A small village in the heartof Cleveland, Tremont is a dynamic neighborhood boasting a historic district around Lincoln Park, first-rate dining, boutique and big-box shopping, an array of housing choices and a community that is active and involved in its renaissance.
The Ukrainian Museum-Archives has always been located in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood and was founded in 1952 by displaced scholars who took on the mission of collecting and preserving items from Ukrainian history and culture. The UMA's collection includes many rare items. Over the last two decades the museum has built a state-of-the-art facility to house its archives properly as well as restore its historic building, which sits right on Tremont's Lincoln Park.

New developments are cropping up throughout Tremont in response to its rising population. What has residents particularly excited, however, is the renovation that turned the historic Union Gospel Press building into apartments and retail space. “Folks are thrilled,” says Chris Garland, executive director for Tremont West Development Corp., of the rejuvenation of the long vacant building. Once home to Cleveland’s first college and a bible printing operation, the massive building will open sometime in late spring or early summer as Tremont Place Lofts. In addition to 102 units for lease, the site will also house “hotel suites,” which Garland describes as short-term lease apartments for visitors from out of town who don’t want to stay in a traditional hotel. “It’s a fabulous structure and definitely fits what we would call adaptive reuse,” says Garland.
