Lucas Metropolitan Housing to purchase United Way building


TOLEDO, June 1, 2021: Lucas Metropolitan Housing Board of Commissioners has voted to authorize the execution of a purchase agreement for 424 Jackson Street in Toledo, Ohio.  The building is currently occupied by United Way of Greater Toledo.  


LMH is purchasing the building because downtown Toledo is a better location to serve the clients of LMH—with convenient free surface parking and TARTA bus access.  With this acquisition, LMH will consolidate the offices at 211 South Byrne, 201 Belmont, and 435 Nebraska into a single office space.  Approximately eighty employees are expected to be affected by this move.


According to Joaquin Cintron Vega, President and CEO of LMH, “Consolidating staff into one location has been a goal of LMH for many years. By acquiring this building, it will bring the entire administrative team under one roof. In addition to operational cost savings, it will allow for greater collaboration and teamwork among the staff. Additionally, this downtown location allows for better access to LMH by guests and clients with the availability of close transit access and free parking in the adjacent parking garage. Because many of our partners are located in the central business district, the proximity to their operations will strengthen our existing relationships and allow for new relationships to be formed.”  


Design work is being completed by the local architect and planning firm The Collaborative. A construction manager at risk will be named at a later date. Closing is expected to happen in the fourth quarter of 2021 with occupancy expected in the first quarter of 2022.


According to Cintron Vega, “Without housing, families lack the foundation on which to build a solid future. Our housing programs, and the active partnerships we maintain with dozens of nonprofit and government agencies, address basic human needs, mental and physical health, education, financial self-sufficiency, and workforce and community development to create the platform for individuals and families seeking a better quality of life. We are thrilled for the opportunity to carry forth transformative, mission-driven work at 424 Jackson Street now and into the future.”
