Ribbon Cutting Event at St. John’s Village West

Friday, August 24th, 2012

BBC and our partners hosted a Ribbon Cutting event for St. John’s Village West – Family Homes Thursday August 23, 2012 on E. 39th St.

On a bright and sunny afternoon, with over 100 residents in attendance, we gave a first look at the largest single family home development this year in  Cleveland.  St. John’s Village West – Family Homes is a newly created housing development of 40 homes which are designed to be Lease – to – Purchase for first time homeowners in the Central Community. This project transformed one of the hardest hit areas of the mortgage and financial crisis to a beautiful quiet residential neighborhood close to public transportation, schools,  the Sterling Branch Library, as well as downtown.

In attendance were our project partners: PNC Bank, Pirhl Developers, and Cleveland Housing Network, local government officials; Mayor Frank Jackson, Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, and a representative from Senator Sherrod Brown’s Office, not to mention our new and existing residents of the neighborhood including; The Love family (one of the first family’s to join SJVW), and Mr. Larry Jones II.

We are very excited about the completion of construction in the neighborhood, which should be happening within the next month or two, and are very grateful to all who attended.

Thank you for your continued support.
