Clarett buys South Side office building

Staff report


Maurice Clarett has purchased the property at 420 Oak Hill Ave. from Youngstown Ohio PSC, LLC.

The South Side office building, which has nearly 30,000 square feet, was purchased Tuesday for $150,000.

“Youngstown has given me so many things in my life,” Clarett said. “I’m committed to doing what I can to give back to this city and this community while helping to rebuild lives and strengthen our community. I hope to be able to announce future plans for this space in the coming months.”

In 2016, Clarett, a former Ohio State University football running back, founded The Red Zone – a behavioral health agency that provides mental health, recovery and school-based social services to both adults and children. The Red Zone has offices in Youngstown and Columbus and employs nearly 100 people.

The Red Zone is headquartered less than two blocks from the Oak Hill building at 209 W. Woodland Ave.

While the Oak Hill building will be renovated, final plans for what will eventually occupy the space have not been finalized.
