If you were considering a condo at the Park Building in Public Square, my suggestion would be to “get on it before it's too late!”
This building is quickly becoming one of the most popular among my clients and for good reason. At only 27 units, the window of opportunity gets drastically smaller with every unit sold. What is so great about the opportunity you ask? Not only will you own a piece of prime real estate in the center of Cleveland but condo owners at the Park Building own a piece of history too!
I was able to sit down with the Howells this week, the father and sons, make up the development team for the project, Howells & Howells LLC. Matt Howells, the father and construction manager on the project, made it abundantly clear that they are taking every measure to make sure the original details of the century-old office building are retained. From the brass elevator doors to the intricately crafted terrazzo floors to the marble walls in the reception area, preservation in the project has been made a top priority, as it should be.
As for the units themselves, virtually no limits are being placed on what the buyer’s imaginations can draw up in designing their homes. The Howell’s architect works hand in hand with buyers to make sure their dream becomes a reality. 10-12 foot ceilings, huge windows that look out onto the Veteran’s Memorial and 500-2000 square foot spaces, provide quite the canvas for any potential buyer. That is not even mentioning the custom glass penthouse units that are being planned above the 9th floor.
At over 60% sold, demolition has commenced and next will be construction. Buyer’s can expect their new condos starting in May or June of 2008 and the Howells expect the entire project to be completed by the end of next year.
