Cuyahoga County Administration Building

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.

    1. Thank you, Nick. I have been so busy with my book of the history of Cleveland’s Saint Luke’s Hospital that I have not been able to focus on this project as much as I would have liked. And as you well know, these projects tend to have periods of apparent inactivity, although much is being done! Keep coming back, my friend!

Please leave a comment! I am looking forward to your thoughts!
