From WLWT 5 Cincinnati:
A massive renovation is underway for two historic apartment buildings in East Walnut Hills.
The $38 million project will upgrade more than 100 units throughout the Riverview and San Marco.
The renovations will include new flooring, appliances and renovated bathrooms and kitchens, all while remaining affordable.
The Riverview is a nine-floor building built in 1902 with 110 units. San Marco, in the heart of the East Walnut Hills business district, was built as a seven-floor hotel in 1930 and converted to 30 residential units in the 1960s.
Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority will begin construction in August.
"Closing on this latest Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) project continues our commitment to invest one billion dollars in our affordable housing portfolio," says Gregory D. Johnson, CMHA's chief executive officer. "Residents of Hamilton County deserve quality affordable housing, and we're delivering."
