The first phase of Lyon Homes updates 118 units to preserve this important workforce housing community in Turner Station. Originally opened in 1942, these houses were built for an influx of African-American workers at the nearby steel mill during WWII. The scope of work includes a complete gut-renovation to each unit. Residents remain in the community during construction in temporary units before returning to their renovated home. Some residents have resided in the close-knit community of Lyon Homes for over 60 years.
