Lebron James Transformation of Tangier into Akron opens for tours – Natural Self Esteem

It’s a date that holds special meaning for those living in the 330 area code.

And this March 30th marks Akronites’ first opportunity to venture into former Tangier since the LeBron James Family Foundation took over the iconic entertainment complex.

The transformation is ongoing and work has been in progress since the sale in 2020.

The foundation plans to open the doors for a sneak peek to the public on March 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for a special 330-day celebration featuring food trucks like Swenson’s Drive-In, Kinetic Vegan, Cheezylicious Food Truck and Cleveland Cookie Dough, along with tours of the Three Thirty house.

“House Three Thirty is for the entire community, so it’s important to us that we open our doors and share what we’re building while the renovation is underway,” said Michele Campbell, executive director of the LeBron James Family Foundation. “We are very excited about the opportunities, jobs and experiences House Three Thirty will bring to our I Promise families and all visitors.

“It will be transformational for our community and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate the 330th day.”

The LeBron James Family Foundation's House Three Thirty is located in former Tangier on West Market Street in Akron.

If you haven’t visited West Market Street yet, you’re probably driving right past Old Tangier, as you probably won’t recognize the place.

It looks a little less spiffy with its new earth-toned exterior color, and the iconic Moroccan dome is gone, too.

And the changes are even more dramatic inside.

The only thing that is still known is the legendary cabaret. The interior of the entertainment room is being restored, but the furnishings and decor remain the same.

The Foundation plans to use the venue as a gathering place for I Promise School and Program students and their families. And as in the past, once House Three Thirty goes live, it will host public concerts and speaker space.
