Concord Housing and Redevelopment purchases 'problem' apartment complex, planning big makeover


CONCORD - An apartment building on Rumford Street that has been deemed a 'problem spot' by neighbors, has been purchased by Concord Housing and Redevelopment for a makeover.

Concord Housing and Redevelopment bought 74 Rumford St., a unit that has has 140 police calls over the last few years, Concord police said.

The property was purchased for $200,000 dollars.

Neighbors had complained about the frequent police activity and it nearly led to an ordinance that would fine landlords for allowing a piece of property to have continuous disruptions.

Most calls were for drug and alcohol disturbances as well as domestic violence incidents.

A tenant in the building tells NH1 News that two of the four units are occupied, the leases are set to expire in December. It's unclear whether the current tenants will be able to renew their lease under the new ownership.
