YOUNGSTOWN — The city’s Design Review Commission approved today the design and development of the $20 million to $22 million demolition and replacement of the Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Westlake Terrace housing project.
The plan is to replace Westlake Terrace with the 120-rental-unit Village at Arlington. The low-income project will be townhouses on a location between Madison Avenue, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Griffith Street.
Demolition is to begin in 60 to 75 days, said Clifford Scott, YMHA’s executive director. Demolition will take five to six months.
Construction on the new buildings will begin early next year and take about 18 months to complete, Scott said.
