Four New Affordable Housing Projects in Cleveland

Very excited to share the news of the approval of four new affordable housing projects in Cleveland representing a 10-year investment of more than $34 million.  Two of the four projects are in neighborhoods that make up parts of Ward 14 - 1) $5.8 million, 22 new-construction affordable homes, to be built in the the International Village, Dream Neighborhood located in parts of Stockyard and Clark Fulton and 2) $12.8 million new 71-unit Permanent Supportive Housing Project to be built on the site of the former YMCA on Pearl Road in Brooklyn Centre.

The International Village homes will be built on vacant lots in the area within a half-mile radius centered by the Thomas Jefferson Newcomers Academy; bordered by Fulton Road to the east, W. 58th to the West, Train Avenue to the North and Storer Avenue to the South, situated in the Stockyard and Clark Fulton neighborhoods.

These projects represent the results of three to five years of work involving stabilizing these neighborhoods, developing partner relationships and strategies to build on the work we have done in the areas of blight removal through demolition - over 400 homes since 2010, and rehabilitation of more than 140 homes in the Stockyard, Clark Fulton and Brooklyn Centre neighborhoods.
