Remaining portion of Westlake Terrace development to be razed, new structures built

YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority is seeking funding to demolish the remaining 220 apartments in its Westlake Terrace Homes housing project and replace them with 120 mansion-style and townhouse apartments.

The housing authority hopes to fund the $22.5 million proposal, which would be built in two 60-unit phases over the next several years, with low-income housing tax credits from the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, said Clifford Scott, YMHA director.

The new development would feature a clubhouse, two parking spaces adjacent to each residential unit, and a washer and dryer within each unit, Scott said. Mansion-style dwellings mean two or three residential units in each building, he said.
