OMG, at Sun Newspapers a decade ago we were covering the possibility of the renovation of the long-closed Aragon Ballroom on West 25th Street near Clark Avenue. So it's great to finally see the project move forward.....

And another project nearby? Usually you don't see Landmark status for an old warehouse unless you plan on renovating it -- and need the historic tax credits to help finance it. So......

Glad to see the renovations into Elk & Elk offices (even if I don't care for ambulance chasers) and especially the Masonic Temple rehab. Marous was due to rehab that building shortly before the recession, but the recession killed it.

I'm going to post this in here. The developer lists it as Tremont, but it's a few roads past the quite liberal southern neighborhood boundaries. I thought I remembered reading about the Metro Lofts, 3307 Scranton Rd, (Great Crash casualty?) but there are four units for sale out of 21 possible currently and reasonably priced. I just happened to run across them while searching for possible homes.

Yep, Metro Lofts are in Tremont CDC's planning area.

So are we following Lebron from Miami-Ft Lauderdale back to Cleveland? If so, cool. If you need any help, feel free to post in the Cleveland Relocation thread. Thanks!

So tying this into other threads, they must have gotten financing that required them to stay rentals for a certain number of years before they could convert to sales? They seem really cute.

MetroHealth's ambitious campus makeover may be push West 25th Street needs
By JAY MILLER
Originally Published: August 03, 2014 4:30 AM  Modified: August 04, 2014 4:24 PM

The decision to make over MetroHealth Medical Center on Cleveland's West Side may just be the spur that gets the neighborhood surrounding the public hospital to take off.

The neighborhood, with West 25th Street as its spine, has been treading water for years. Although it has a sturdy housing stock comprised of homes built in the decades before the recession, the miseries that have beset so many parts of Cleveland — a decline in the public schools, the lure of newer suburban housing and, early on, freeways that chopped up neighborhoods — cost the neighborhood its vitality and led to a fleeing middle class.

Now, though, nearby city neighborhoods have rebounded, and city leaders and planners think this area has a chance to be the next Ohio City or Tremont. And, unlike in the past, MetroHealth is turning outward to embrace the neighborhood as it remakes its campus, instead of turning its back, as it had done in the past.

Board of Zoning Appeals
APRIL 20, 2015

9:30
Calendar No. 15-023: 3179 West 25 Street Ward 14
Brian Cummins
18 Notices

Woodland Inc. (aka Ali Farai) proposes to establish use of 16,698 square foot building as a
banquet/assembly hall in a C2 Local Retail Business District and a Pedestrian Retail Overlay District
(PRO). The owner appeals for relief from the following sections of the Cleveland Codified
Ordinances:
1. Section 343.01(b) which states that a banquet hall is not permitted in a Local Retail Business
District.
2. Section 343.11(b)(2)(L) which state that a banquet hall is first permitted in a General Retail
Business District only if 500 feet away from a residential district per Section 347.12 (a)(1).
Proposed use abuts a residential District.
3. Section 349.04(e) which states that an accessory off-street parking area equal to three times
the gross floor area is required and none are provided.
4. Section 357.02 which states that a nonconforming use of a building or premises which has
been discontinued shall not thereafter be returned to such nonconforming use. A
nonconforming use shall be considered discontinued: (1) When the intent of the owner to
discontinue the use is express; or (2) When the use is voluntarily discontinued for six (6)
months or more. The intent to voluntarily discontinue a use may be implied from acts or the
failure to act, including, but not limited to, the removal of and failure to replace the
characteristic equipment and furnishings; or (3) The cessation of business operations for
two (2) years or more unless the cessation of business operations was caused by factors out
of the control of the business such as the disability or illness of the proprietor or
governmental action unrelated to the behavior of the business.
5. Section 352.08 through 352.12 which states that a ten foot wide landscaped transition strip
providing 75% year round opacity is required at the rear of the property where it abuts a
residential district.
6. Section 343.23(h) which states that in a Pedestrian Retail Overlay District for any
nonresidential building or storefront facing a Pedestrian Retail Street Frontage, not less than
sixty percent (60%) of the front façade between two and one-half (2 ½) and seven and onehalf
(7-1/2) feet in height shall be composed of transparent windows or doors. (Filed February

Apparently there's been some negative comments about the Aragon project in the community. So its important for people to show up at an upcoming public meeting and keep an on news coverage (and those anonymous comments in opposition):

Why? What's the problem? I don't know anything about this project except that Councilman Cummins supports it, and he's usually had pretty good judgement. Why don't you like the project @MayDay?

