First look: The new luxury apartments at 75 Public Square in Downtown Cleveland

The history building held its grand reopening Thursday night following a $43 million renovation.

CLEVELAND — Welcome to 75 Public Square.

Its 15 stories have been standing next to the Old Stone Church since 1914. Once home to the Cleveland Illuminating Company, this grand structure now has a new purpose: multi-family luxury apartments and first-floor retail space that borders Public Square.

The rehabbed building entrance revealed its original marble walls along the hallway that leads to a first-floor community room. The 114 residential apartments come in a variety of floor plans, providing one-of-a-kind views of downtown.

Up on top, the 15th floor includes a two-level community space for residents and access to a railed-rooftop patio. The building's basement is seeing new life, as well, as the former power generation space is now a rec room, fitness center, and indoor dog park complete with a pet bathing station. If residents work up a thirst playing pool, pumping iron, or giving Fido a bath, they can enjoy one free pint of suds at the building's beer station! (Limit one per day, please)

The price tag of the renovation? $43 million. The Millenia Companies included state and federal tax credits to restore and preserve this 108-year old beauty. A Cleveland landmark becoming a vital, vibrant part of downtown once again.

Rents for apartments begin start at just under $1,200 a month. If you're interested in leasing, you can check out floor plans here.
