Van Aken Redevelopment

Phase one of the Van Aken District was completed in 2019. This mixed-use, transit-oriented development was built by RMS, after almost 20 years of thoughtful planning and infrastructure improvements by the City of Shaker Heights to lay the groundwork for the redevelopment of this area.

Phase two of the Van Aken District broke ground in August 2022. RMS will build a 228-unit apartment building on the north side of Farnsleigh Rd. between Van Aken Blvd. and Tuttle Rd. This site was previously a City-owned parking lot.

Additionally, the City is working on public realm improvement for the Van Aken District, including upgrades to the District's public transit station.
