225 Laura Street Apartments


In late 2022, Riverside residents Rafael and Carmen Godwin purchased this property from neighbor and friend Ron Chamblin They propose to restore the property in the same way contemplated by Chamblin – retail or food service on the ground floor with residential on the top two.

Originally built in 1904 as two stories, the wood structure was restored and lifted to become 3 floors with a brick facade. The couple received conceptual approval by DDRB in December 2022 and are working through the process of getting it designated a Historic Landmark, which will also lead to funding assistance by the DIA DPRP program.

“We are excited to make a difference in our downtown by revitalizing and activating a historic building so close to our city center.”
