Kenmore Place  Senior Housing

                Akron, Ohio (September 1, 2015) –Senior citizens are already lining up to pre-lease a unit in the new Kenmore Place, 894 Kenmore Blvd. While the new forty-unit senior housing apartment building is still being constructed, rental applications are now available in the Kenmore Senior Community Center.        

The new building, on the site of the former Heminger School, will be called Kenmore Place and features 20 one-bedroom apartments, 20 two-bedroom apartments, plus two community rooms with additional support spaces. The three story building features an elevator so that all apartments are accessible without stairs. A typical unit will be available for viewing by late October.

Kenmore Councilman Mike Freeman (Ward 9) is energized about the center noting that the building features a tower and covered pathway as a new entry to the Kenmore Senior Community Center, which Freeman says is “a focus of activity for the Kenmore community.”

The City of Akron was instrumental in making the project happen. The City acquired the land from the Akron School Board by trading properties, and then contributing the land, HOME funds, demolition funds, and critical support to make it happen. Mayor Jeff Fusco said: “The City of Akron has been 110% behind this senior housing project from its initial conception and this project would not be here today without the efforts of key city personnel and City Council.”

The project will be owned and managed by Buckeye Community Hope Foundation; a Columbus based nonprofit that specializes in the construction, renovation and management of low income senior housing. The property is being developed and built by Akron based Zumpano + Hanson Development.
