Setty Kuhn Terrace provides 64 apartments and townhomes in 11 two-story buildings located in Cincinnati’s Walnut Hills urban neighborhood. Built in 1959, the development is named for Ms. Setty Kuhn, a community activist and member of the Cincinnati Better Housing League, who helped found the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority in the 1930s.
By 2014, Setty Kuhn Terrace was in dire need of rehabilitation. The entire property was run down, and some of the units were vandalized, vacant, and below standard. CMHA named Titan general contractor on the $4.2 million renovation, the largest project the agency has ever awarded a certified Woman Owned Business. Titan secured a performance bond for the full amount of the contract thanks to our construction experience and strong financial position.
By carefully managing and communicating daily about our schedule, we were able to coordinate with CMHA to move residents in as each unit was completed. In the midst of work, one building suffered a fire unrelated to construction, but Titan was able to accommodate the clean up and additional repairs without significant delay.
Setty Kuhn Terrace was renovated and fully occupied in 16 months, once again providing safe, comfortable, well-built homes for Walnut Hills families. Our project management, workmanship and attention to client service earned us kudos and more projects from CMHA. We like to think Ms. Setty Kuhn would also be pleased with our renovation of her namesake homes.
