Featured Property: Lofts at Lion Mills

  • Lofts at Lion Mills

The Lofts at Lion Mills is an adaptive reuse of Cleveland's historic Lion Knitting Mill, which produced knitted goods for the military. The historic rehabilitation transformed the building into 36 units of affordable housing for families. The project is located in a heavily traveled corridor, is adjacent to the MetroHealth Medical Center (one of Cleveland's largest employers) and has parking available for residents. The project met OHFA policy goals by supporting a development with a revitalization plan that served extremely low-income populations. The building was owned by a state-certified CHDO and developed by an experienced team. The project received priority designation in the City of Cleveland and was also a recipient of historic tax credits.
