Van Aken District high-rises may start next month

The 15- and 18-story Farnsleigh Apartments are due to see construction
start as early as next month thanks to city incentives that were approved
this week. The high-rises next to the Van Aken District, seen at bottom,
will be the tallest buildings in Shaker Heights when completed
sometime in late 2023 or early 2024 (SCB).

In a sudden development, a major real estate construction project that was rejected for state financial incentives earlier this year has found its salvation from its host city Shaker Heights. And not only was phase two of the Van Aken District blessed with city incentives, phase three was also a beneficiary of the city’s generosity. The approvals came earlier this week during a City Council meeting as an emergency measure, meaning it would not go through the usual readings at three separate council meetings and thus without public input.
