The long suffering John Hartness Brown complex in downtown Cleveland, is
a series of empty facades at 1001-1101 Euclid Ave. That blighted expanse of real estate now is earmarked for 228 apartments, with 20,000 square feet of retail along the street and 230 parking spaces tucked inside.
The exterior features 4 distinct terra cotta facades on Euclid Avenue and one facade at the rear of the complex comprised of terra cotta and cast iron. Ram Construction Services have been contracted to handle the historic facade restoration consisting of terra cotta repair and reglazing, tuck pointing and recreating the lost architectural details with GFRP. Once complete the newly named “Euclid Grand” will help tie the newly renovated Play House Square into the downtown core via Euclid Avenue.
