Outhwaite Housing Complex
The historic Outhwaite Homes public housing complex in Cleveland, Ohio was constructed with the assistance of federal Public Works Administration (P.W.A.) funds.
“The Outhwaite Homes Estates, along with the Cedar Apartments and Lakeview Terrace, were the first three public housing projects to be completed in Cleveland. The three projects were also among the first in the nation to receive approval and funding from the federal government’s newly-created Public Works Administration in 1935.
Outhwaite’s brick Art Deco buildings, grouped around grassy courtyards, originally contained 557 units.”
