Ribbon-cutting tomorrow for WIN's latest College Hill homes

Two new single-family homes completed with federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program funding – one new construction and one rehabilitation – will be dedicated tomorrow morning at 10 A.M. at 1142 Cedar Avenue in College Hill.

The newly-built home at 1142 Cedar Avenue, available for $124,900, features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, a full unfinished basement, and an attached two-car garage. The rehabilitated home at 1309 Cedar Avenue, priced at $99,750, has three bedrooms and two baths.

Both offer energy efficient mechanical systems.

The homes are part of Working In Neighborhoods' (WIN) strategy to boost neighborhood homeownership rates by improving the quality of the housing stock on Cedar Avenue and its surrounding streets.

Next year, WIN plans to rehabilitate single-family homes at 1301 Cedar Avenue, 1549 Ambrose Avenue, and 5827 Salvia Avenue. In 2014, it plans to build three new homes at 1208, 1310 and 1323 Cedar Avenue.
