Osborn Housing Project

The Osborn Neighborhood recently created a neighborhood investment strategy focused on physical development in two target areas: 8 Special Streets and Live in Osborn. The strategy includes a goal to convert 50 units of vacant housing into rental property over the next five years.

This business strategy creates a pathway for Osborn to achieve this goal. Several issues are addressed in the business plan:

• Identifying developers (for-profit or non-profit) that would be interested in owning and operating real estate in Osborn.

• Developing a feasibility model to help developers understand the costs, opportunities, potential risks and rewards of rental ownership.

• Determining the capacity needed to effectively manage a single family rental property portfolio.

• Understanding the costs and resources needed to carry out the plan and to finance development.

• Connecting owners and tenants to neighborhood assets, community resources and support networks to ensure long-term sustainability and success.
