ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Residents will soon be able to make themselves at home at one of downtown Rockford’s newest loft apartments.
Crews broke ground on the construction of the CA Flats, on the corner of West Jefferson and North Church Streets.
The apartments will feature 18 loft units, stores on the ground floor, and 26 parking spots.
The CA Flats development is just one of three major downtown developments by Urban Equity Properties.
City Administrator Todd Cagnoni say the project will strengthen Rockford’s economy.
“Projects like this, that bring additional residential units to our downtown, bring additional opportunities for small businesses and services to be established in the commercial spaces, is a part of our overall strategy — not only to redevelop Rockford as a whole, but specifically our downtown,” he said.
Construction for CA Flats is scheduled to be completed in December of 2020.
