The Bowery District
Bringing Downtown Living to Akron
Historic Building Renovation
Expected Year of Completion
Redevelopment and Historic Renovation
Welty Building Company has been contracted to transform six historic buildings into mixed-use development space. The Bowery will be redeveloped for retail and residential use. These buildings will be adapted for modern use, but will keep historic details in order to preserve and celebrate Downtown Akron’s past. The project will help complete Akron’s most valuable districts for culture, entertainment, and residences.
The Bowery will include: 97 apartments, with a mix of 7 studios, 72 one bedroom apartments, and 18 two bedroom apartments. The apartments themselves will include a modern interior with a historical shell. Large historical windows give views to the surrounding city. The interior will include luxury finishes combining quartz counter tops, soft close cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and various porcelain tiles.
