Fairview Park luxury development can move forward

February 26, 2014 by  

The River South Modern Ecohomes project in Fairview Park is one step closer to reality, thanks to the Board of Commissioners of Cleveland Metroparks approval of the site plan presented by Andrew Brickman, the developer of the project.

Brickman won the commissioners’ approval at a January 29 meeting. The site plan shows the project will overlook the Rocky River Reservation, a park located near the eastern border of Fairview Park. Permission from the commissioners was needed because some of the planned decks of the development have a cliff in their vicinity, and any construction within twenty feet of a slope requires permission from the city.

There are already buildings on the site, but they will be brought down before the new build starts. Brickman hopes to have the buildings ready in approximately a year. The project is a group of 36 luxury townhomes, which will be built within seven buildings. The units will be priced between $229, 000 and $500,000 and range in size from 1,170 to 2,800 square feet.

Brickman and his company, Abode Modern Lifestyle Developers, have already built similar housing in Rocky River, Cleveland Heights, the Little Italy neighborhood in Cleveland, and in Lakewood.

Brickman could work with brochure printers to create a mailer for area residents, describing the development and its amenities, and suggesting they consider visiting to see if they would like to buy.
