(Cleveland) - Sherwin-Williams officials on Tuesday spoke to a joint meeting of four city commissions and committees, offering detailed plans for the company's new headquarters complex, planned for just off Public Square, and extending into the Warehouse District.
The proposal calls for a 36-story office tower, a parking garage, and a Learning and Development Center, all of which will be connected with enclosed sky bridges. It would replace Sherwin-Williams' longtime headquarters in Tower City Center. The company's corporate director of real estate, Tim Muckley, described the current building as one with "antiquated mechanical systems, challenging floor plans, and elevators that have a mind of their own, sometimes." Muckley said the new offices would help Sherwin-Williams attract some of the best and brightest employees, and help prevent a "brain drain" from Northeast Ohio.
The Cleveland Planning Commission, the Downtown/Flats Design Review Committee, the Landmarks Commission, and the Warehouse Historic District Design and Review Committee all heard the presentation. They will all meet separately to offer their input.
