A homebuilding program set to launch next month in Ohio City aims to make new construction swifter and simpler for people hoping to live in one of Cleveland’s most popular neighborhoods.
Nonprofit neighborhood group Ohio City, Inc., and Knez Homes are teaming up to offer buyers ready-to-build lots where all the bureaucratic boxes have all been checked.
The partners have lined up 18 lots owned by the city’s land bank, in scattered locations outside of Ohio City’s core historic district, largely south of Lorain Avenue. Homebuyers participating in the program will pick from a menu of three facades and floor plans – all pre-approved by various review bodies at Cleveland City Hall.
