Flats East Bank Ribbon-Cutting

Boasting spectacular views of both the Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie, the Flats East Bank Apartments are completed and partially occupied by eager new tenants. The joint venture of Panzica-LeChase Construction completed work on the $65 million luxury residential complex which consists of 240 apartment units, totaling 500,000-square-feet. Sitting on the formerly deserted bank of the Cuyahoga River, the remarkable new structure is now the flagship of the revitalized Flats East Bank. Mayor Frank Jackson, Scott and Iris Wolstein and members of Cleveland City Council were on hand for the ribbon-cutting marking the official opening of the waterfront district.


The first new police station built in Cleveland since 1974, the three-story building on Chester Avenue, just west of E. 55th Street, is quite a structure to behold. In collaboration with design architects, Panzica completed construction of the 60,000-square-foot facility in July.

The exterior of the building was composed of three distinct materials which mirrors the functionality of the interior. This modern, 21st century facility consists of a communications center on the top floor, core police functions on the second floor and a first floor designed for community engagement – complete with meeting space that is available for use by […]
