Cleveland: InTown Place Apartments

Recommended Posts

Big apartment owner buys suites near CSU

 

By STAN BULLARD

 

6:00 am, June 11, 2007

 

Niederst Management Inc. has paid $1.3 million for the 35%-vacant, 150-suite InTown Place Apartments, 2901 Euclid Ave.

 

Calling the building “kind of junky looking,” company president David Niederst said he plans to change the former hotel’s 1960s-vintage exterior and to spruce up 55 empty suites.

 

A low price per suite drew the apartment company to the building, as did its proximity to downtown and Cleveland State University.

Good news.  That is a trashy building as it currently stands, but with its proximity to CSU, it would make great student housing.

 

Also in that neck of the woods, did anyone notice that the building next to Bros Printing, across Euclid from CSU, has the bottom floor windows taken out and replaced with boards and a big "Marous Bros" sign on it?  I wonder what is going on there.

Their webpage says nothing about it, unless it is in their newsletter, which my computer sucks too much to download. 

 

Musky, where are you?

Here I am! Still playing catch-up from the down time.

 

 

Where did you try to download it from? I can try to do it.

 

The building the thread is referring has nothing to do with CSU. And good luck to them with it - they art going to need it (see bottom photo)

 

The other building (2020 Euclid) is likely part of College Town.

Got to keep things on topic, you know.

Sort of like our version of the Digg effect.

This will be an awesome project! This is a very cool part of Euclid that needs to be re-tapped. I wouldn't be surprised if a residential boom happens along the low 30's of Euclid and Prospect. Some very nice buildings just waiting for rehab.

I totally agree.  Those brownstones on prospect and a few of the remaing apartment homes on Euclid are HUGE and goregeous on the inside.

Shocking what you see when on the Healthline... this building is very much in the process of being redone.  Which is good because just about every building between East 30th and the innerbelt is ass ugly.

I hate to date myself, yet I remember back in the Cleveland Arena days, there were motels on that section of Euclid like the Sahara (later converted to a YWCA) and IIRC, what is now the Intown was called the Versailles.  I think it had a top floor bar.  I vaguely remember something Motownish through the haze of 40 years.  That section of Euclid does have potential!

It was apparently also once the Piccadilly Inn and they had some pretty big rock shows there back in the 70s.  I think this little stretch of Euclid could be fantastic with a little love... but not too much love.  Don't got getting crazy and tearing up those kitschy facades!

Urb-a-saurus -- good memory again on the name of the Sahara.  Here are a few shots that I found on Cleveland memory (link below). It was at 3201 Euclid (now part of the parking lot and lawns of the Applied Industrial building it appears).

Where on Euclid was this Sahara?

 

Just west of E. 36th, on the north side of the road.

 

EDIT- Or I could just quote FrqntFlyr:

I'm a little bit confused as to exactly which building this InTown Place Apartments at 2901 Euclid ave is. When I was in college at CSU in the seventies I remember that their was this approximately 8-10 story hotel or inn on the north side of Euclid ave on the very first parcel east of the innerbelt. Today on that first parcel is a parking lot.  OR is this that building ( Inn ) that i remember from the seventies?

"Who knew that such swanky resorts were once on lower Euclid?!?!"

 

Yes, and there was bonafide night life on that "strip".  There was also the

tall Sheraton at E36th (now I think Days Inn). You know, Downtown could use a 24 hour coffee shop/diner/deli type place now.  Something with an awesome menu from pancakes to prime rib and everything in between, as well as great coffee.

This was in an email I received from Midtown Cleveland Inc., at the bottom is a link to the project's website.
