The ironwork is now complete and soon the skin will begin to go up. The trades are hard at work on the lower floors, building block walls, and duct work is beginning to appear in the basement.
The site is located at the former site of AmeriTrust’s P&H Building, south of the historic Cleveland Trust Rotunda and the former 29-story AmeriTrust Office Tower, at the intersection of Prospect/Huron and East 9th Street. The building once housed the massive data-processing center and Bond and Stock Administration for the bank’s Corporate Trust Division. The 8-story County Administration Building, replacing the 5-story P&H Buildings, is planned to be completed in July, 2014, to be joined in the fall of 2014 by Heinen’s, the first full-service grocery store in downtown Cleveland, to locate on the first and second floors of the Rotunda, and the first floor of the 1010 Euclid Building.

Since changing my LinkedIn profile photo, several people have said, “That is an interesting photograph, but what is it?” The answer is that this is the stained glass dome 85 feet above the banking floor of the Cleveland Trust Rotunda.
A closer view reveals more of the incredible detail. . .

Just below the Tiffany-style dome of Cleveland’s historic Cleveland Trust Rotunda, between the graceful columns, is a series of beautiful murals painted by Francis Davis Millet, who died at age 65 in the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912.