EDIT1: Or does anyone have any info about the downsides of this project? Is it the proposed use? The owner? The architect? Something else??

EDIT2: Apparently the concerns are limited to the availability of parking and that the establishment would have a liquor license. Whether you support or oppose the project, or better still have ideas on how to improve it, I hope you'll show up at the public meeting (see my prior message).

The downsides are the occupancy limits (1,200 people), hours of operation, the liquor license (if it's truly a conference/event center, it wouldn't need one as long as events aren't open to the general public), the closest homes are 12 feet from the building, and the planned valet parking sounds great - if it weren't for the fact Lincoln-West and West 25th will be construction zones pretty soon.

I hope you can attend a public meeting. You always have good ideas on how to improve site plans. The alternative of letting this building (vacant for 20 years) continue to rot is equally not viable.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm curious about this He has owned the adjacent parcels for at least 10 years. Wonder what he's interested in. One of the adjacent parcels that he owns had a small convenient store in it which closed shortly after the owner was (fatally?) shot in a robbery in 2001/2003.

3217 was also the location of 'Sam's showbar' which I was a strip club.

Looks like a graphics communications union based in Cincinnati owns the building next door, at 3227 West 25th. Parcels south of that are owned by Nagi Abdelkarim.

Low-income housing tax credits pave way for two residential projects in Cleveland
June 22, 2015
By STAN BULLARD   

The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization and Cleveland Housing Network plan to undertake housing projects in Cleveland after receiving allocations of U.S. low-income housing tax credits administered by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency.

Detroit Shoreway and Cleveland Housing Network announced separately on Friday, June 19, that they had received allocations that will allow them to undertake, respectively, a $9 million conversion of the former Lion Knitting Mills Building, on West 25th Street at Meyer Avenue, and to construct an apartment for the elderly dubbed “Heritage Housing” on a site on East 97th Street north of Chester Avenue.

Lion Knitting will be converted into 36 loft-style units with affordable rents. The structure dates from 1919 and housed a garment firm that closed in 1990. Detroit Shoreway’s news release noted support from Dr. Akram Boutros, CEO of MetroHealth, and that of other officials as helpful in securing the award.

A small project, but a big victory in having a building renovated rather than demolished. This heavily Latino stretch of Fulton, although low/working-class, is active and populated so more affordable housing is a good thing. The building is the two-story box-shaped structure with white siding...

More details on the Lion Knitting development from a non-copyrighted blog/press release....

DETROIT SHOREWAY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT OFFICE

For Immediate Release
Contact: Greg Baron
gbaron@dscdo.org
 cell:  (216) 409-4801
June 19, 2015

Clark-Fulton, Cleveland, OH - The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization (DSCDO) is pleased to announce that the Lofts at Lion Mills project has been awarded Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) funding for 2015 by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency.

 The project is one of only three projects in Cuyahoga County to receive LIHTC funding for 2015. DSCDO is the only real estate developer in Cleveland, both non-profit and private, to receive LIHTC funding three years in a row.

 The $9 million project is an adaptive reuse of a mostly vacant commercial structure to create thirty-six (36) loft-style units with affordable rents. Additional amenities include eighteen (18) parking spaces, an elevator, a laundry facility, a community room, and open-concept floor plans.

 The building was originally constructed for the Lion Knitting Mills in 1919, which produced knitted goods for the military and private labels for 78 years. Due to foreign competition, the company closed down in 1990.

 The building was later occupied by Kredo Industrial Supply and has since been used primarily for storage. The building is scheduled to be added to the National Register of Historic Places and federal historic tax credits will help finance the rehabilitation.

