Five Ways Cuyahoga Land Bank Works to Revitalize Northeast Ohio

Cuyahoga Land Bank isn’t just about demolition or renovating or building houses. Our mission to stabilize communities, reduce blight and improve quality of life for Cuyahoga County residents is about building opportunities. We’re a catalyst for positive change in neighborhoods where development has often been overlooked. Here’s how we achieve that:

1. Quality Homes at Affordable Prices

We develop high-quality, affordable homes in areas ripe for revitalization. These aren’t just cookie-cutter builds. We’re talking modern designs, energy-efficient features like solar panels, and all the amenities you’d expect at a price that makes homeownership a reality for many.

2. Spurring Investment and Development

Our revitalization efforts have a domino effect. New, beautiful homes attract new residents, which in turn attracts businesses and further investment. This creates a thriving, vibrant community where everyone benefits.

3. Northeast Ohio’s Economic Engine

By revitalizing neighborhoods, we’re boosting the entire region’s economic engine. New homeowners mean new tax dollars that can be reinvested in infrastructure and services, making Northeast Ohio an even more attractive place to live, work and play.

4. More Than Just a House: A Community

We understand that people want more than just four walls and a roof. That’s why we often focus on areas close to essential amenities like parks, shopping and universities like the exciting Beulah Avenue project near Case Western Reserve University (see below). This creates a desirable community for everyone, from young professionals to families.

5. Empowering Realtors

We’re committed to building strong partnerships with local realtors. We offer free CEU opportunities to educate them on these up-and-coming neighborhoods and the unique selling points of sustainable homes, like solar panels. This ensures they have the expertise to guide potential buyers towards these exciting opportunities confidently.

The Beulah Avenue Example

Our project on Beulah Avenue in Cleveland’s Glenville neighborhood is a shining example of our work. We’re building three brand new homes on adjacent lots in an area that’s been waiting for investment for far too long. This project, along with the many available development lots (remnants of demolition of blighted homes), paves the way for a transformation of the neighborhood. The 1,850 square feet modern colonial style homes boast three-bedroom, three full baths and two-car garages. One of the homes features the latest in solar panel technology.
