Tremont’s Electric Gardens development moves forward with nod from planning commission

CLEVELAND, Ohio – A new apartment project in Tremont moved forward Friday with the latest design approval it needed from the city’s planning commission.

The commission OK’d the schematic design for J Roc Development’s Electric Gardens, an apartment building on Literary Road in the near-West Side neighborhood. Friday’s vote is not the final step; the developer must still get final design approvals and a zone change for the property, which is currently industrial.

In the past three months alone, two new coworking spaces opened in Ohio City, joining the ranks of a handful of others dotting Cleveland’s professional landscape.

Located behind the Bergen Village townhouse development, the project site sits at the juncture of an urban neighborhood and the city’s Industrial Valley. There, J Roc is proposing to erect a building with between 124 and 140 apartment units. A centerpiece of the project is its proximity to the Towpath Trail, project representatives said. Residents would have direct access to the 87-mile trail that follows the historic route of the Ohio and Erie Canal.
