Taylor Tudors Renovation Earns Design Approvals For Revitalization Along South Taylor Road

The City of Cleveland Heights approved designs submitted by WXZ Development that will allow the renovation of the Taylor-Tudor buildings, or Taylor Tudors, which are located in Cleveland Heights’ Stadium Square National Historic District, on the west side of South Taylor Road between the Taylor Road Synagogue and the Vanderbrook Florist Building (1908-1946 South Taylor Road).

The proposed Taylor Tudors rehabilitation is the first phase of a larger initiative to transform and revitalize South Taylor Road and create a proposed Cain Park Village.

On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, the City of Cleveland Heights Architectural Board of Review granted final design approval for the renovation and on Wednesday, August 11, 2022, the City of Cleveland Heights Planning Commission granted a conditional use permit approval for the live-work units.

The project will seek state and federal historic preservation tax credits and will include complete rehabilitation of the Taylor-Tudor buildings per the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Historic Preservation. The scope of work includes new windows, new storefront systems, new building mechanicals, new skylights, the addition of elevator spaces, and new roofs.

The first phase of rehabilitation will bring the buildings back to life. It will involve converting of some of the ground-floor space in the two northernmost buildings into eight “live-work units,” a trend this is occurring across the United States. The remaining ground-floor space will be re-activated retail. The second and third floors will contain 44 residential units, two studio apartments, 40 1-bedroom apartments, and two 2-bedroom apartments.

The broader vision for the revitalization of South Taylor Road and creation of Cain Park Village will be subject to a review process involving community engagement, staff review, and multiple approvals by Cleveland Heights Planning Commission, other city boards and commissions, and Cleveland Heights City Council.

The Cleveland Heights Happy 5k/10k Race Returns!

Sunday, October 2, 2022

In case you haven't marked your calendars yet, this year’s 6th Annual Happy 5k/10k Race will take place on Sunday, October 2ndYou can register by visiting the Happy 5k/10k registration page.

We love the Happy 5k/10k because it showcases the best of Cleveland Heights.

It starts with an “All are Welcome” one-mile fun run/walk for all ages. Then, racers compete on a 5k/10k course through the streets of Cleveland Heights. You can see the course map here.

We also love the Happy 5k/10k because it raises a lot of money to pay for community recreation scholarships for young people through the Cleveland Heights Youth Scholarship Fund--more than $40,000 during its first four years.

But there are a lot of OTHER reasons to love the Happy 5k/10k, too.

So, in the coming weeks, we're going to list a few of the other reasons why more than 600 people raced in the last Happy 5k/10k--and why you should run in this year's race.

Here's our first one:

Reason 1# You get to run in costume! 

Cleveland Heights is a Home for the Arts and you may have noticed that folks here like to express themselves creatively. The Happy 5k/10k brings that creative expression out into the streets. There are even prizes for the best costumes.

Register today at the Happy 5k/10k registration page and start planning your costume now!

Hold Your Recycling Until Your Cart is Full

Residents can help to conserve energy by waiting until their recycling carts are full (or close to full) before placing them at the curb for collection. This will result in fewer stops and less fuel expended during the collection process.

Since all recycling should be clean before it is placed in the recycling cart, holding onto your partially filled recycling carts shouldn’t cause a nuisance.


DO NOT hold onto your trash. Your refuse cart should still always be placed out weekly. 

Your Help is Desperately Needed!
