Cleveland development: what to look for in 2024 — University Circle

Back when Cleveland was an industrial powerhouse, few wanted to live near its dirty, noisy industries.

Two old Hough walk-ups: two fates

Two century-old, walk-up apartment buildings face each other on East 89th Street in Cleveland’s Hough neighborhood. One is structurally unsound and in danger of collapse after it was neglected by a so-called foundation facing a huge unpaid tax bill. The other will have its renovation and expansion plan reviewed by a committee of the City Planning Commission starting this week after it was bought by a successful, civic-minded local investor.
