ONE Neighborhood Builders has recently been approved for funding to upgrade all the 13 buildings at Elmwood Neighborhood Revitalization II (ENR II), including the interiors of the 46 residential apartments.

Due to supply chain issues, we are now targeting May 2024 for the commencement of construction work.

The work will require households to be relocated into a local extended-stay hotel for two to three weeks, depending on the needs of your apartment. Relocation is necessary so that residents will not be exposed to construction hazards as the work progresses. Households will be notified by letter and by phone call to provide details for relocation.

Please check this webpage periodically for updated information and changes to scheduling.

Due to supply chain issues, we are now targeting April 1, 2024 as the commencement of construction work.
