About The Bowery
Welty Building Company was contracted to transform the six historic buildings of the Bowery District into mixed-use development space for retail and residential use. These buildings were adapted for modern use, but 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 includes 92 apartments, with a mix of studios and one, two and three bedroom apartments. The suites include a modern interior with a historical shell. Large historical windows give views to the surrounding city. The interior includes luxury finishes combining quartz counter tops, soft close cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and various porcelain tiles.
The project received the 2021 ‘Catalytic Rehabilitation of an Urban Block’ award from the Cleveland Restoration Society and AIA.
