Thanks!  We are super excited about this.   This building lays out in really interesting ways.  So long as we get the tax credits in June (we tied for them last time and didnt get them because we weren't a previous applicant) we can move forward quickly and close in September/October.

Congrats, @jrosen!

For such a modest sidestreet, East 31st is proving to be a real development mecca for housing! 1538 appears to be this building at the corner with Superior....

It wouldn't have been my first choice for an apartments, but I think as Downtown runs out of historic tax credit eligible buildings we're going to see this part of town explode with conversions.

OK, now I'm confused. At first I figured this was the only building close to the address listed that's large enough to accommodate 51 apartments, so it had to be this building. But now I'm not sure. The property at the SW corner of Superior and East 31st lists to VAN KIM ENTERPRISES, L.L.C. as do the two properties south of this parcel. Granted the developer is listed as K1537 E. 31 St., Et. Al -- with emphasis on the "et al" (in other words, others). Stranger still is that the next property south on East 31st has an address of 3611 Payne. Payne?? And none of the properties on the other side of East 31st have structures that are large enough to accommodate 51 apartments.

So it probably is this building on the SW corner of Superior and East 31st. But it isn't as obvious as it usually is.

the building on the corner of payne and 31st is going to be office and warehouse space for a non-profit.  The Mueller team is collectively planning w/ them.  Should be an awesome 1-2 punch of jobs/housing/activity.

^Are they going to punch some windows into that building? In it's current form, it has absolutely zero interaction with the street.

Really wish we had a formal entry way over the street into our Asiatown. That's always such a nice feature in other cities.

^that's a great idea. Although NY's Chinatown doesn't have a permanent "official" entrance, they put up temporary signs like this over the holiday period (both Lunar New Year and Christmas).

Granted, all of these cities have a larger East Asian population than Cleveland. Below are Boston and SF's Chinatown entryways.

There had been some talk about putting a sign on the rail overpass but nothing seems to have come from that.

Below is a screener of a gateway from a 2010 streetscape plan. You can see it in the background, I think that's at about 40th / Superior.

If you're tooling along the main east-west streets, you might never see this reused old factory in a vibrant commercial building. Here's a couple of peeks at this big building...
