La Collina Apartments
Client: Hemingway Development
The Little Italy Apartments in Cleveland’s thriving Little Italy Neighborhood is a mixed-use infill development that capitalizes on the neighborhood’s established character and style. Built on the site of a former restaurant and vacant lots, the development uses design and layout elements to fit into the existing context of the neighborhood and Mayfield Road.
Although the building is much larger than its neighboring properties, the stepped-back design of the upper floors and street-level retail gives the building a more natural feeling scale. Additionally, the inclusion of underground parking allowed for more buildable space and prioritizing people and place over cars at the street-level.
