The Euclid Avenue Housing Foundation (EAHF) and Cleveland State University (CSU) are developing approximately 400-700 new on-campus beds targeted at upper division students, in two phases. Phase 1 will begin as soon as possible. Phase 2 will begin after the CSU Bookstore relocates to the future Student Center. The unit mix was to appeal to upperclassmen students with a combination of unit types. Both apartments and suite-style units were considered based on the developer’s understanding of market dynamics and appropriate rental rates.

Developers were to include typical student-oriented amenities such as laundry facilities, business and study services, social gathering areas and independent operational support and maintenance space within the community. At least 9,000-10,000 square feet of administrative space with Euclid Avenue access should be included for University use. The developer was to be responsible for determining if retail is appropriate and at what scale on Euclid Avenue and/or Prospect Avenue.

Design was to assume a residential scale, but remain congruent to surrounding properties (existing and planned). The plan was to accommodate the continuation of 24th Street from Euclid Avenue to Prospect Avenue as well as driveways to access the new facilities. Particular attention was to be paid to the historical and existing market dynamics and the University environment. Lastly, parking was to be included in the plan.
