Akron MHA Edgewood Village

About The Project

TC Architects provided architectural services for Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Edgewood Village Hope VI Revitalization project.  The scope included the demolition of the existing Edgewood Homes, 116 units of severely distressed, barrack-style housing, typical of their time period, and several single-family homes. Construction of the new Edgewood Village was completed in four phases.  This project was funded through the tax credit program by OHFA and financed by OCCH.

Phase I consists of 80 new housing units made up of two-, three-, and four-bedroom attached and detached homes.  The new housing is a mix of one- and two-story units, some with basements.

Phase IV is a continuation of Phase I, consisting of 48 new housing units.

Phases II and III consist of a total of 50 affordable rental property units with two- and three-bedroom, generously-sized duplexes and triplexes.

Phase V provides 48-units in a four-story structure.

The total number of affordable housing units in Edgewood Village – Hope VI is 226.

This 24-acre area has been reconfigured into a traditional neighborhood grid pattern of streets and parks based on the Principles for Inner City Neighborhood Design, developed jointly by HUD and The Congress for New Urbanism.  In addition, the design incorporates the AIA’s 10 Principles for Livable Communities, which “improve livability and the quality of life.”
