Developers plan affordable housing downtown South Bend and in neighborhoods

We are hoping #ThirdTimesTheCharm for the five-story senior apartment development we're proposing for a South Bend (IN) block that has been "empty and an eyesore for years."

Multi-Housing News

"We are thrilled to bring more affordable housing to New Orleans (in close proximately to our 2 Oaks Apartments community) and simultaneously contribute to the revitalization of a site and community that continues to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina." - Dan Kroetz, Senior VP of Development.

The Commonwealth Companies has received a $23 million financing package for the development of The Reveal, a 150-unit affordable housing project in New Orleans.

The city expects to add 70,000 new residents by 2040 and needs to build 40,000 units — about 2,000 a year — to meet demand, but is falling short of those projections and is exploring ways to increase production.

Proud that Commonwealth Construction was the general contractor for this beautiful church renovation.

Mass of Rededication – St. Mary of the Angels Catholic Church – February 22, 2020
A few photos from the Mass of Rededication. The newly renovated church is really lovely. Rather than let the church close, as is the fate of so many Catholic churches these days, the parish members fought really hard to keep the church open. Sometimes it may have seemed like it was against all odds that the renovation would take place, but the hard work, effort, and most importantly, the faith of the people, paid off. The Church is now, "Open for prayers." For those in the Green Bay area, please stop in and check out the Renovation. Come and Worship with us. "All are welcome in this place."

Great construction progress happening at Surf View Village thanks to BC Contracting!

We have another project on the west coast! Surf View Village is underway in Newport, OR!
