2006 Ohio Historic Preservation Office Award Recipients

Burnside Construction Company, Marous Brothers Construction and Sandvick Architects

When the 11-story Bingham Warehouse was built in 1915, it was said to be "the largest single unit for wholesale hardware merchandising in the world." A $70 million renovation has converted 'The Bingham' into 340 loft apartments with indoor parking and 25,000 square feet of retail space, taking advantage of the Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit offered through the Ohio Historic Preservation Office. Completed in three phases, the project was able to obtain financing despite the city's rising vacancy rate by offering premium amenities and introducing a housing product unlike any other in Cleveland's Historic Warehouse District. For years, Cleveland had been seeking a grocer willing to invest in the neighborhood. Now a full-service market and deli in The Bingham serves thousands of Clevelanders who call downtown 'home.' Renovation of The Bingham had an immediate economic impact, creating 300 construction jobs, and about 25 property management jobs after construction was done. Today The Bingham stands out among its neighbors as a treasured landmark and as one of the largest buildings that has been refurbished in the Warehouse District.
