The Castle Apartments in Cleveland, Ohio

A LEED-certified multi-use development Cleveland, OH

Two underutilized surface parking lots are being transformed into a $60-million mixed-use development designed to provide 158 multigenerational apartment homes ranging from studios to three bedrooms and a retail hub of 20,000 square feet.

Church+State, located at the intersections of Church and State (now W. 29th) is designed to achieve LEED certification that will make the residential building the first multi-family residential LEED silver certified development on Cleveland’s west side.

The project’s developers sought a solution to navigate project complexities, deliver unique design and achieve LEED certification. The project’s location in proximity to busy cityscapes allowed for limited laydown area, meaning material deliveries had to be coordinated for just-in-time.

The developer selected the All Steel Mid-Rise Load Bearing Structural Wall Panels and the Composite TotalJoist system to solve for the unique needs of the project while saving time, maintaining safe working conditions and generating long-term cost savings.

Prefabrication of the system off-site to be delivered for just-in-time installation allows for complete load bearing systems to be installed on a compressed schedule comparative to traditional framing methods. This compressed building schedule allows for quicker occupancy to generate revenue sooner. The durable, lightweight system also saves on foundation and insurance costs.

The project is scheduled to be completed in February of 2020.
