Profile

Bratenahl is one of the older residential suburbs of Cleveland such as Shaker Heights, Lakewood, and Cleveland Heights; of these, Bratenahl and Shaker Heights have the highest per capita wealth. Bratenahl is a small community of fewer than 1,400 population inhabiting approximately 700 households, some of which are stately estates, townhouses, and condominia on the lakefront. Bratenahl shares a state representative with a predominantly black section of Cleveland. Its famous Lake Shore Boulevard has been featured in many magazines including Better Homes. Bratenahl is home to a once controversial high-rise housing project. Though many residents opposed it at the time, in 1967 two large multi-occupancy buildings of brutalist architectural design were built on the lakefront to create an opportunity for comfortable apartment dwelling in a municipality where previously only free-standing single-family housing existed. One of the two structures was originally intended to be a 180-unit rental apartment building, while the other, smaller one was a condominium from its inception. In 1976 however, the larger one also became a condominium, and the ultimate success of these two condominium associations heralded a highly beneficial diversification of housing types in Bratenahl Village since that time. Condominium suites in these two structures range in price from $150,000 to $1.0 million.
