Welcome to


The newest chapter of a storied neighborhood

Following the restorations of Fairmont Creamery, Wagner Awning, and Mueller Lofts, Sustainable Community Associates challenged itself to imagine a new construction project that would embody the best elements of historic buildings within a brand new community.

The Tappan | Cleveland, Ohio

Here is what has emerged: our favorite artisan bakery, a dynamic community of friends and neighbors, a roof deck and sunken garden to spend the day relaxing, and residential units that recognize the most important amenities are the ones inside your home.

As a resident physician at one of the local hospitals, I have been able to make the Tappan my oasis-at-home when returning from long days at work. The windows are huge - and the sunsets are gorgeous. When the weather is nice, the roof is also the perfect escape with a great view of downtown. On the first floor is a bakery (Leavend) that has some of the best baked goods in the city! My boyfriend and I are also always surprised with how much food we are able to get for seemingly so little money. And any time I have a need, the SCA management team has been so incredibly responsive and proactive with any concern.

The Tappan is a terrific place to live in if you are moving to Cleveland! I have so far been here for around 6 months, and I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of The Tappan community.

As for the building itself, it provides you with many benefits such as a gym, multiple shared spaces like the roof and the mini back garden, assigned parking spots, washing machines and driers (in all apartments), and other things that make your life easier. There is also a charming bakery on the ground floor. The Tappan also partners with local companies to provide discounted home food and laundry services (among other stuff).

Overall, this has been an ideal place for me and I definitely recommend it!

Big fan of this building! I moved here because I teach in Cleveland and wanted to live in Cleveland, not the suburbs. The building is great; brand new with lots of amenities like a gym and a bakery on the first floor. The owners hosted a "Giving Tree" this holiday season for kids living in the Merrick House. I was so moved; knowing I live in a place were people care about others. The community has hosted a number of socially distanced happy hours(grab and go) and a rooftop yoga session. I'm totally looking forward to the day when Covid doesn't rule the social interactions.

I love living at the Tappan. The building itself is clean and modern, very pet-friendly, located in beautiful and quaint Tremont with the park a short walk away, and the property owner/managers are so helpful and responsive. They are very invested in the surrounding Cleveland community and put in a lot of effort into facilitating safe and friendly ways to connect with others living in their buildings. And a great bonus is being able to walk right downstairs to grab a coffee and baked treat from Leavened!
