CSU Finances Sale of Downtown YMCA Bldg.

The Cleveland State University Foundation has facilitated the purchase of the historic YMCA Building, on the southeast corner of Prospect Avenue and East 22nd Street. A Ironically, this is the location where CSU got its start, as the YMCA's education program, although the exact Fenn Building to the south was demolished recently. Y-Tech was renamed Fenn College for a major benefactor before being sold to the state in 1964 to form the core of CSU (more).

The Foundation will lend funds to the Euclid Avenue Housing Corporation to purchase the building, which will be managed by American Campus Housing the entity who runs CSU's dorms. [This is a correction to my earlier blog saying that CSU itself had purchased the building]
