Bridgeworks grows by shrinking

Gone is the 16-story high rise and separate parking garage design concept
proposed for the Bridgeworks development at the west end of the Detroit-
Superior Bridge in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood. It is replaced by a
seven-story building that incorporates more apartments, the same number of
 hotel rooms as previously planned, and more parking spaces within a single
seven-story building (GLSD). CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE THEM.

In Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, and in the face of financial headwinds affecting projects nationwide, the long-planned Bridgeworks development underwent a major redesign that would cut costs and add more space by filling land, not the sky. Gone is a 16-story building and separate parking garage, replaced by a single, seven-story building that incorporates parking within a structure that fills out more of the 2.13-acre site at the west end of the Detroit-Superior Bridge. The revised plans will be reviewed by the city’s design-review boards in the coming weeks. Financing from the city, Cuyahoga County and Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority was arranged last spring.
