Notre Dame seniors refurbish houses to provide off-campus student housing

first_imgWith the help of an investor, seniors Tom Taylor and John Kennedy purchased three unoccupied houses adjacent to their off-campus residence, refurbished them and are planning on renting them to other Notre Dame students through three limited liability corporations (LLC).“We’re both business guys, and we’ve always talked about projects and different endeavors aside from our primary jobs,” said Taylor. “We were sitting in our house one day, looking at houses around us — which are unoccupied — and we started digging. We lived in a house and know how fun it can be, and [we] wanted to maximize that for other people.”Eventually, Taylor and Kennedy found out St. Joseph County owned the three houses, and after several months of negotiating with the county, the houses were sold at auction on February 21 of this year. Taylor and Kennedy won the auction with the help of an investor, who wished to remain anonymous.“Since then, we’ve been putting in a lot of work to get them renovated [from] top to bottom,” Kennedy said.The process of renovating the houses is “going great,” Taylor said. Although the houses did not need a full renovation, the pair decided that they would “start over” with each house.“We wanted to make them perfect,” Kennedy said.Kennedy and Taylor said they wanted to make the houses into “something that college students want to live in.” Though they are not tailoring the houses toward parents, another mental test they are using is to consider what a parent walking through the house would think. The houses will be ready in August, before the start of the school year.Taylor and Kennedy said their own experiences living off campus had inspired them to take on this project.“We’ve done both apartment and house,” Taylor said. “What we wanted to do was to give people the good part of what we had and get rid of the bad parts, such as problems with heating, drains, and things falling apart.”Kennedy said the pair wanted to “remove the headache.”The two also hoped to alleviate the shortage of off-campus housing, noting that their current house is already rented out to current freshmen for their senior year. They believe the houses’ 20 collective bedrooms will provide “a huge injection.”For Taylor and Kennedy, the main attraction of the houses is the large backyard the three houses and the pair’s current residence share. They joked that they might entitle their enterprise “Madison Garden Estates,” given that the houses are located one mile south of campus at the corners of North Francis and East Madison streets.Kennedy said the neighbors have reacted well to the development.“We never had a problem with neighbors,” he said. “They have been very positive. The houses were not occupied, so the neighbors are excited to see neighborhood looking good again.”Each house will have its own LLC, and the pair plan on hiring a property manager for each one. In the project’s first few years, however, Taylor and Kennedy anticipate playing a big role in the renting process.Kennedy said they also wouldn’t rule out an expansion of their business.“It’s a possibility,” he said. “This is a good market to be in. We could use proceeds to do more investments in South Bend and elsewhere.”Taylor said he and Kennedy are excited to contribute to improving the South Bend community.“We’re big fans of South Bend, we think it’s on the rise and want to be a part of it,” he said. “We want to look back on rise of South Bend and see that we were a part of it.”Tags: off-campus housing, renovating, South Bend, student houseslast_img read more

Imperial dd guarantees a minimum net income in the amount of HRK 5.000

first_imgImperial will pay a Christmas bonus and holiday pay in the amount of HRK 2.000 to all permanent employees. Christmas bonus and seasonal allowance will be paid up to the amount of 2.000 kuna, in proportion to the length of employment. Imperial will pay a special bonus of HRK 500 net to all employees with a salary for the month of July. “We are glad that the decision to increase the material rights of workers was approved and satisfied by the Croatian Trade Union of Tourism and Services and SIKD, which is the result of mutual understanding and respect for the views of the social partners. We will continue such cooperation in the future. We are also satisfied with the fact that a large number of employees are returning to us, and this salary increase will be an additional motive for all Imperial employees. ” pointed out Vlado Miš, President of the Management Board of Imperial dd Imperial gives its employees, during the 2019 season, starting from May to the end of August, a guarantee of a minimum net income of HRK 5.000 for all employees who work a full monthly fund of hours. All other employees who have a net income of more than HRK 5.000 up to HRK 6.500 net, will be paid a bonus for the season, which will be applied in the period from May to the end of August, in the total amount of up to HRK 2.000 net. The best employees (permanent, seasonal or student) will be stimulated by additional net income per month. „Ovo je značajan napredak u cilju većeg zadovoljstva radnika i osiguranja dovoljnog broja sezonskih radnika. Smatram da smo svi svjesni da se sa povećanjem materijalnih i drugih uvjeta za radnike u turizmu treba nastaviti i u narednim godinama kako bi se zadržali postojeći radnici i osigurali novi za buduće razvojne projekte. Na tome je velika odgovornost poslodavaca ali i sindikata, a očekuje se i doprinos  zakonodavca na dodatnom poreznom rasterećenju plaća“, said Stanisa Borovic, president of the STUH branch and president of the Imperial Workers’ Council. Imperial dd Rab, in agreement with the Trade Union of Tourism and Services of Croatia and the Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia, provided its employees with new material rights in 2019.center_img Imperial offers its employees excellent career development opportunities, with a developed system of internal and external education and training in cooperation with Valamar. Our employees, together with our guests, are always in the first place, and their satisfaction is important for long-term business success. Biserka Novotny, president of SIKD in Imperial, emphasized the importance of such measures, especially due to the problem of lack of tourist workers and the departure of young people outside Croatia: “Only with decent salaries and other working conditions can we keep the existing ones and attract new workers, and create additional motives for young people to choose tourism professions. In that direction, we will continue the constructive social dialogue with the employer so far” Imperial is in the phase of intensive development and this year, with 140 million kuna of investments, it is the largest investor in Kvarner tourism. This year’s investments of Imperial will ensure the creation of 60 new jobs, and this year Imperial will employ a total of 670 workers.last_img read more
