ROSEBURG, OR (April 23, 2019) –  Investment Property Group, a developer specializing in manufactured home communities and RV parks, welcomed Roseburg, Oregon’s Honorable Mayor Larry Rich at a recent ceremony to commemorate the grand opening of 44 new budget-friendly homes at River Place.

The event highlighted the community’s affordability in a market where home prices are rising rapidly.

“River Place, a collection of gorgeous custom for-sale residences, demonstrates that home ownership is within reach in this market,” says David Cornell, Chief Operating Officer for Investment Property Group. “Affordable, appealing homes do exist, and they can be found right here in Roseburg.”

The new residences feature a broad array of finishes and floor plans and are attractively priced starting under $100,000, says David Bates director of Homes Sales and Marketing for Investment Property Group.

“Each home is unique, offering ample square-footage, full appliance packages, custom backsplashes, modern flooring, and custom paint colors,” explains Bates. “We’ve also added a new playground and a dog park for our residents to enjoy.”

Prices at River Place start at approximately $95,000 for a 1,500 square-foot home, which is approximately a third of the price of a traditional new home, Bates points out.

The River Place community, which now includes 159 residences, is an all-age, pet-friendly gated community in the heart of Douglas County that offers spaciously separated three- and four-bedroom homes.

 River Place also offers a basketball court and private access to Umpqua River and Robert’s Creek.  The community is located close to restaurants, The Wildlife Safari, shopping, schools, hospitals, and houses of worship.

            River Place has expanded its sales office hours to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m every day, seven days per week. Open houses are held at the community every Saturday at 239 River Place Dr., Roseburg, Oregon.

Structured Development and Burnt City Brewing Complete First-of-its-Kind Brewpub in Chicago’s West Town

Burnt City Brewing warehouse, 417 North Ashland Avenue,
 West Town neighborhood. Chicago, IL

CHICAGO, IL (April 23, 2019) – Structured Development LLC and Burnt City Brewing have announced the completion of District Brew Yards, the nation’s first brewery collective with a pour-your-own beer hall, located in a repurposed warehouse at 417 N. Ashland Ave., in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood.

Structured led the conversion of the former photography studio in partnership with Burnt City, whose beers will be featured in the brewery along with those of Around the Bend Beer Co. and Bold Dog Beer Co.

“Partnering with District Brew Yards allowed Structured to bring our expertise in adaptive reuse to West Town with an innovative project that celebrates the vintage charm of the neighborhood’s historic warehouses while embracing Chicago’s status as the brewing capital of the U.S.,” said Mike Drew, founding principal of Chicago-based Structured Development.

The taproom preserves many of the original design features of the 18,000-square-foot, bow-truss style building. These include refinished concrete floors, exposed brick walls and Douglas fir beams.

J. Michael Drew
Burnt City and partner breweries Around the Bend Beer Co. and Bold Dog Beer Co. each have a dedicated, self-service tap wall that, in addition to pouring 10 of their beer varieties, showcases their respective brands.

In addition, a “Fourth Wall” includes 10 guest taps reserved for established brands and emerging names that will make special varieties in-house. Brew Yards also houses a retail shop and features two original murals: one on the interior by visual artists and illustrators Benjamin Marasco and Erik Lundquist of B&E Studios, and a second – scheduled for completion in May – on the exterior by street artist Lauren Asta.

Ben Saller
“We have an opportunity to have more fun making beer than ever before,” said Ben Saller, head brewer of Burnt City. “What we’ve built at the Brew Yards is basically a playground for experimentation and pushing boundaries.”

Lauren Asta
Among other projects, Structured Development has built the nearly 1 million-square-foot NEWCITY mixed-use complex at Clybourn Avenue and Halsted Street in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, was recently tapped to develop the final phase of Orland Park’s Main Street “Triangle” property.

Benjamin Marasco

 Structured Development will soon break ground on the Shops at Big Deahl, another mixed-use development near NEWCITY whose first phase will include a Planet Granite rock-climbing gym.

District Brew Yards is part of a burgeoning brewing district located adjacent to the Fulton Market District, less than a mile northeast of the United Center and four blocks from the CTA’s Ashland/Lake station. It is easily accessible via the Kennedy and Eisenhower expressways.
