Development will bring mixed-income housing and critical support services to the Glenville neighborhood of Cleveland

CLEVELAND, May 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The NRP Group, a vertically-integrated, best-in-class developer, builder and manager of multifamily housing, has officially broken ground on a 52-unit mixed-income multifamily community in the Glenville neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio.

The four-story, 52-unit apartment building located at East 105th and Churchill Road will include one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, as well as four built-in, three-bedroom townhomes. All apartment homes will be available to individuals and families earning 60 percent or less than the Area Median Income (AMI).

The Davis Apartments will be developed in collaboration with University Hospitals, one of the nation’s leading health care systems. This development is the third “health and housing” project spearheaded by NRP to improve Social Determinants Of Health (SDOH) in underserved neighborhoods by partnering with hospitals, nonprofits and municipalities. The first health and housing development, Residences at Career Gateway in Columbus, Ohio, opened in 2018; the second, Via Sana in the ClarkFulton neighborhood of Cleveland, is scheduled to open in 2022.

“By viewing the neighborhood itself as a patient to be healed, health and housing developments provide high-quality affordable housing as a means to bring critical supportive services to both residents and the broader community,” said Scott Skinner, Vice President of Development at The NRP Group. “These services, such as career development training, health screenings and financial literacy, are not readily available within many underserved neighborhoods. We look forward to working with the City of Cleveland and University Hospitals to bring this project to fruition and to address the most pressing needs of the Glenville community.”

With headquarters located just one mile from The Davis Apartments, University Hospitals will collaborate with NRP to offer health and wellness education and programming that will be open to the broader community. In addition, NRP will develop a 2,800-square-foot Community Outreach Center that University Hospitals will utilize to provide preventative healthcare and SDOH solutions such as healthy cooking demonstrations, food pantry services, programs for pregnant women and young mothers, programs to fight senior citizen isolation, telehealth services, and workforce and financial literacy training. University Hospitals’ goal with this development is to actively engage with local Cleveland neighborhoods by reaching beyond its four walls to address key SDOH in disinvested communities.

“As an anchor institution, one that has been deeply rooted in this community for 155 years, University Hospitals holds dearly our responsibility to care for our community. At University Hospitals, improving the health of the people we serve and the communities in which they live is our priority,” said Dr. Daniel Simon, President, Academic & External Affairs and Chief Scientific Officer, University Hospitals. “We are pleased to collaborate with The NRP Group to further revitalize the area and provide quality housing and services to residents. We are confident this new community will bring significant and lasting benefits to the Glenville neighborhood.”

The Glenville neighborhood is part of Cleveland’s Neighborhood Transformation Initiative, a city-wide effort to spur economic growth through healthy, sustainable, and equitable opportunities to build wealth and stabilize historically fringed neighborhoods. Glenville is less than one mile from University Circle, which is home to Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and dozens of shops, restaurants and grocers. The Davis Apartments’ proximity to these anchor institutions and job opportunities creates a strong foundation to build upon and an opportunity to make those institutions and jobs more accessible to people of all income levels.

Skinner added, “The City of Cleveland played a crucial role in collaborating with our team and University Hospitals to help bring this project to fruition. NRP worked directly with the City’s Community Development department to prepare the site for The Davis Apartments. We’re incredibly grateful to our partners at the City of Cleveland for their tireless work on this development.”

The Davis Apartments is named after Harry E. Davis, a Cleveland native who served four consecutive terms in the Ohio State House before becoming the first African American member of the Cleveland Civil Service Commission and serving as an Ohio State Senator.

Early lease-up of the community is expected to occur in 2023, with a completion date slated for 2024.
