Construction on Bernard Street New Homes Continues to Progress

Monday, June 24, 2024. 

In April 2024, YNDC and project partners broke ground on the construction of three single family homes that will be located at 1040, 1032, and 1024 Bernard Street. The energy efficient homes will be approximately 1,500 square feet with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, first floor laundry, open concept kitchen and living area, and a two car attached garage. The units will be listed for sale in late summer 2024 and will have a 100 percent fifteen year property tax abatement. YNDC is planning to build three additional homes on the street in a second phase. The broken and failing sidewalks on the street will be replaced along with the street later this summer.

The project is made possible with the funding support of First Ward Councilman Julius Oliver's American Rescue Plan funding . PNC Bank is providing the construction financing for the project. The vacant lots were provided by the Mahoning County Land Bank. The builder for the project is Joe Koch Construction. The project also received support from The Raymond John Wean Foundation, City of Youngstown, and the Glenwood Neighbors Business Association. Many thanks to all involved in making this project possible!
