An Iconic Hospital Transformed into Affordable Homes for Seniors in Cleveland

The historic Saint Luke’s Hospital (Saint Luke’s) was once an anchor institution of the Buckeye neighborhood in Cleveland, but it sat vacant for over a decade following its closure in 1999. Today, Saint Luke’s is teeming with life and hope after its transformation into a multigenerational living and learning campus.

New Village Capital, a subsidiary of Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, partnered with Pennrose to redevelop Saint Luke’s through the creation of Saint Luke’s Housing Partnership. The three-phase project involved the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of Saint Luke’s Hospital into 137 affordable senior apartments, two market rate apartments and a 70,000-square-foot Learning Campus comprised of commercial and office space now utilized by a number of nonprofit organizations.

Enterprise Community Loan Fund, Inc. provided more than $5 million in financing throughout various phases of the Saint Luke’s Hospital rehabilitation.
