Some of the New Projects In Downtown Cleveland

Recommended Posts

The Cleveland Clinic's famous heart center is finally getting a building of its own. The new heart building will be the largest structure on the Clinic's main campus, and will create a new entryway into the entire Clinic. The Center will consist of three parts: the outpatient offices and atrium (the large curving building in front), a technology building that will house interventional labs and operating rooms (to the rear at right), and a 10-story hospital tower (to the rear, left). The building will take up space that is currently occupied by the VV parking garage at Euclid and E. 93rd, as well as the plaza containing the "Man Helping Man" statue near the main entrance.

L.A.-based HOB Entertainment, Inc. plans to turn the former Woolworth Building on lower Euclid Avenue into the House of Blues Club. Preliminary plane include a 1,000-seat theater and a 230-seat restaurant. This will be the 8th House of Blues Club in the country. In addition to fronting on Euclid Ave., the club will have an entrance on E. 4th St.

This is a condominium project well underway in the Warehouse District. It is an 11-story building that is being build on top of an existing 3-story parking garage. There will be approximately 80 suites; 80% of which will be for sale, with prices starting at $370,000 each. This is a $20-$30 million project, and will include a fitness center, concierge, rooftop garden area, and even a car wash

The new headquarters building for the regional public utility will be home for the administrative, engineering and legal staff for NEORSD. The project includes complete renovations of an existing vacant office building and a new 48,000 sq-ft expansion, creating a new 89,000 SF facility. The building is located in MidTown, at East 40th Street and Euclid Avenue, and creates a prominent entrance facing the street. Also included is a public meeting room for NEORSD functions, along with other public forums. This room was designed to have a separate, highly visible entrance on to a carefully landscaped plaza to the west of the building. CGBA planned the office areas for a staff of nearly 200

The K&D Group and Architectural Concepts are constructing this development, which will include 2 apartment buildings along the old Superior Viaduct in the Flats. One building will contain 30 apartments, and the second building will contain 132 apartments, and would be started after the first building is half-rented. Additionally, an existing five-story building on the opposite side of the Viaduct will be converted into office space. Part of the plan includes a sloping public park that extends to the Cuyahoga River. Project leaders hired a N.Y. firm, SFX Entertainment, to help turn the Viaduct into an art/music festival type setting. The Viaduct portion is expected to open in the Summer of 2001. As of 4/24/02, the first building (the easternmost one) is complete, the second building looks complete, and a third building is at least halfway done. The tops of the buildings can be seen from the Main Ave. bridge. Another view. Recently added to the overall plan is a building on the opposite side of the Viaduct, which is being converted into office space

The International Community Council plans to convert the vacant Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Terminal into a local heritage center that would focus on the various cultures found in Northeast Ohio. The terminal is in the Flats, near Sherwin-Williams and the base of the new U.S. Courthouse. A formal fund-raising campaign has begun to raise the $6 million needed (call 330-864-6204 for details). The building would likely contain areas for visitors to view films, lectures, performances, and exhibits. The top floor, which was destroyed in a fire years ago, would hopefully be rebuilt as part of this restoration

University Hospitals of Cleveland is building a six-story, 320,000 sq-ft, $110 million facility on 3.5 acres of undeveloped land at Cornell Rd. and Circle Dr., just east of UH and Case Western Reserve University. The project incorporates over 100 laboratories, as well as a lecture hall, conference room, and research animal facilities, more than tripling the size of current workspace that researchers occupy at CWRU's Biomedical Research Building.

Zaremba construction announced official plans for the "avenue district" located on east 12th st. downtown cleveland. It's sort of near playhouse square. It will include green space and two new mid-rise buildings on the spot of existing parking lots. It will provide residential above retail on the ground floors.
