Medina Metropolitan Housing Authority (MMHA) and Miller-Valentine Group, worked with the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, City of Brunswick, and First Merit Bank to bring this remarkable property to fruition.

Southwick Manor is a brand new, maintenance-free, pet-friendly community of 54 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes which were designed to serve adults 55 and over who desire high-quality affordable rental housing.  All apartment homes feature amenities you would expect to find in a luxury apartment home, at an affordable price; spacious floor plans, fully-equipped gourmet kitchens, energy-efficient design and appliances, a laundry room with full-size washer/dryer connections, exceptional closet space, and central air conditioning. Community amenities include a multipurpose room with a kitchen/dining area, business center, media room and fitness center.

Southwick Manor has provided over $4.7 million in income for the local economy.  This includes wages for workers and revenue for local proprietors, small businesses, and corporations. In addition, Southwick Manor generated 81 new jobs during its construction for local contractors and sub-contractors.

Skip Sipos, MMHA Executive Director states, “Southwick Manor is the result of the hard work and determination of many of Medina County’s leaders.  It is because of the collaborative efforts of the City of Brunswick, the County’s business community, and the many local organizations serving Medina County’s seniors that this new building is here.  The best news is it will be here for many, many years providing a wonderful place for the residents to call home.”

Brian McGeady, Partner & President of Miller-Valentine Affordable Housing Development said, “At Miller-Valentine Group we build communities such as Southwick Manor with a vision to provide a high quality of life and peace of mind to each of our residents.
