City of Cleveland reviews Sherwin-Williams global headquarters proposal

The plans include a 36-story tower in downtown Cleveland.

CLEVELAND — Earlier this month, Sherwin-Williams revealed plans for the company’s new global headquarters in downtown Cleveland, which features approximately one million square feet within a 36-story tower.

Tuesday, the Cleveland City Planning Commission hosted a joint meeting to review the proposal application with a concept presentation. 

Representatives from Sherwin-Williams went into greater detail about the building plans, which include the aforementioned 36-story tower, plus a parking garage and a pavilion, which will include a public atrium with a barista, a retail shop and more.

As 3News previously reported, Sherwin-Williams envisions its headquarters in three parts: Office tower, pavilion and parking garage with approximately 920 spaces. The company plans to invest more than $300 million on building the new headquarters, which will be home to more than 3,100 employees.

So how soon could construction begin? Sherwin-Williams officials have said the company expects to break ground by the fourth quarter of 2021 with transition into the new space by the end of 2024.

Sherwin-Williams is also working on a new R&D center in Brecksville that will be built off I-77 at Miller and Brecksville roads. The structure will be 500,000 square feet.

“Combined, the two facilities will house more than 3,500 employees with room to accommodate future growth,” company officials said in a press release last year.

The Landmarks Commission, Downtown Flats Design Review Committee and Historic Downtown Cleveland Design Review Committee are all participating in the meeting. You can watch it in the player below:

  • Schematic presentation: Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 2 p.m.
  • Final presentation: Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 2 p.m.
