MetroHealth shares preliminary plans for senior citizen housing project and police station
(Plain Press, October 2022) At a September 22nd community meeting at the BridgeCLE/Family Ministry Center on Fulton Road, MetroHealth Medical Center’s CCH Development Corporation shared its plans for a new senior housing project to be built at W. 25th and Trowbridge Avenue along with a new MetroHealth Police Station. CCH Development Corporation collaborated with The Community Builders and RDL Architects in creating the plans for the development project.
The project’s plans call for building a four story 60-unit apartment building on the corner of W. 25th and Trowbridge Avenue. The apartments planned for the building include 53 one-bedroom apartments and seven two-bedroom apartments. The building will also feature a roughly 5,000 square foot senior center on its north side.
The MetroHealth plans call for another building, a two-story building just to the north of the senior center, that is to house the MetroHealth Police Station.
The design of the new project calls for parking in the rear of the building. The sketches of the plans provided by MetroHealth include landscaping with green plants around the entire building including on W. 30th behind the parking area.
The plans are in the early stages of the approval process. Architect Ron Tannenbaum of RDL Architects was on the agenda of the Near West Design Review Committee seeking conceptual approval of the project at its September 28th meeting. At that meeting he will also be seeking final approval for the demolition of four buildings on W. 25th Street. The addresses of those buildings are: 3366 W. 25th; 3370 W. 25th; address 3374 W. 25th; and 3390 W. 25th Street. At the September 28th meeting of the Near West Design Review Committee all items on the agenda were tabled. The next Near West Design Review Committee meeting will likely be in second Wednesday in October.
Following the Near West Design Review approval process, the next step for the project is to seek approval for both the demolitions and the project design at the City of Cleveland Planning Commission.
