  • Artist rendering of forthcoming Brickhaus Towers project.
Though details are still scarce and plans have yet to be finalized, artist renderings of Andrew Brickman's "Brickhaus Towers" project on Lorain Ave. and W. 20th (at the western foot of the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge), are now available for viewing at the website of HP Urban, a planning and design firm.

Brickman's project, on the 4-plus acres of land his companies purchased in 2013 for $1.7 million, will include 505 total units, plus food and retail amenities. 

Back in 2013, Michelle Jarboe at the PD reported that Brickman was interested in the high-end market, and that rental units might surpass $1.75 per square foot ($1,400/month on an 800 square-foot apartment). Brickman quotes Jarboe's report on the Brickhaus Ohio City page.

Whatever the cost, it's going to be an extremely deluxe project, that's for sure. 

In the inaugural edition of the Ohio City / Tremont Observer, published earlier this month, Jim O'Bryan wrote a piece on the upcoming project, saying a reporter saw Brickman looking at renderings. They even published an over-the-shoulder image of one of them, calling the project "One West 20."

Brickman's Company, Brickhaus Partners lists some of the project's amenities: 
  • Available Upper Units of 2,500+/- sf
  • Retail Component with Drive-Thru
  • Vibrant + Walkable Location
  • Close to Downtown Cleveland
  • Direct Access to Public Transit and RTA Redline
  • Cleveland Hopkins Airport 10 Minutes via RTA Redline
  • Complies to Sustainable Cleveland 2019
  • Adjoins Nearby Towpath Trail
But don't get too attached to the slick and futuristic images. Brickman advised Sam McNulty on Twitter that there may yet be a few tweaks.
