Join the Northern Ohio Chapter as we proudly welcome Anne-Marie Niklaus, CPM, ARM, Senior Vice President, IREM National and Senior Vice President of Balfour Beatty Communities, LLC, as she visits our chapter for our annual meeting. Anne-Marie will address the membership on the corporate real estate market outlook around the country, what we can expect in the future and how IREM can help you in your business and/or career.

Following Anne-Marie Niklaus, we will highlight Snavely Development's new project on the northwest corner of W. 25th Street & Detroit. Featuring Peter Snavely, Vice President of Development of Snavely Group who will highlight the significant transformation underway. Under the leadership of Snavely Group, with partners Brown, Gibbons, Lang & Company and the Orlean Company, a $60 million development will remake a key intersection at the juncture between downtown and the near west side of Cleveland. The mixed-use, mixed-income development includes land on the north and south sides of Detroit Avenue. Sitting on the north side of the street, new construction will consist of 194 market rate apartments and 30,000 SF of commercial space. Residents will occupy four floors of studio, one and two bedroom apartments and enjoy exclusive amenities like temperature-controlled underground parking, a luxury hotel-style pool, a full-service gym and an indoor dog washing station. First floor commercial tenants will include an educational facility occupied by the Music Settlement; a locally-sourced grocery store, the Grocery; and retail space. On the southwest corner, a rehab of the historic Forest City Bank Building will bring to the neighborhood a co-working facility run by the Beauty Shoppe, a new-to-Cleveland restaurant concept and 38 affordable apartments.

Snavely Group is also a proud partner in the planning of a new neighborhood park, now under development, at Irishtown Bend sitting on the southeast corner of West 25th and Detroit. Currently under construction, the project is expected to be complete by June 2018.

Following the luncheon there will be an optional hard hat tour of the West 25th construction site.
