Saint Luke's is a transit-oriented project that includes the adaptive reuse of the historic St. Luke’s Hospital building in Cleveland into 137 units of affordable senior housing and a charter school.
- The project will be certified as meeting the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and LEED Silver certification will be pursued upon completion.
- The redevelopment of the hospital is a vital component of Neighborhood Progress Inc.'s overall Strategic Investment Initiative plan for the Buckeye neighborhood.
- Strengths of the Saint Luke’s location as an affordable senior residential community plus charter school include visibility, a generous amount of green space and close proximity to services and public transit.
- St. Luke’s also benefits from proximity to both completed and planned nearby investments including a public school and community library.
- Enterprise Community Loan Fund provided developers Neighborhood Progress Inc. and Pennrose Properties with a $3.2 million loan for the senior housing component of the project.
- Enterprise Community Investment syndicated nearly $11 million in Low-Income Housing Tax Credit and Federal Historic Tax Credit equity for the housing component of the project.
- For the charter school and commercial component of the project, Enterprise Community Loan Fund provided a $3 million loan and Enterprise Community Investment provided an $11 million allocation of New Market Tax Credits.
