Kenmore Place Grand Opening Celebration

Kenmore Place opened its doors to area seniors in Akron after the recent completion of the new $7 million 40-unit community. Built on the site of the former Heminger Elementary School, the three-story building contains twenty one- bedroom apartments and twenty two-bedroom apartments. Kenmore Place is located adjacent to a senior center and features on-site management, a fitness center, a community room, laundry facilities, a computer room, a library, a landscaped courtyard and a rooftop deck.

Developed by Buckeye Community Hope Foundation and East Akron Neighborhood Development Corporation, Kenmore Place features energy-star appliances, emergency call systems, central air conditioning, storage, patios/balconies, washer/dryer hookups, window blinds, and ceiling fans. Buckeye Community Hope Foundation offers service coordinators to assist residents with supportive services.  

Kenmore Place was developed using a combination of Low Income Housing Tax Credits and an equity bridge loan administered through the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, a construction loan provided by FirstMerit Bank, City of Akron HOME funds, and funding from the Ohio Capital Finance Corporation.  Equity investment was provided by Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing.  The project is managed by RLJ Management.
