The former Cleveland Athletic Club closed its doors in 2007 and left the building abandoned and neglected for nearly a decade. Constructed in 1912, the 16-floor building was converted to 163 apartments, residential amenities, and commercial space. The original 12th floor pool has been fully restored as well as the main gathering room on the 7th floor. This $60 million project consisted of exterior repairs to the existing terra cotta and replacements and restoration of more than 1,000 windows. After several years of restoration and rehabilitation, the building had its grand opening on October 2, 2019 and is now known as The Athlon at CAC.
