The Central YMCA is an historic building in the Central neighborhood on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio. It was designed by the Cleveland architectural firm Hubbell & Benes and constructed for use as a residential building in 1911 by the Young Men's Christian Association of Greater Cleveland. The building served as one of the locations used by the Cleveland YMCA School of Technology, which eventually became Fenn College and ultimately Cleveland State University 1964.[2] Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984,[1] the Central YMCA building was purchased by Cleveland State University in September 2009 and later renovated for use as what are today known as the Heritage Suites student apartments.[3]
