CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland City Planning Commission on Friday approved several apartment projects, including a new 23-story building that would replace a downtown parking lot.

The projects come as demand for higher-rent apartments in downtown Cleveland has started to soften along with the rest of the economy. However, developers think there is enough demand to keep building.

The most high profile project the commission OK’d during is the virtual meeting is likely the City Club Apartments building, set for construction on the south side of Euclid Avenue west of East 9th Street.

The Michigan-based City Club Apartments company developing the building is not affiliated with the City Club of Cleveland, though the new building will be next to the civic organization’s headquarters.

The building will sit on the site of the former Hippodrome Theater, demolished in 1981 to make way for the parking lot currently on the property.
