Move to Cleveland! Job Relocation Housing?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I'm relocating from Ohio arch nemesis of Michigan (OSU vs. MICHIGAN).

 

My job is transferring me to Cleveland. I'm a 23 year old professional.  I'm looking for preferably a 1 bdrm up to 2  no more than $1,500 per month. 

 

Any suggestions? I'm open to any neighborhoods.  I currently live in a lofts and love the openness of them,

^Hardly...it is about 200 yards long.  Lots of different apartment options in the e.4th -Gateway neighborhood and even more in the Warehouse District (lofts) just west of Public Square

Yes, I have transportation.  My job is in Solon, but I think I would prefer to live in or close to the city as Im a young single professional.

 

I attached a pic of my current loft in Michigan to get a sense of my taste in a way...

^Those three areas are great, but none of the units in them are modernized like the pic above.  Definitely more character IMO, but far from modern.

 

RBDC180 - given your price range (which gives you a lot of flexibility, check out Park Lane Villa in University Circle - http://www.parklanevilla.com/.  UC is the cultural center of the City containing most of the museams, severance hall, Case Western Reserve U., not far from Little Italy, Coventry, or Cedar-Fairmount.... and a short ride to Downtown (by bus, bike, or car).

 

You may also want to consider Tremont Place Lofts - http://www.tremontplacelofts.com/.  Tremont might be our trendiest neighborhood at the moment, and is just SW of downtown.

 

Of course, there is 668 Euclid in Downtown - http://www.668euclidave.com/ - but you would most likely have to go on a waiting list.

 

I have heard that the Avenue District's condo building in Downtown might be converting to rentals due to low sales - http://www.theavenuedistrict.com/welcome/home/ - doesn't hurt to check it out

 

Lastly, I'm not sure of your ETA, but there is new construction in UC that might intrigue you - http://www.uptowncleveland.com/ - I don't think any units will be available until late Fall.

 

Welcome  :wave:

Many the places like yours in Cleveland are for-sale lofts:  http://myclevelandcondo.com/properties.aspx

 

But there are many, many loft apartment buildings downtown....

 

http://downtowncleveland.com/living/residential-properties.aspx (click on rentals)

 

Here are some that I'm familiar with and can recommend.....

 

http://www.east4thstreet.com/live (clearing house for multiple buildings)

http://www.668euclidave.com/ (very difficult to get into!)

http://www.huronosborn.com/ (two good buildings in a great location)

http://www.wtgrantapartments.com/ (a good second option to the 668 listed above)

http://thebingham.com/ (loud hallways but has a grocery store/cafe on the ground floor)

http://www.pointeatgateway.com/ (has rent to own option)

 

Many of the others I'm sure are good buildings, but I just don't know much about them.

A 2 bedroom is available at Federal Knitting Mills, and there's a 1 bedroom at W 58th Lofts in Detroit-Shoreway.  No available units shown for Merrell or Metzner Lofts...  http://clv-lofts.com/available.html

 

 

Also, near CSU on Euclid are the following buildings:

 

1900 Euclid: http://www.thecoralcompany.com/residential-1900-euclid.html

University Lofts: http://www.universityloftsapartments.com/

 

Tower Press Lofts are downtown but a bit isolated from nightlife - Very cool architectural spaces:

http://cleveland.craigslist.org/apa/2479743289.html

 

I doubt this fits your needs, but there is a live-work loft posted on craigslist at East 40th and Payne in Asiatown.  It's a massive (3000+ sq ft) space, and I wish I could live in something like this, so I had to post at least one picture from the listing:

Friend of mine just moved into Tremont Place Lofts because they were looking for those modern touches.  So far they're happy there, so it'd be something to check out for sure.  I know they had to wait for a unit to open up, however, so that might be something to consider when looking for a place.

When looking in Tremont or anywhere else......don't discount non lofts.

 

Take a look at craig's list.  My old landlord did some amazing things with some up and down doubles in Tremont.    The apartment I had was not a "loft" but it had the ceilings vaulted to the roof line and the only interior door was on the bathroom.

 

He took down the kitchen wall to make a 1/2 wall with a granite countertop and there were some amazing original archways between the old "front" room and the side "sleeping" room.  The "front" room was curtained off for the Bedroom.

 

And all of the areas offered are very nice but to get to Solon every day.

 

1) Tremont

2) downtown

 

 

4) take a look at Colinwood or Bratenhal getting on 90 to whip around to 271 makes the commute similar to Tremont.

 

5) Shaker Square-Little Italy-the Heights.

6) Detroit/shoreway-Lakewood

 

$1500 is a very generous budget, you wont have an issue finding something

 

With that being said  any minutes you can shift your commute off of rush hour will be helpful....the 422/480/271 interchange becomes a mess from 7-9 and 4:30-6

 

Also be careful with any and all areas.......Tremont is a very loose word used in rentals.  As is Ohio City and other such monikers.  If you narrow down your choice you will get the particulars for that neighborhood.

 

 

For Tremont I would tell you to stay North of 490 if you can and don't go South of Clark.  Also stay East of 90/71.    Professor is the name of the "main drag" with the highest concentration of bars/restaurants (the whole neighborhood is riddled with them)  the closer to the action the more you will need off street parking and ear plugs.  The Bars/restaurants are not clubs, the ages are more 30's-40's than 20's Ohio City and E 4th is similar 

 

Ohio City is probably the most in between

 

20's more lakewood, w/6th, the Heights

I'm not sure if there is any availability but check out Prospect Place. It seems like it has pretty much everything that you are looking for.

^ are you planning on staying? Of course you are.  There are brand new townhomes being built right in Battery Park.  With incentives you can pay between 1200-1300/month. Rooftop terrace with views, park access, and custom built for you. 1600+ square feet. I just got one, great decision.

Always rent in your new city until you find the areas where you'd like to put down some roots.
