On the other end of Euclid Avenue, The Lumen now towers over Playhouse Square at 34 stories tall. Downtown Cleveland’s newest residential tower was built on a surface parking lot, becoming the largest apartment building built in Downtown Cleveland in 40 years. The Lumen welcomed its first tenants in July and continues to draw top talent from other cities looking to call Downtown Cleveland home. Residents of The Lumen’s 318-unit complex live in close proximity to Heinen’s Grocery store and DGX, the urban-concept Dollar General store located in the NineTwelve District.
The additions of both The Lumen and The May to Downtown Cleveland’s residential portfolio represent only a slice of the ongoing residential development attracting top talent to our center city neighborhood. These developments join recently completed projects like The Beacon, The Athlon, Terminal Tower Residences and The Statler in filling out Downtown Cleveland’s premier retail corridor, Historic Euclid Avenue. With over 500 more housing units currently under construction at the Euclid Grand, E. 12th + Ave, 2125 Superior Apartments, 75 Public Square, and plans approved for the City Club Apartments, prospective residents have a robust menu of housing options to choose from.
“The last few months have highlighted the value of living in a clean, safe and welcoming neighborhood that allows residents to meet their daily needs and access outdoor recreation within an easy 15-minute walk,” said Michael Deemer, Downtown Cleveland Alliance’s executive vice president for business development.
Especially in times such as these, residents place high value on Downtown Cleveland’s convenience, walkability and easy access to cultural gems like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland Aquarium and natural amenities like the Cuyahoga River, Towpath Trail and North Coast Harbor. Whether walking to a Downtown office, working remotely for a Greater Cleveland employer or reporting virtually into jobs located in high-cost markets on the coasts, Downtown Cleveland offers residents affordable big city amenities, energy and convenience.
