Residences at Leader: K&D's fourth historic renovation and conversion to a mixed-use Commercial Space and Luxury Apartments in Downtown Cleveland


In 2015, K&D closed on the financing for the $62 million historic renovation and conversion of the Leader Building. Located prominently at the southwest corner of E. 6th Street and Superior Avenue, the 15-story stone masonry building, originally constructed in 1913 as the headquarters for the Cleveland Leader newspaper, is being transformed into a luxury high-rise apartment building with 224 one and two bedroom apartments above 22,000 sq. ft. of street-level retail and 37,000 sq. ft. of commercial office space on the second and third floors. The newly renovated mixed-use building is known as Residences at Leader.

This is K&D’s fourth major historic renovation Downtown, and follows the highly successful and acclaimed Residences at 1717, The Residences at 668 and The Residences at Hanna. First occupancy began in February of this year and is expected to be complete this August.

Berardi + Partners of Columbus is the Project Architect, and they have designed high-end finishes and luxury appointments to meet the demands of young professionals and empty nesters alike. Units feature granite countertops, ENERGY STAR stainless steel appliances, beautiful white shaker cabinets with soft close, upscale oil rubbed bronze lighting package with coordinating faucets, hard surface flooring with carpeted bedrooms, in-suite washer and dryer, fireplace in all two-bedroom suites, and are wired for high-speed internet and cable television. Residences at Leader also features all-LED lighting and individually controlled high efficiency heating and air conditioning. A spacious 24-hour on-site fitness center, on-site party room, business center, and valet parking will complement the other building amenities. The stunning lobby with golf finishing features custom Tiffany elevators.
