The City of Struthers has announced plans for the redevelopment of the lots previously used by Center Street School on Center Street on Tuesday.

Center Street School was demolished back in 2003. 20 years later, Dr. Bob Durick is working to transform the vacant lots into a seven-home development in the Nebo Neighborhood of Struthers.

21 News caught up with Dr. Durick who says he owns Uncle Joe's Storage, which was named in honor of his father with two locations in Struthers, one in Campbell and two in New Middletown.

Now it's Durick's mother's turn to be honored with the property being named Mary Lou (Toto) Durick Estates after her. Durick says this will be the first new housing development in at least 40 years.

Durick tells us he's in the middle of negotiations with contractors to build a spec home and that the lots are going to go up for sale from Frank Clinton of Howard Hanna.

At this point, Durick is unsure of a price point on these homes, but estimates they would be in the $200k range. The homes would each be 1,500 to 1,600 square feet and would be one-story homes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Durick tells 21 News the biggest market for these homes include those looking to start a family and senior citizens who are looking for housing other than condos. He added that the housing would add a tax base to the city, which in turn would help the school system.

A ceremony will be held Tuesday evening at 5:30 to unveil the new property.
