OhioMultifamily NRP Group to build affordable housing community in Cleveland June 30, 2020 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share via email The NRP Group has been awarded housing credits in a competitive application process administered by the Ohio Finance Housing Agency. The credits will be used to build affordable housing in the Glenville neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. To be developed at East 105th and Churchill Road – on the site of the former Harry E. Davis Elementary School, which has been vacant since 2006 – the project is the first phase of a multi-phase development known as Churchill Gateway, and will consist of a four-story 48-unit apartment building and four townhomes, for a total of 52 units. The one-, two- and three-bedroom units will be affordable to residents at or below 60 percent of area median income. Churchill Gateway will be an anchor development along the East 105th corridor, creating a connection between the Glenville neighborhood to the north and the job center at University Circle to the south. In addition to delivering much-needed new affordable housing to the neighborhood, NRP is collaborating with the City of Cleveland, the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and University Hospitals to develop a 2,500-square-foot Community Outreach Center, which will focus on health education and workforce training. The development partner in the project, University Hospitals, employs more than 28,000 physicians and employees and is located one mile from the Churchill Gateway project. This development provides several other positive outcomes for stakeholders in this previously underserved community. First, through University Hospitals’ involvement in this project, Churchill Gateway provides an opportunity for a major local employer to directly connect with and access local residents to focus on wellness, health education and to recruit potential employees. Additionally, because of Churchill Gateway’s proximity to University Circle, it will also provide an opportunity for residents to enhance their connections to the many cultural, health, educational and civic assets of University Circle and participate in the revitalization of the neighborhood. Finally, there has been relatively few multifamily developments directly outside of University Circle proper, and Churchill Gateway stands to change all that by acting as a catalyst for continued new development in the Circle North neighborhood. Churchill Gateway is expected to be complete in the fall of 2022.
