Luxury apartments being built at the foot of Hope Memorial Bridge

CLEVELAND — 241 new apartments are being build right now at 2020 Lorain Avenue on a previously empty plot of land at the foot of the Hope Memorial Bridge, heading into Ohio City from Downtown Cleveland. The project is called Waterford Bluffs Apartments.

Construction started in December and residents are expected to start moving in towards the end of 2022, according to a press release from the Chicago-based developer Stoneleigh Companies.

The location used to be the site of the Bridgeview Cafe, a small car dealership, and a few small homes, according to Google Maps images from 2009.

The 3.4 acres those buildings sat on have been cleared to make way for the new project to sit on a 75 foot high bluff facing Scranton Peninsula and Downtown Cleveland.

In a nod to modern conveniences, the project’s website boasts electric/hybrid car charging stations, Zoom rooms, and USB outlets in kitchens and bedrooms.
