$8.9 million housing project announced in Warren

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

The city of Warren celebrated the announcement of a multi- million dollar housing investment Thursday night.

Officials said the new senior complex will bring new life to the northwest side of town.

This lot at Parkman Road and Coit Avenue is just a field now, but it won't be empty in June 2016.

Parkman Landing will provide housing for low income tenants ages 55 and up.

"We have some housing that's outdated. Seniors today need more room. We need to have properties that are going to last a lot longer over time," said Donald Emerson, TMHA Executive Director.

The Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority has spent five years rounding up the funds for the $8.9 million project, which includes $6.5 million from the state of Ohio. Warren's mayor hopes the project will bring an improvement to one of the corridors into the city.

"It coincides with a $3.2 million road improvement that we're doing right in front of this complex," said Mayor Doug Franklin. "I think, also, what needs to be mentioned is, it's going to help anchor Parkman Road plaza and the businesses, also along Parkman Road."

Some of the residents that currently live at the Riverview Apartments, will move into Parkman Landing once it's up and running. Then, the Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority will take a look at all the buildings here at this complex and determine which building will be demolished.

TMHA Executive Director, Donald Emerson said all tenants will be accounted for, "We will keep one building up and the remaining residents who need housing will be provided with housing opportunities within our existing portfolio or housing choice vouchers to go into private housing as well."

Emerson plans to break ground on the new facility in January.
