URBAN LIVING

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND

For the ultimate in urban living, Downtown Cleveland offers loft-style apartments and condominiums in some of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods, including East 4th Street, The Warehouse District on West 6th, and the East Bank of The Flats along the Cuyahoga  River. Downtown apartment occupancy rates are currently experiencing historic highs, with reports showing rates running above 97 percent.

UNIVERSITY CIRCLE

Five miles east of Downtown you’ll find the Uptown neighborhood, a flourishing arts and entertainment district that’s a part of Cleveland’s cultural mecca—University Circle—home of world-class museums and Severance Hall where the Cleveland Orchestra performs. The Uptown neighborhood is home to modern apartments and condominiums that interspersed among living spaces trendy eateries, live-music spots, the Cleveland Institute of Art and its Cinemateque theater, and Cleveland’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The New York Times recently dubbed Uptown Cleveland’s “new downtown.”

LITTLE ITALY

Next to Uptown and University Circle is Little Italy. This area runs from from E. 119th to E. 125th streets on Murray Hill and Mayfield roads, and is one of Cleveland’s most charming neighborhoods. About 8,700 residents call Little Italy home and about three-quarters of the houses are rentals. Higher-end new construction includes the Villa Carabelli condo development at the top end of Mayfield Road and the Random Road Lofts. You’ll also find well-maintained mid-19th century single-family homes. And of course, Little Italy is home to some of Cleveland’s finest Italian restaurants.

NEAR WESTSIDE

Just to the west of Cleveland are three historic neighborhoods worth noting: Detroit-Shoreway, Ohio City, and Tremont. Each of these neighborhoods is experiencing an eye-catching transformation.

 

Housing in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, situated a couple of miles west of Downtown along the North Coast, ranges from mid-nineteenth century single-family homes to modern townhouses and condominiums. Residential historic districts often feature structures that feature stained-glass windows and attractive urban landscapes. Single-family homes generally sell between $65,000-$150,000. New-construction town homes and condominiums go for between $150,000 and $300,000.

 

Just south of and to the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood is Ohio City, located in the

W. 25th St. and Lorain Ave. area. This is one of the oldest (est. 1826), yet trendiest Cleveland neighborhoods. Marked by a blend of historic and modern housing, you can own, rent, and build here in what is the center of the city’s near West Side.

 

Just southeast of Ohio City is Tremont, one of the city’s most diverse and dynamic neighborhoods offering a range of rentals, including loft-style apartments, and renovated houses and modern townhomes for sale.
