Jobs Café at Findlay Market Receives a Historic Rehabilitation Award

Jobs Café is a previous PCG investment that has been named a recipient of the 2019 Historic Rehabilitation Awards by the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits. The awards honor outstanding achievement in the rehabilitation of historic properties by recognizing development teams for excellence in the creative use of the Historic Tax Credit.

Winner of the award for Nonresidential Development that Best Exemplifies Community Impact, the Jobs Café at Findlay Market is located within the historic Over-The-Rhine neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio, one of the largest, most intact, nineteenth-century urban historic districts in the US. The project restored nine buildings surrounding the Findlay Market into a mix of affordable housing units, retail, and commercial space. The Jobs Café itself, part of the greater Jobs Café at Findlay Market project, is a social enterprise restaurant concept that provides job training and placement for positions that pay a livable wage with benefits and offer advancement opportunities within the local restaurant industry. Partners for the Common Good worked with the Reinvestment Fund to provide a $3.9 million loan for this ambitious project.
