The Homes on Baldwin


Are you a member of the creative class? That group of people that social scientist Dr. Richard Florida, believes are a key driving force for economic development of post-industrial cities such as Youngstown.

Granted many of members of the creative class love the notion of rehabilitating an old building or living in a central downtown, but there are just as many who would like to expend their energy researching and designing new products or technology and simply would like to live in a new home that requires few repairs or trouble and that has lower utility bills than the older homes in the area.

Commonwealth Inc. has just those kind of homes available. The homes on Baldwin are affordable, three bedroom, energy efficient, and have two floors,an attached two car garage, air conditioning, range, fridge, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, ceramic tile, carpeting and 1 1/2 baths. Monthly payments are under $500.00 and there are down payment grants available as well as a 15 year tax abatement.

The homes are within walking distance of the beautiful 34 acre Wick Park as well as within walking distance of Youngstown State University, St. Elizabeth Hospital, and downtown Youngstown. The Wick Park neighborhood is of strategic importance in the citywide plan Youngstown 2010 and is one of six neighborhoods targeted for improvements this year.

So if you're looking for a new home in a upcoming and hip area at a good price, come to 113 and 106 Baldwin Street, Youngstown on Sunday September 28Th from 1:00 - 3:00 for an open house. Tour the house and enter a drawing to win a gas card or new bike. If you have questions about the property call (330) 726-8888.
