We are pleased to announce that we have purchased our third building, located on Pierce Street in downtown Lewiston. It is almost directly between The Root Cellar and the site where the St. Laurent development is beginning new construction! The property includes 9 residential apartments. We are currently planning improvements to the property.
Applications for New Members
We are always accepting online applications for membership and they are processed in the order they are received. We will not begin interviewing prospective members until we have habitable and vacant units to lease. Currently, the Raise-Op has no vacant units to offer.
