The Tappan | Sustainable Community Associates

A local developer plans to build on its previous work in Tremont, writes Jordyn Grzelewski for The Plain Dealer, with a mixed-use, mixed-income project in the near West Side neighborhood’s Scranton corridor.

Sustainable Community Associates, a development group made up of three Oberlin College graduates who made a name for themselves by successfully redeveloping a blighted block in their college town, will present plans for The Tappan project to Tremont’s community development corporation next week.

Plans for construction of The Tappan came about after Naomi Sabel, Josh Rosen and Ben Ezinga successfully redeveloped the former Ohio Awning & Manufacturing Co. property that sits across from the planned Tappan site at Scranton Road and Auburn Avenue.

Now, they plan to erect a four-story building that will include 95 apartments and a first-floor bakery.