 The building is located at the intersection of West 25th Street and Meyer Avenue, two blocks north of MetroHealth Hospital, the largest employer on the West Side of Cleveland with 6,000 jobs, and will support MetroHealth’s $1.2 billion campus transformation.

 Other recent investments on West 25th Street
•$50 million Nestlé Professional™North America expansion, which retains a Fortune 500 company and its 200 jobs in the community;
•$1.5 million Aragon Ballroom project which will turn the historic ballroom into a banquet center for weddings and corporate events;
•$200,000 "W25 Big Gig" project by One Community which will bring high speed fiber optic cable to the West 25th Street/Pearl Road Corridor from Detroit Avenue to State Road (funding for the project is provided by Councilmen Cummins, Cimperman, Brancatelli, and Kelley).
 
Lofts at Lion Mills, 3256 West 25th Street, Cleveland Ohio 44109

The Lofts at Lion Mills is at the southern end of the La Villa Hispana (“The Hispanic Village”) district which is centered around the West 25th St. & Clark Ave. intersection. The neighborhood has the highest density Latino population in the State of Ohio, and project partners in developing La Villa Hispana include the Hispanic Business Center, the Hispanic Alliance, MetroHealth, the Stockyard, Clark-Fulton & Brooklyn Centre Community Development Office (SCFBC) and others.
 
 Mayor Frank Jackson designated the Lofts at Lion Mills project as one of three citywide “priority” projects recommended to the Ohio Housing Finance Agency for low income housing tax credits. This designation helped the project receive bonus points in scoring.

 The support of Dr. Akram Boutros, President and Chief Executive Officer of MetroHealth, was also critical to the project receiving funding. Councilman Brian Cummins has played a key role in the development of this project through his leadership and funding in helping DSCDO open a satellite office in July 2010 on Fulton Road to serve the neighborhoods of Stockyards, Clark-Fulton, and Brooklyn Centre.

 Councilman Cummins and the SCFBC community development office have helped get 300 vacant and abandoned houses demolished in the past 5 years, and another 100 vacant and abandoned houses rehabbed. 

 The Lofts at Lion Mills will help to advance an estimated $100 million in improvements (in addition to MetroHealth’s campus renewal) currently underway in the neighborhood.

FYI...

Dream Neighborhood aims to weave refugee housing into West Side neighborhoods

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Kat Oberst Ledger and her husband, Art, recall when West 48thStreet teemed with drug dealers and sounds of gunfire peppered the night. Now their street, near the intersection of Cleveland's Stockyards and Clark-Fulton neighborhoods, is quiet at sundown. Empty houses sit, windows boarded, awaiting demolition. A hummingbird sanctuary and gardens have sprung up on vacant lots.

During the last decade, the Ledgers say, the neighborhood has improved. It also has emptied out, thanks to foreclosures, abandonment and urban decay. But the Ledgers could be welcoming new neighbors – hailing from places as far-flung as Bhutan, Somalia and Ukraine – over the next few years,

"State-of-the art" replaces "antiquated" when new Max Hayes career high school opens Tuesday
By Patrick O'Donnell, The Plain Dealer
on August 16, 2015 at 6:30 AM, updated August 16, 2015 at 9:46 AM

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Kelly Wittman jokes that she should have a golf cart or Segway to move around the new Max Hayes career training high school.

The school, after all, is 550 feet from end to end - almost two football fields long and almost all on the ground floor.

As principal, Wittman will open the new school Tuesday that skips the three-story design of the old Max Hayes High School for one that avoids the challenges of hauling heavy equipment and supplies up stairs or an elevator.

