Requesting RFP for Historic Building

Gabbard Building in downtown Aurora, Indiana.


Owned by the city and demo is very likely by the end of the year.  Aurora 1

14,000 square feet total. The location can’t be beat. It is right on the river along the Ohio River Scenic Byway. There is great potential here, but someone needs to come in and get the back wall stabilized asap.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help – Sedamsville

West Side neighborhood of Sedamsville. This outstanding German Gothic Revival church, built in 1888, features corbelled brickwork, a rose window and a soaring 170’ spire visible. Located on a hillside overlooking River Road, the church is visible from the Ohio River and the Kentucky shore. Vacant since 1989, the church is in deteriorated condition but structurally sound. It needs a new owner who can creatively renovate it for a new use that respects the building and the neighborhood. Our Lady of Perpetual Help was built in 1888. It was designed by Adolph Druiding, who also designed St. Lawrence in Price Hill and the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse in Delhi. The neighborhood is being nominated to the National Register of Historic Places so tax credits may be available for rehabilitation.
