Pilsener Brewing Bottling-Works building named as new city landmark

(Plain Press, August 2020)            The vacant Pilsener Brewing Bottling-Works building on Clark Avenue is now a Cleveland landmark after Cleveland City Council recently approved the legislation at the June 1st meeting.

The giant brick structure was built in 1913-1914 as part of a sprawling beer-brewing campus that produced the popular P.O.C beer – which the locals dubbed “Pride of Cleveland.” At times, the brand was the top selling beer in the region. The complex of buildings on W. 65th and Clark was called Pilsener Square.

The non-profit Detroit-Shoreway Community Development Organization (DSCDO) hopes to be able to secure historic tax credits for redevelopment of the Pilsener Brewing Bottling-Works building. The landmark designation will allow them to apply for these credits. The next window to apply for the historic tax credits will be in 2021. If successful in obtaining the historic tax credits, DSCDO hopes to obtain ownership of the building and develop the building into 39 affordable housing units.
