Valley Homes heading for demolition

Fences are up around the Valley Homes complex in Lincoln Heights, and demolition is imminent.

The Model Group previously has announced plans to redevelop the troubled housing complex as Villas of the Valley, a two-phased project that will consist of both senior cottages and housing for families.

The 350-unit Valley Homes project was built during World War II to house principally black workers for the Wright Aeronautical plant, now General Electric.

Cincinnati Preservation Association Preservation Director Margo Warminski has supplied the following photos taken yesterday, April 13, around Medosch Street.
