stock transaction. The property is located at 1618 21st Place with a designed total of 15 units and includes: three 3-bedroom, eight 2-bedroom, four 1-bedroom units.  The property is nearing the end of the construction process with an anticipated completion by the end of second quarter 2023.

Affordable housing is a national crisis. In Washington, DC alone there are nearly forty thousand families on a waiting list for affordable homes, according to the DC Fiscal Policy Institute. “As a socially conscious real estate company, we are committed to creating more equitable solutions in the rental housing market while also providing our shareholders stable returns since affordable housing tends to be more consistent across economic cycles,” stated Lara Fritts, CEO of Community Redevelopment.

The acquisition of this property continues to increase CRDV’s assets and sets Artistry, LLC on course to revenue generation.  Artistry provides new and renovated properties that accept Section 8 vouchers in the fast-growing communities of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. “We have at least a dozen more potential projects already identified in the pipeline and our goal is to substantially increase affordable options throughout the region.” shared Richard Balles, President of CRDV.
