Flats East Bank construction booming

It's a new era for Cleveland's birthplace, the Flats East Bank.

Wednesday, June 6, project developers, The Wolstein Group and Fairmount Properties, joined  Cleveland civic and business leaders, public partners and tenants of the Flats East Bank to sign the final steel beam of the 23-story office building before it is hoisted into place.

It is the first formal celebration of the work and progress on the project since it commenced more than seven years ago. In spite of extraordinary economic conditions that devastated commercial real estate development across the country, the Flats East Bank development team and their dedicated partners pressed forward to keep the $500 million project alive, ushering in a new vibrancy to Cleveland's waterfront.

The Flats East Bank will feature the following:

•10+ restaurants offering casual and fine dining, clubs and entertainment venues

•1200 ft. riverfront boardwalk

•State-of-the-art 23-story, 500,000 sq. ft. office tower with open-air rooftop deck for tenants including Ernst & Young and Tucker, Ellis & West

•150-room tech-forward Aloft boutique hotel

•Full-service 16,000 sq. ft. health club

•Sand beach with volleyball courts

•Environmentally-conscious design and construction

•Connectivity to key attractions around town

•140-unit waterfront residential complex
