I am not 100% familiar with what CHA / Homeport really does other then affordable housing.
From the article:
One thing that has already been ruled out for the project is an affordable housing element – the plan at this point is for the residential products to be market-rate. That would put the Barrett project in the same category as Homeport’s Rich Street Walk development, which featured market-rate condos and was used to fund the organization’s other projects.

The Dispatch article from 10/20/15 doesn’t say that the Barrett Middle School site will be affordable:
“Fourteen groups will be outlining their commitments. Among the strategies:
-Developing 250 affordable rental units for low-income households.
-Building 30 new houses through Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio.
-Developing 106 apartments and 22 townhomes at the Barrett Middle School site in Merion Village through Homeport, a nonprofit development company, and Casto, a for-profit company.
-Completing 40 home rehabilitations, including duplexes, in the Hungarian Village and Reeb-Hosack neighborhoods.”November 6, 2015 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #1100760
Great update on Barrett, including pricing. Delivery for apartments set for next summer followed by homes in 2017.
The transformation of the 1896 school, 345 E. Deshler Ave., will be accompanied by the construction of another 52 one- and two-bedroom apartments on the school’s former playground area. The $17 million undertaking is expected to be finished next summer. Apartment prices in the school and the new-builds start at $899 for one bedroom and $1,299 for two bedrooms.
That first phase will be followed by the construction of 22 single-family homes on the former ballfields just to the east of the school, which will range from 1,700 to 2,000 square feet with two-car garages. Prices will be in the $350,000 range and the homes are expected to be ready by summer 2017.November 6, 2015 4:20 pm at 4:20 pm #1100761
I think I was confused because it was in an article about affordable housing.
