Located in the New Indianola Historic District on the border of Weinland Park and the University District, Grant Commons includes the rehabilitation of 23 duplex and rowhouse properties. The buildings were constructed in the 1920’s and acquired by Community Properties of Ohio as part of a larger portfolio of affordable housing properties. Originally planned for demolition, the blighted buildings will instead be
rehabilitated into market-rate apartments through a partnership with Wagenbrenner Development which is currently leading a larger revitalization effort in the Weinland Park neighborhood.
