If they do leave the Breen Center site, won't there be environmental cleanup necessary there as well?  

 

Probably. SHW had a paint manufacturing facility there from 1873 to 1979.

If it becomes their parking garage, maybe not.   Or they make it a riverside park, like some 'burbs do when they don't really want to need to dig.

Unless there was on-site manufacturing, chemical storage or on-site chemical disposal, it's unlikely that there would be a need for site cleanup.

I can't imagine SW would ever leave the Breen site

 

SHW is surprisingly sentimental for a Fortune 500 company.

This is perhaps a good thing. It may be a contributing factor to keeping them in Cleveland.

Sherwin-Williams HQ+R&D site news may wait until next month

 

A curveball thrown at Sherwin-Williams (SHW) regarding its favored research and development (R&D) facility development site has forced the global coatings giant to postpone announcing where it will put its R&D and headquarters (HQ) facilities.

That's according to sources who spoke off the record because they are not authorized to speak publicly about SHW's efforts to pursue new HQ+R&D facilities.

They said SHW had been preparing to publicly announce the HQ+R&D sites this week. But when SHW's favored site for its 350,000-square-foot R&D facility on Scranton Peninsula turned sour, it began discussions with owners of alternative R&D sites.

Honestly, this seems like good news if you ask me.

yeah its good news.

 

i hope they choose keeping it right where it is and redeveloping around the breen.

 

outside of that easier, safe and sentimental call, kicking off the upcoming opportunity corridor redevelopment seems another wise and forward looking choice.

 

we'll soon find out.

They just need to build R&D on the Bedrock site. Then, build an underground tunnel to connect the to the HQ 😛 

Maybe they can get the crew from Hogan's Heroes to build the tunnel.

Not being totally familiar with the site down there by the Breen Technology Center, If they decide to expand down

there and put their new R & D center there , Will this take away land for a possible future Juctice Center?

Dang. It would be nice to have those 1,000 jobs in the city of Cleveland. 

 

The bulk of the 1,000 jobs that were at the Brecksville site are now in the city of Cleveland, at Wade Park.

You've stated this several times regarding a potential move.  Serious question- and I'm not picking, but do you have an affinity for Brecksville?  I don't think there are many on  this forum who will sympathize with an outer-ring suburb losing any jobs to Cleveland.  However, I would be one of those who would dislike a loss of 1,000 jobs from Cleveland to Brecksville.  

 

Having said that, I'm hoping for some news soon on the decision.  At the regional level, a move to Brecksville wouldn't be a loss. But it would for Cleveland, which has lost enough as it is over the last 70 years.

I wonder if it is too late to consider these soon to be available 17 acres of fairly clean land here in Euclid.

^Central Middle School- yeah that could be torn down and there wouldn't be too many who would miss it.  But even that location would still be away from downtown, however.  Driving from downtown would be maybe 15 min; the Euclid bus from downtown to that location would be over a half an hour, including the stop at Windemere.

Cool, because it is coming down.

As soon as the new high school is complete.

The city should resurrect this site for ShW R&D

 

https://www.cleveland.com/business/2012/08/geis_cos_float_plan_for_lakefr.html

 

"Synergy to the airport" sounds sexy. I'm actually surprised Sherwin - or some other company wouldn't jump on this site. The drawback I guess would be whether a strict, non-public use makes sense for this stretch of waterfront. From the article it seems the city and Geis are floating a more accessible mixed plan.

The Geis plan s dead at this point.  But a plan could be put together that keeps waterfront access just like they could do along the river.

Huh, I sort of figured. Their renderings for the site plan went from "great" to "meh" pretty quickly. 

 

Anyhow waiting on the R&D site and HQ design is making me anxious lol.

Interesting article and worth reading in the context of an R&D facility. What site does this article make you think of?

We all seem to have overlooked what was an original alternative for the combined HQ and R&D; the Bedrock site.

 

Couldn't just R&D locate there, with PS/Weston for HQ?
