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.

 

Back to writing....

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!

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!

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

We should all email him after the announcement and thanks for the hot tip!

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!

This is such great news. As much as I'd really enjoy seeing a new tall tower on public square, after visiting Nashville last week, I'd be more than happy with a 30-40 story office building on the Jacobs lot.

 

I love this plan because it will mean three things...

 

1. A new HQ tower on Public square

2. Density on WH District lots (with hopefully spin-off development in the future)

3. A huge boost to Scranton getting developed.

 

You can't ask for much more.

Great news for Cleveland all around, but I have to admit to being *slightly* disappointed that the tallest building in the project will "only" be 30 stories.  But if the 1.45M s.f. HQ is going to be spread out over P.S. and the Weston lot, that has to mean there will be several other buildings in the same range.  As many have said, our skyline is skewed towards the east and needs balancing.  It sounds like this project will do that.  Hopefully, everything meshes well and the TT, Key Tower, and 200 PS are augmented by the nearby density.

For reference should we expect something the size of One Cleveland Center or Tower at Erieview? Sorry if this is a dumb question.

 

OCC is 30 floors and Erieview is 40, I believe

One Cleveland Center is 31 stories so probably that aka 450 feet-ish.

The Lumen is 34 stories and is just short of 400 feet.  

 

But that's residential which has lower ceiling heights than commercial.

With several thousand more people working downtown, this project will be a catalyst for more residential development. Imagine several tall apartment or condominium towers, like Lumen. Critical mass here we come!

And think of all of that space SHW is leaving. Office space for numerous new companies or apartments for hundreds of new residents. And prime riverfront land for new development.

Really pleased if this is the outcome. A 30 story tower PLUS additional infill on those lots PLUS activation of essentially empty land on the river PLUS the necessary connections between them and the additional development that could create is a win win win. Density over height for me. I’m perfectly happy with Key, TT and 200PS being our big three. They nicely balance the top of the skyline.  This will do wonders to start filling in the gaps. Couldn’t be happier!

And you can't get any closer to the Rapid.
