Award Description: The Garden Valley Phase III initiative will consist of 69 replacement public housing units to be built on the land area between Port Avenue, Carson Avenue, and East 71st and East 73rd Streets in the City of Cleveland?s Kinsman neighborhood. CMHA will relocate residents and demolish 136 units at the site to prepare for this new development. The new development will consist of 69 ACC/LIHTC units in primarily two-story townhouse structures ranging from 4 to 7 units each along with single family detached homes. The project also includes the construction of new streets and related infrastructure improvements. All units will have individual entrances, and all accessible units will be one-story flats. The construction will be wood frame, and each unit will have its own utilities, meters, and heating and air conditioning systems. Parking will be satisfied by a combination of on-street parking and dedicated parking in the form of parking lots. The building envelope is detailed and insulated to achieve an Energy Star rating. The mandatory requirements of the Green Communities will be met. Prior phases of development at the site have been designed to meet the Enterprise Green Building Criteria. The site is compact, walkable, and served by public transportation. It will conserve water use through water conserving appliances, fixtures, and reduce surface water runoff. The use of solar photovoltaic panels will decrease the need to purchase electricity and electric consumption will be reduced by the use of energy star appliances. Building construction will incorporate green building and energy efficiency standards identified in the Enterprise Green Building criteria such as energy star. Construction waste management will be incorporated along with the use of building materials with recycled content. Operations manuals will ensure that these energy saving and green measures are maintained once the buildings are occupied. Indoor air quality will be high through the appropriate use of sealants and the use of low VOC paints and non-vinyl and carpeting flooring materials as well as measures taken to reduce the likelihood of mold. The proposed housing also takes into consideration the requirements of the Ohio Housing Finance Agency and its energy efficiency, visitability, and universal design standards. The unit mix includes 4 1-bedroom 735 square foot accessible units, 35 2-bedroom 1,298 square foot units, 2 2-bedroom 1,002 square foot accessible units, 3 3-bedroom 1,430 square foot units, 18 3-bedroom 1263 square foot unit single family homes, 2 3-bedroom 1,263 square feet accessible units, 3 4-bedroom 1263 square foot unit single family homes, 1 4-bedroom 1,610 square foot units, and 1 4-bedroom 1,529 square foot accessible unit.
