When Genyne Edwards, JD, found the ideal location for her business in April 2015, she took immediate action to purchase the building. Located just north of downtown — less than
a mile from the arena development district — the non-traditional property at 1916 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Drive was exactly what she envisioned for P3 Development Group. P3 is a social solutions design firm that Edwards runs with her business partner, Dominique Samari, JD. The Schunecht building, circa 1874, had been restored for use as an office/residence or duplex. It was move-in ready and in a neighborhood on the brink of revitalization.
“I knew the building and location would be perfect,” Genyne shared. “The current owner was very invested in his property, so we had to move quickly to secure financing.”
According to Genyne, LRC was her first, and only, choice for a lender, and the loan process was timely and seamless.
“P3 was a new firm, so we assumed we’d face difficult hurdles,” Genyne said. “We knew people who were more established than us who’d had challenges with lenders.”She continued, “But LRC immediately got us. They understood what we were all about and what we wanted to accomplish in the community. The missions of our two organizations aligned so well, and we just synced.”
