This project for a mixed-use residential complex was developed jointly with Snavely Development in response to an RFP issued by University Circle Inc. in the late spring of 2011. The project program included 128 residential units, 31,000 square feet of retail/commercial space and a 370-car parking garage. The Lot 45 site offers an important urban-infill opportunity to link the historic Little Italy neighborhood and the newly-energized Uptown District in Cleveland’s University Circle area. Amenities for residents include an interior courtyard with a seasonal swimming pool and gardens. The flexible ground floor commercial lease space is designed to accommodate retail, restaurants, and office uses. In addition, the plan featured live/work type studios for professors, artists and start up entrepreneurs from the neighboring Cleveland Institute of Art and other University Circle institutions. Green features of the building included an array of 1,316 solar panels generating 310 KW of electricity, façade and roof garden plantings, and a rain water collection pond in the courtyard garden.
