Van Aken District Phase 2: Farnsleigh Apartments

Apartment RenderingThe Max Collaborative (formerly RMS), developers of the Van Aken District, proposes to construct Phase 2 of the Van Aken District, a 228-unit apartment building located on the north side of Farnsleigh Rd. between Van Aken Blvd. and Tuttle Rd. The design process began in late 2020 and the development obtained all required approvals of the Architectural Board of Review, City Planning Commission, and Board of Zoning Appeals. Construction is expected to begin in August or September of 2022 and will continue for just under two years.

Existing Conditions and Background

The site has been a parking lot since 1965, and its development as apartments was envisioned in the 2008 Warrensville/Van Aken Transit-Oriented Development Plan.

Public Meetings

The review of the proposed apartment project included a process of public meetings of the Architectural Board of Review as well as public hearings of the City Planning Commission/Board of Zoning Appeals at which public comments were included.
