Union Court Apartments represents a partnership between CHN and the Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority to de-concentrate one of Cleveland’s toughest public housing projects.
In 2002 CHN teamed with Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) and several neighborhood CDCs to de-concentrate Carver Park, a large public housing project in one of Cleveland’s toughest neighborhoods.
CMHA demolished more than 100 units and partnered with CHN to redevelop the units as a mix of multi-family and single-family homes in three Cleveland neighborhoods. One of the first efforts of the partnership was Union Court, a new construction Hope VI project providing 48 homes for very low-income seniors. The three-story apartment building is located in Cleveland’s Mt. Pleasant neighborhood.
CHN also developed 6 new townhomes and 42 single-family homes in Cleveland’s Kinsman neighborhood; and West Side Homes, a 52-unit mixed-income cluster of three historic apartment buildings in the Detroit Shoreway and Ohio City neighborhoods.
Financing for the projects came from Low Income Housing Tax Credits, HOPE VI, tax-exempt bonds, Ohio Housing Development Assistance Program, City of Cleveland (HOME/CDBG funds) and other sources.
