Elevation from Lorain of the West 48th block with proposed build

4732 Lorain Avenue

What's in the Works

A restored historic building and new addition will house 23 apartments and ground floor retail space.

What's There Now

The site is comprised on two parcels. The first is an existing building at 4732 Lorain Avenue that currently houses a daycare center, with a parking lot adjacent. The second is a vacant parcel of land that was acquired by Ohio City Incorporated in 2017 from the Cuyahoga County Land Bank. In 2023, Ohio City Incorporated sold the land to the current owner, Jim Miketo of Forest City Shuffleboard.

What's Happening Next

The project team is submitting for city reviews and the project will be presented at the Ohio City Incorporated monthly community meeting on June 20th 2023.
