Friday, March 19, 2021; Club Azteca, 5602 Detroit Avenue: In a February 25th article titled “Advocates want to save Detroit-Shoreway club with historic ties to Cleveland’s Hispanic community from wrecking ball” in cleveland.com, Eric Heisig reported on activists hopes of saving this building which for many years hosted celebrations and served as a gathering place for Cleveland’s Mexican American and Latino community. Hispanic advocates urged the Cleveland Landmarks Commission not to approve demolition of the historic building at its February meeting. With the decision to demolish the building delayed, Landmarks Commissioners urged activists to meet with developers from the Bond Street Group to work out a way to honor the building’s legacy. According to the Cleveland.com article, the Bond Street Group has proposed building a 122-unit apartment building with co-working space and retail space. Their plans also call for the demolition of the nearby Vietnam Market grocery and barbershop at 5506 Detroit Avenue.
