“The HIT’s investment in the rehabilitation of Pinzone Towers is a home run for the building trades here in Cleveland. We built Pinzone almost forty years ago. This rehab will create more jobs for our union brothers and sisters and keep the upgraded apartments affordable for working families.” —Dave Wondolowski, Executive Director, Cleveland Building & Construction Trades Council


The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) is providing approximately $6.6 million of the $12.6 million needed for the substantial rehabilitation of the Pinzone Towers Apartments project (“Pinzone”), located in the city of Rocky River, Ohio, a western suburb of Cleveland. Pinzone provides 100 units of affordable housing for seniors and is owned by an affiliate of the Cleveland Building and construction Trades Council, CBT Development Inc.


The HIT’s purchase of Ginnie Mae construction loan certificates and a permanent loan certificate will help finance the rehabilitation of this union-affiliated project, originally constructed in 1983. As part of its Midwest@Work Initiative, Ohio is a key market for the HIT. Pinzone is the Trust’s third recent investment in Ohio.


Pinzone’s rehabilitation will be performed by 100% union labor. Its affordability for seniors will be protected under a long-term Section 8 contract with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This rehabilitation will result in safe and modern housing for seniors for years to come. Pinzone is in a walkable location, with easy access to retailers and other commercial activity.
