Abandoned buildings, decaying properties and vacant spaces bring about all sorts of problems for communities. From an increase in crime to plummeting property values, it’s really something that impacts us all across the board. Luckily, some see these blighted areas as a chance to create a win for everyone. From Houston to Dallas and Austin to Fort Worth… once neglected areas are now thriving places for the community. It’s not just changing the landscape of these cities, but it’s bringing in money for businesses, investors and real estate companies.
