CLEVELAND, Ohio – A developer plan to add 30 new apartments in two buildings on both sides of an inclined industrial road on the southern end of the Duck Island section of Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood.
The “Cooper Flats” buildings will include 18 apartments in one building on one side of Willey Avenue, with 12 additional units in a building across the road. The winding industrial roadway, which also includes the Fairmount Creamery building and Cleveland Animal Protective League to the northeast, is one of several ways residents can travel between Duck Island and what many consider the main section of Tremont.
Developer Matt Berges, who has built housing throughout Duck Island, sees the cluster of apartments as an opportunity to better connect the area to the rest of Tremont .
“It’s helping to link our efforts in Duck Island down to the connection point in Tremont,” he said.
