90-Year-Old Apartment Complex to See New Life Thanks to City Group - The Vindicator

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp. broke ground Thursday on the renovation of a 90-year-old apartment building in the Glenwood Avenue corridor.

The four-unit apartment at 650 Clearmount Drive was built in 1928 and has been in YNDC possession since 2014. Tiffany Sokol, YNDC’s housing director, said the organization would spend approximately $250,000 renovating the 5,200-square-foot property.

Home Savings and Loan created a loan to finance the project for the YNDC.

The building is red brick and sits at the corner of Clearmount Drive and Glenwood Avenue, four blocks south of Canfield Road.

Sokol said the building would be rented as four units, each with two bedrooms, a bathroom, a second level, formal dining room and a laundry.

“They’re very cool rooms,” Sokol said. “The building is full of great character. We’re excited to have it renovated, and of course we’ll be adding modern upgrades like high-efficiency furnaces to help manage the utility costs associated with the units. Our construction team has done a great job here so far, and we know they’ll do a wonderful job on the renovation.” To read the full story from The Vindicator, click here.
