Setty Kuhn set for modernization

The Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) has issued an invitation to bid for the modernization of its 11-building, 64-unit Setty Kuhn Terrace complex in Walnut Hills.

Work will include roof replacement; new kitchens, finishes and mechanicals; the removal of the existing playground; replacement of damaged walks, stairs and hand rails; new landscaping; and upgraded exterior lighting. Four of the units will be remodeled to meet Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards.

The project will be completed in two phases, allowing the complex to maintain at least 50 percent occupancy throughout construction.

Bids are due by 4 P.M. on June 11. Inquiries should be directed to Mike Koch at

Built in 1959 along Mathers and Altoona streets and Walter Avenue, the complex is named after a former member of the Cincinnati Better Housing League who helped found CMHA in the 1930s.
