  1. Yeah Cleveland!! Actually, I have the pleasure of living in Cleveland and this project will go out for bid in a few weeks and is expected to be complete by early summer 2010. Some pretty cool public art will identify the building to anyone passing by. This project is located in the heart of our downtown, adjacent to two pro-sports arenas (Cavaliers & Indians) and within 2 blocks of a major bike route, the Euclid Corridor.
