Located in Tremont, the Wagner Awning building was built in 1895 and had continuously served as s sewing factory, manufacturing everything from tents for American soldiers to awnings for Cleveland’s biggest buildings until 2015.

The redevelopment of the building began in 2015 and resulted in an historic preservation project that received local and Ohio state awards for the care and stewardship put into reconceptualizing the old sewing factory. SCA was able to restore many of the original characteristics from 1895, including the maple wood floors, timber beams and enormous windows openings which impart the building with an authenticity that is often times hard to find.



The residential portion of the building is comprised of fifty-nine 1 bedroom apartments that feature modern functionality mixed with historic character. Units range in price from $1100 - $1600. All units come with assigned parking. We are also pet friendly and have a great outdoor deck for the warmer months.

Occasionally we have an opening. To inquire about availability, feel free to reach out to us.


Wagner Awning is conveniently located in Tremont, making it the perfect location to explore surrounding neighborhoods, venture downtown, or bike along the towpath.

After the apartments opened in the fall of 2016, 12,000 square feet of office space followed on the lower floor of the building. Current tenants include Behnke Landscape Architecture, Blue Star Design, and Brite Skies.


We're proud of the community we've built at the Wagner Awning. Here are some Google reviews from our tenants.

I moved here in the middle of a pandemic with only pictures to go on. My friend, who did residency at the hospital I work at, told me about the Tremont neighborhood and said she lived here all through residency. I found the Wagner awning building (and the SCA website) online. I would have lived in any of the buildings, but this one had availability and I didn't want to miss out. It's pet friendly, my apartment is so spacious and the management goes out of their way to make it a wonderful living environment. Would not want to live anywhere else in Cleveland!

Wagner Awning is a beautiful place to live with much character - brilliantly blending the historic nature of the building with a modernized feel. The management team is amazing - very responsive, timely, and supportive; it's reassuring to know any problems or questions will get resolved. The building is pet friendly and the pet owning residents are very respectful. The location, perks, and support team truly make this an unbeatable place to live.

I loved living in this building!! Absolutely stunning unit, lofted ceilings, spacious bathroom, the appliances and cabinetry in the kitchen, the stacked washer/dryer, the FLOORS! Great location, who doesn’t want to be a stone’s throw away from the Tremont Taphouse? An animal lover’s dream! Many apartment buildings in the area have breed restrictions, weight limits, pet deposits and other fees, not here. My rescue pittie was right at home. We only left when we decided to do the whole homeowner thing.
