A first look at NBBJ’s design for nuCLEus — a mixed-use project in downtown Cleveland — was revealed by The Plain Dealer as the project heads into planning approvals and city design reviews mid-January. Part of a greater revitalization effort for the downtown area, the project is located in the Gateway District and when completed could provide 500 residences, a hotel, 200,000 square feet of offices and 140,000 square feet of retail. The 54-story residential tower will make it the city’s fourth-tallest building.
“We believe downtown Cleveland is in the middle of a renaissance and will need buildings of this height to meet future demands,” said NBBJ Partner and Lead Designer A.J. Montero.
