Downtown Kent’s skyline continues to evolve with the addition of The Landmark at Kent, the newest addition to Fairmount Properties’ College Town Kent mixed-use development. The five-story, 42,000 sq. ft. building, under construction since March, will include 32 high end loft style residences and a street level restaurant, the Akron-based Italian themed Bricco.

The Landmark at Kent is located on Erie Street in the heart of Kent’s new $100 million downtown mixed-use district and is a unique and sophisticated living experience unlike any other in the Midwest. Restaurants, trendy shops, a boutique hotel, nightlife and professional offices are all within steps of the resident’s front door. With the Kent State Hotel and Conference Center and PARTA’s brand new 365 parking space Kent Central Gateway garage directly across the street, this building ensures residents’ convenient access to the surrounding community and direct connectivity to the Kent State University campus via the recently opened university Esplanade.

With a variety of dining experiences from white table cloth to fast casual to wine bars and coffee shops, residents can immerse themselves in the vibrant downtown streetscape both day and night. At home, residents will enjoy luxury living with spacious floor plans, high-end finishes, walk-in closets, in suite washer and dryer and a private fitness room. Other amenities include stainless steel appliances, Juliet balconies, ceiling fans, high efficiency lighting and exposed ductwork providing an urban loft experience.

The Landmark at Kent is truly a retreat for young professionals, empty nesters and those looking for sophisticated urban living. Available in April, 2014, The Landmark at Kent is now accepting residents. For more information, contact Adam Branscomb at 216-514-8700, extension 106 or visit
