Abington Race and Pleasant Apartments consists of five historic buildings in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of downtown Cincinnati. The buildings include 50 affordable housing units for families at or below 50-60 percent of the area median income (AMI), and five commercial spaces.

Last renovated in February 2018, Abington Race and Pleasant Apartments is Enterprise Green Communities and LEED for HOMES certified.

Abington Race and Pleasant is one of 18 properties in the Cincinnati area acquired by POAH from The Model Group in May 2018.  This acquisition preserved 1,100 rental apartments at a time when the neighborhood was seeing significant investments in infrastructure, new public transportation options, and an expansion of the district’s art and dining scene. This ensured the units would remain affordable long-term and allow residents of all income levels to participate in the economic renaissance of the neighborhood. POAH Communities will also implement a Community Impact program across the portfolio to help residents succeed, with outcome-driven resident services that foster financial stability, health and education.
