Improving the Facade at Federal Hill in Erie, Pa

Hoffman United purchased multiple units in the up-and-coming Federal Hill neighborhood in December 2017. Over the course of the next year they invested over $100,000 in interior renovations of the 31 residential units which are currently 100% occupied. Units range from one to three-bedrooms with the average rent at $575 with all utilities included. This centrally located property invests in approximately $18,000 in taxes to the City of Erie.

About the neighborhood: A historical sign tells us that Federal Hill, the unofficial name of the incline at West 26th and Peach streets, was named for the large number of so-called Federals who lived there as early as the War of 1812. Read the GoErie Article here.
