Glenwood Corridor Making Progress, Adding More Homes - WKBN

For five years, the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation has been chipping away at blight and decay on Glenwood Avenue.

Soon, two new buildings will be ready for people to move in. 

YNDC has roamed up and down Glenwood Avenue, tearing down houses, rehabbing buildings and finally, Glenwood Corridor on the city's south side is starting to make a comeback. 

"I think overall the greater Glenwood Corridor has seen quite a bit of improvement. But there's still quite a bit to do," said Ian Beniston, of YNDC

YNDC will open its first commercial building in a few weeks. It's already at 100 percent occupancy.

The large four-plex apartment building at Glenwood and Claremont is almost ready for move in. It too is completely leased.

That success is inspiring others on the street. To read the full story from WKBN, click here.
