This project demonstrates how collaboration can create mixed-rate housing and preserve neighborhood character.

Baymiller Open House
Thursday, April 8th, 10a – Noon.

As development continues in Cincinnati’s historic West End neighborhood, residents and housing advocates have been working to ensure that creation and preservation of affordable housing is part of the equation. A set of historic rowhouses in Cincinnati’s West End is being redeveloped as a combination of affordable and market-rate, rental and homeownership.

1803 and 1807 Baymiller are being rehabbed by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati. 1805 Baymiller is being developed by Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses as an affordable rental unit, with Habitat as the general contractor.

This open house will provide a chance to see and capture the early stages of renovation and talk to the various partners.

This collaboration responds to the critical need for equitable housing in the West End, long identified by West End by community organizations and planners. For example, the project dovetails with three of the housing goals of the West End Speaks Plan (2016): the condition of all West End properties is improved; the quality of affordable units in the West End is upgraded; the West End supports the expansion of homeownership in the neighborhood.
