Cleveland's New Avenue District

Artist Rendering of The Avenue District

When I was working downtown in the Tower at Erieview, my view directly below and to the east was of a dismal parking lot. Thankfully, the parking lot is now becoming The Avenue District, which, as their web site states, “will be a walkable neighborhood weaving seamlessly with The Theatre, Gateway, Civic, and Lakefront Districts and right next door to Cleveland State, and the Galleria. It will satisfy the need of urban dwellers looking for a downtown neighborhood that offers culture, entertainment, convenience, and accessibility.” By the way, don't confuse the Avenue District with The Avenue at Tower City. They are blocks apart, with The Avenue at Tower City being the shopping area by Terminal Tower.

Over 400 residential units are planned for The Avenue District, including penthouses, lofts, and town homes. Avenue District literature has loft starting at $232,390, town homes starting at $246,750, and penthouses ranging from $600,000 to over $1 million.

Building is well underway. I snapped a few pictures while I was in the area recently. It looks like it will be a great improvement over that parking lot.

The Avenue District's web site can be found here.
