3929 Lorain Ave - Sartorial
The ground floor and basement will be occupied by the owner/operator for the retail store (Sartorial). While the space will have a bar, the atmosphere will be more comparable to a social club/lounge than it would be at a traditional bar. In addition to the bar itself, there will be a pool table, golf simulator, darts etc. to provide an element of entertainment. Upstairs will have just over 1700 square feet of commercial tenant space (still looking for a tenant).
Although the parking lot is small, it will be essential for pre-booked clients, drop-off/pick-up for wedding parties, shipments and deliveries, etc as well as the single apartment unit upstairs which will be owner-occupied.
As a prior service Marine, I plan to accept used garments (serviceable garments) in exchange for a discount on new purchases. This inventory of second-hand apparel will become inventory for job assistance programs for local Veterans. The plan is to bring in folks who are transitioning out of service into civilian life, out of addiction programs or homelessness services, and get them into a fresh garment as well as getting some head shots, resume review, job coaching etc.
The Bodnar Funeral Home is an existing building that has been vacant since the funeral home closed. The site is in a historic district.
The project team is going through city permitting, zoning, and additional reviews. Zach Cooper presented at OCI's November Community meeting (click here for the recording of the meeting).
The Bodnar Funeral Home building will be rehabilitated. The building dates back to at least the 1890s.
