The Givner Building project is a mixed-use development currently in construction in the Homewood South neighborhood seeking to strengthen the business district and encourage additional investment in the neighborhood. The development will rehabilitate 627 North Homewood Avenue, effectively creating two new commercial spaces and six affordable residential rental units at a strategic location in Homewood’s Business District.
Historically, the Givner Building has been a key component of Homewood’s Business District. The building formerly housed the WURP Radio Station, a barbershop, a dental office, and the Homewood-Brushton Revitalization & Development Corporation offices until it was recently vacated. The proposed redevelopment will contribute towards the development of the key intersection of N. Homewood Avenue and Kelly Street and anchor a strategically crucial section of the business district with the creation of the new affordable rental units and commercial spaces.
