New affordable housing in our West 25th Street neighborhood

Earlier this month, local leaders, including Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and MetroHealth CEO Dr. Akram Boutros, cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the Lofts at Lion Mills.

It capped a $10.2 million renovation of the historic Lion Knitting Mills building, located just two blocks north of our main campus on West 25th Street. The restored gem of a building offers 36 new and affordably priced one- and two-bedroom apartments. Units feature new appliances, on-site laundry, high ceilings, scenic views and a great location. Rents start at only $260 a month (residents must meet low-income requirements and other criteria to lease one of the apartments).

A revitalization of our neighborhood is a key part of MetroHealth’s Transformation Plan. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Dr. Boutros announced that nine MetroHealth employees and their families would be moving into Lion Mills.
