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.

Cleveland neighborhoods are filled with these buildings, located on residential sidestreets, off the main drags. A likely residential conversion....

Not sure of the UO connection, but the building had an accidental fire in it last summer (a stray firework set off nearby was the cause and there was no working fire even though businesses were operating in a part of the building...).

It's been shopped (for sale at least 4-5 years for sale) but nothing happened the last I heard.

New Housing is Coming Our Way
Jul 19 2017
By: The MetroHealth System Category: Our Neighborhood
   
Two more affordable housing developments will be built in our neighborhood after today’s announcement that the Ohio Housing Finance Agency has awarded them tax credits.

• The International Village project, located near the Thomas Jefferson Newcomers Academy on West 46 Street in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood, plans to build 22 new single-family homes on vacant lots. You can read more about that project here: https://ohiohome.org/ppd/proposals/2017/Single-FamilyInfillDevelopment/17-0001-InternationalVillage.pdf

• And the Emerald Alliance XI project (see drawing above), located at the site of the old YMCA on West 25th Street in the Brooklyn Centre neighborhood, is planning 71 one-bedroom apartments for residents who’ve experienced homelessness. The apartment building will offer social services including help finding jobs. Read more about those plans here: https://ohiohome.org/ppd/proposals/2017/PermanentSupportiveHousing/17-0003-EmeraldAllianceXI.pdf

Hey I like it. If they aren't going to save the YMCA building, this at least looks to be of similar height and built up to the corner.

Dear Cleveland Clinic....

MetroHealth System to form non-profit to revitalize W. 25th Street neighborhood
Updated on Jul 24, 2017 at 02:36 PM EDT
By Karen Farkas, cleveland.com

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The MetroHealth System plans to expand beyond health care by forming a non-profit corporation to revitalize its West 25th Street neighborhood.

For example, the non-profit expected to be approved by trustees on Wednesday, could buy property and work with a developer to create affordable housing.

"We are in the midst of a campus transformation - it is not just physical campus changes of building a new hospital and parking garage," said spokeswoman Tina Arundel. "We are committed to the entire revitalization of the neighborhood, including the West 25th corridor.

Crain's editorial: Good neighbor

One of the most intriguing pieces of MetroHealth's ambitious campus transformation plan — a nearly $1 billion project that will physically remake the system as we know it — is the community tie-in. The bulk of Cleveland's major construction efforts have at least some component to source local talent for construction jobs, but MetroHealth's plans take that approach to the next level. And, of course, all of the local hospital systems have committed dollars in some regard to uplifting their surrounding neighborhoods, but none yet has taken it to quite the level that MetroHealth intends.

The health system's board in late July approved the creation of CCH Development Corp., a nonprofit devoted to revitalizing its West 25th Street neighborhood and developing nearby abandoned real estate in collaboration with various other partners. And while it's a unique model among Northeast Ohio hospitals, it's not completely foreign to the region's major institutions. Both Cleveland State University and Playhouse Square launched development entities — with success — focused on uplifting their neighborhoods.
