On Friday, Sept. 3, the Cleveland Planning Commission granted final design approval to 42 new for-sale townhomes slated to be built on the former Saint Luke’s Hospital site in the Buckeye neighborhood. The new development, Entrada at Woodhill Heights, will offer 1,400-1,500 square foot units starting in the low to mid $200,000’s.

It’s a happy ending to a sad, sordid chapter in the city’s history: Cleveland City Council last week voted to use $750,000-800,000 from its Neighborhood Transformation Initiative to help low-income tenants in the city’s Buckeye neighborhood stay in their homes. About 40 lease-purchase renters were defrauded by their former landlord, the Buckeye Shaker Square Development Corporation (BSSDC). The city will provide them with low-dollar mortgages and forgivable down payment assistance so they can become homeowners.
