2014 Building Project Almost Complete!

Lawrence CDC is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis to build new homes in Lawrence in 2014 and 2015.

Between August and October 2014, Habitat’s volunteers, staff, and key contractors have built two new homes on vacant lots on Vernon Avenue where a dilapidated home was demolished several years ago.

We’re grateful for the support of the City of Lawrence and Lawrence Utilities.

Maude Building to be Redeveloped



Lawrence CDC is proud to announce that it will partner with principals of Meyer Najem Construction to redevelop the Maude Building on Lawton Loop at Fort Harrison as market-rate apartments.  This development has received commitments of financial support from Fort Harrison Reuse Authority, Indiana Landmarks, and LISC-Indianapolis.  Originally, the building (and five others like it) served as barracks for enlisted men at Fort Harrison.

The building is named for Lt. Gen. Timothy Maude, an Indianapolis native who spent part of his Army career at the Fort.  He was the highest-ranking military officer killed in the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon.  We are humbled and proud that we have the opportunity to restore a building named for this Hoosier hero.
