Construction has started on the Woodhill Homes, Woodhill Station West, a $46.4 million development representing the first phase of the Buckeye-Woodhill Choice Neighborhoods Implementation.

This phase of the Buckeye-Woodhill Transformation Plan, 9511 Buckeye Rd.,  will convert an empty lot into 120 quality affordable apartments for families and revitalize the Buckeye-Woodhill community.

In 2021, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded a $35 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant to CMHA and the City of Cleveland to support the Buckeye-Woodhill Transformation Plan.

With the support of more than 200 collaborative and community partners, CMHA, the City of Cleveland and TCB are leading the transformation and revitalization of Woodhill Homes and the surrounding Buckeye-Woodhill community. The Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant ensures that equitable neighborhood development in Cleveland becomes a reality in a prime southeast Cleveland neighborhood.

 “This step is monumental in bringing economic growth with new housing, streets, public space, and providing essential resources, programming and support to the families and residents in the neighborhood,” said CMHA CEO Jeffery K. Patterson.

Council President and Ward 6 Councilman Blaine Griffin, a Buckeye resident and staunch advocate for neighborhood revitalization, stated, “With construction underway for the first phase, this entire project will transform a neighborhood, a community that had been left behind. The impact on the neighborhood and the residents cannot be denied.”

Ward 4 Councilwoman Deborah Gray, commented, “This construction, this development, is why I ran for council. This will greatly improve and impact the residents in the neighborhood, and I am committed to ensuring every neighborhood in Ward 4 sees economic and quality of life investments and improvements.”

Council passed several pieces of legislation in the past few years to help ensure the Woodhill development could move forward.