I saw this in the board of zoning agenda for August 31. The address points to an existing 2-story brick building on Clark. The agenda requests a variance along W 65th and the existing building doesn't stretch anywhere near the interection. So this is clearly new construction. I just hope it isn't some crappy dollar store or auto parts store with a parking lot and rear entrance. The area isn't exactly booming so I am not expecting much.

the last of the original structures at the 4-way Clark Ave & Fultion Rd  intersecton has been down for a while now (Zannoni's). 60s/70s facadomized but original structure
A (?) Rally's w drive thru looks to be almost complete. unfortunatley the intersection namesake of the Clark-Fulton neighborhood now is as auto-centric and suburban looking as somewhere out in Macedonia. Big parking lots in front of a Rite Aid, Walgreens, a gas station and now a fast food drive thru.
this is what happens without "gentrification."
At least (just away from the intersection) Mazzone & sons italian bakery still prospers

While it may not be the most architecturally interesting, it definitely will do well to serve its intended purpose.  That said, they could have given it a "stylish industrial" appearance to further its role as a vocational training institution.

And I agree... the Cleveland School of the Arts is simply gorgeous.

Low-income housing tax credits pave way for two residential projects in Cleveland
June 22, 2015
By STAN BULLARD   

The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization and Cleveland Housing Network plan to undertake housing projects in Cleveland after receiving allocations of U.S. low-income housing tax credits administered by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency.

Detroit Shoreway and Cleveland Housing Network announced separately on Friday, June 19, that they had received allocations that will allow them to undertake, respectively, a $9 million conversion of the former Lion Knitting Mills Building, on West 25th Street at Meyer Avenue, and to construct an apartment for the elderly dubbed “Heritage Housing” on a site on East 97th Street north of Chester Avenue.

Lion Knitting will be converted into 36 loft-style units with affordable rents. The structure dates from 1919 and housed a garment firm that closed in 1990.

EDIT: here's the building. It's the largest building still standing in this stretch of West 25th. Hopefully more will spring up soon, especially in the big vacant lot across West 25th...

I'm really glad to see this project and things happening further down 25th, south of the freeway. I'd love to see more around 25th and Clark too. One of my favorite intersections being that it's one of the few "complete intersections" with buildings built up to the sidewalk on all corners.

Unfortunately, Lion Knitting Mills didn't win a historic tax credit in this round. Hope they stick with that project!

Don't you hate when you know something about a project and can't say anything about it...or probably shouldn't say anything about it.

Building has been a mobile phone/pager store in some capacity for nearly 20 years. I remember the old store had their slogan in large print, above the door: "no one else will sell you a beeper cheaper"

Groundbreaking held for Lofts at Lion Mills on West 25th Street
June 30, 2016 UPDATED 6 HOURS AGO
By STAN BULLARD   

The $10 million conversion of an 1892-vintage former garment factory on West 25th Street to loft apartments is beginning in earnest after the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Corp. nonprofit group, civic and government officials held a groundbreaking for the project on Wednesday, June 29.

Jeff Ramsey, executive director of Detroit Shoreway, said in an interview that the project is an early step in fostering redevelopment of the commercial corridor in the Clark Fulton neighborhood near MetroHealth Hospital’s main campus. The project, called Lofts at Lion Mills, will consist of 36 one- and two-bedroom apartments.

The second and third floors of the building have views of downtown Cleveland’s skyline, Ramsey said, and rentals are designed as affordable housing because the project incorporates U.S. low-income housing tax credits sponsored by PNC Bank. Under the guidelines, a family of four with an income below $30,000 annually would qualify to rent in the building. Suites will be available in 2017.

In a news release on the project, Dr. Akram Boutros, MetroHealth CEO, said the hospital system is working on an employee housing plan to encourage families of 500 staffers to move to the neighborhood over the next 10 years.

This is the same area as the Lofts at Lion Mills (see above), but no properties have changed hands recently so I'm curious what's motivating this....

Update: iconic water tower retakes rightful place atop Lofts at Lion Mills
KARIN CONNELLY RICE | TUESDAY, MAY 09, 2017

In its heyday, Lion Knitting Mills established a reputation for making wool military goods, and later sweaters for the consumer market.

The 1919 factory at 3256 W. 25th St. in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood sat vacant after Lion Knitting Mills closed its doors in 1990, until the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization (DSCDO) bought the 52,000-square-foot building and began converting it into affordable loft-style apartments in 2016.
 
The Lofts at Lion Mills, due to be completed by the beginning of September, will soon be 21 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom apartments that pay homage to the building’s history.
