Cuyahoga Landbank has partnered with Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) to build two new buildings in the city with the Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 (NSP2) money.
A ground breaking was held this year for the Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) NSP II Program Euclid-Belmore Building. This building is located in East Cleveland on the corner of Euclid and Belmore. There will be a total of 36 units; 30 one-bedroom units and six two-bedroom units. Each unit will have an open floor plan, ample closet space, and generous room sizes. In keeping with the CMHA commitment of serving persons with disabilities, there will be eight units designed for accessibility and comfort for persons with special needs, and handicapped accessible amenities throughout the exterior and interior of the grounds.
The Lee Senior Building is located on the corner of Lee and Miles in Cleveland. This development will be comprised of 40 affordable one and two-bedroom units. These units will include ample parking, onsite laundry, a community room, exercise room, and a warming kitchen. Currently, the plan is to offer 10 two-bedroom units and 30 one-bedroom units that will range from 780 square feet to 1000 square feet. The development of the Lee Road Senior Building will be the catalyst, along with its sister-site, Miles Pointe, that will bring new life to this community.
Both buildings will showcase innovative design features that will compliment the neighborhood. Each building will occupy vacancies on major streets. Most importantly both buildings will provide new housing options to this community thereby meeting the City Planning Commission of Cleveland’s goals of improving the quality of housing.
