CLEVELAND | Hilton Convention Hotel | 116m | 380ft | 30 fl | T/O

Plans for new 30-story Hilton Convention Center Hotel unveiled, project to change city skyline



Quote:
Posted: 11/12/2013

CLEVELAND - For the first time in a long time, the skyline of Cleveland will be changing and for the first time, the public was given a glimpse Tuesday of what the newest addition will look like, as architects presented their initial design for the new 30-story Hilton Convention Center Hotel to Cuyahoga County Council.

The $260 million hotel will be built on the site of the soon to be demolished Cuyahoga County Administration Building. It will be owned by the county but operated by Hilton.

“It won’t be the tallest building in Cleveland but it will be extremely prominent because of its location,” said Project Management Consultant Jeff Appelbaum.
“We have a convention center that’s largely underground so you really don’t know necessarily that the convention center is there. This becomes sort of the icon for the convention center,” he said.

The hotel will feature a four-story base or podium that will feature the hotel’s lobby, ballroom and connections to the adjacent convention center. Above will be a 26-story hotel tower that will feature around 600 rooms, all with views of both Lake Erie and the city.

Another two-story meeting place will be featured on the hotel’s 25th floor with a terrace overlooking the lake.

We just had Tracy Nichols, the city's economic development head, come into one of our classes (I'm an urban planning grad student at Cleveland State), and she was very enthusiastic about the potential for this project; considering her position, she would be, but it makes sense. The location for this is 184 Lakeside Ave East, if anyone wants to Google map-it and see the miserable-looking structure this is replacing. It's definitely going to be a big improvement.

Some good ideas. The four-story "base" should be more distinct and better reflect its surroundings.

This 30 story building is planned to be 380 feet high. The 23-floor Justice Center across the street is 420 feet high. I guess those courtrooms need high ceilings.

Demolition on the site is almost complete, just a small corner left, though clearing and prepping it will take a while longer. Sorry--I'd share pics if I had a camera to take them with.

Construction Underway on $272 Million Cleveland High-Rise Hotel

Quote:
High Rise Facilities | May 29, 2014

Construction is underway on the new Hilton Cleveland Downtown, which will be owned by Cuyahoga County. The 28-story hotel will be connected by underground passageways to the Cleveland Convention Center and the Global Center for Health Innovation. Turner Construction, Ozanne Construction and Van Auken Akins Architects have formed a joint venture to deliver the project using a design-build method.

29 foundation caissons are expected to be completed by mid-June, which are made up of 3,900 cubic yards of concrete and 330 tons of reinforcing steel, sunk to a depth of 180 feet. 8,300 cubic yards of concrete and 800 tons of reinforcing steel are anticipated for the completed foundations.
From April 28:

Great news for Cleveland!

I'm having deja vu... I feel like I wrote that same sentence on ESPN awhile back.

As the 2016 politcal race picks up steam so too does Cleveland hotel construction leading up to RNC



Quote:
Feb. 27, 2015

CLEVELAND - With just under 17 months to go before the 2016 Republican National Convention, work continues in Downtown Cleveland to get the many hotel projects completed in time to greet the 50,000 or so guests that will make their way to the city.

The centerpiece of the new crop of hotels is the $272 million, 600-room Hilton Convention Center Hotel rising on the site of the old Cuyahoga County Administration Building.

The roughly four story pedestal is up with construction to begin this spring on the 28-story hotel tower.

While the extreme cold has limited the ability to work with concrete and high winds have at time idled the giant construction crane on site, the roughly 100 workers have focused their attention inside according to officials with Turner Construction.

The early time frame for the hotel called for it to be completed April 1, 2016 and to open in June before the July 18-21 Republican National Convention.
