The Burnet Place project involved the complete renovation of six existing multi-family buildings on scattered sites in the Cincinnati Uptown Neighborhood. Prior to beginning this project, the area was struggling with a high crime rate in spite of the inherent vitality of the neighborhood. The project was phased so as to avoid permanently displacing any residents by providing temporary housing during the construction period. In addition, the developer provided temporary commercial space for existing business tenants during the duration of the construction process. Undertaken in association with the Uptown Consortium and Model Group, Inc. and under the guidelines of the Green Communities Initiative for affordable housing, this project now provides safe, accessible housing in an environment that “promotes smart growth, public health, energy conservation, operational savings and sustainable building practices in affordable housing design”. Renovated street level commercial units further contribute to the already healthy local economy while generating vital eyes on the street for the residents.
