How soon is "imminent?" any hint on the surprise?

 

As in, by the end of the month. But you don't have to wait that long. I will tell you all this afternoon. Writing the blog now.

 

The surprise is the R&D site. It's a site that hasn't been mentioned by anyone during this whole process.

 

And forget the building height for crying out loud. Think jobs, people. The most important part about any of this is the thousands of jobs and the spin-off development that will result.

Whelp...I hear ya Ken and of course the most important news is that SHW remains based here. Then we benefit from any future growth. Sure that's more important than a building. I'm just thinking why can't we have it all - HQ and a skyline presence. Other cities seem to do it without even trying. Onward AND upward Cleveland.

Hoping it’s the triangle at Prospect & Superior or the crater at Huron & Ontario. This is like Christmas Eve!

Midtown or Scranton are my guesses 

 

My thoughts were perhaps HQ on the Bedrock site with R&D being built on Scranton.

The more I think about it the more sense this makes.

I'm continually refreshing and killing my productivity. You need to hurry so I can get back to work.

Hopefully this gets picked up by cleveland.com in one of those "Cleveland blogger reports..." type deals.  They've done it before.  Then, it can start filtering its way through the media ecosystem and get Cleveland some early, positive pub around the country.

 

What a way to start the decade!

With all the speculation going on, I’ll go with Bedrock for HQ and R&D at collision bend around where amphitheater was.  Perhaps keeping the newer section of Breen as well.

R&D on nuCLEus site?   😄

Brecksville? It would be disappointing but #1 is that the headquarters remains in Cleveland.

That was already mentioned before for R&D facility though so will be ruled out

Nope. It's a site that "hasn't been mentioned by anyone during this whole process."

Okay, so not Atlanta, Dallas, or Charlotte then either. I guess 'noted site selection consultant' John Boyd was wrong on this one, folks.

Sherwin-Williams picks Cleveland sites for HQ, R&D facilities; announcement "imminent"

 

According to multiple sources, Sherwin-Williams (SHW) has made its decision on where to build its billion-dollar new headquarters buildings and new research & development facilities. The same sources, who spoke off the record because they were not authorized to speak publicly yet, said the announcement of the locations will be made before the end of this month.

SHW will consolidate up to 6,000 office and research jobs from around Greater Cleveland and even around the country to downtown Cleveland. SHW currently has 3,500 full-time employees downtown already. The consolidation of up to another 2,500 jobs here will be a huge boon to downtown and surrounding areas.

The sites that the fast-growing global coatings firm has chosen for its HQ+R&D is both a surprise and not a surprise. The unsurprising part is that SHW's 1.45 million square feet HQ will be built on the parking lots owned by the Jacobs and Weston groups on the west side of Public Square.

The site for the 350,000-square-foot R&D facility is a surprise, however -- on Scranton Peninsula across the Cuyahoga River from SHW's existing John G. Breen Technology Center and SHW's existing HQ in the Landmark Building.

^That feels like a “best of both worlds” kind of thing to me! 

 

And I hope it has the bridge from the riverfront convention center renderings.

I hate when an article gets posted and it's right at the bottom of a page! Ugh!
