Sandvick Architects kicked off 2016 by doing what we do best – renovation. This time we turned those skills inward to our own website while increasing the firm’s social media presence. As we reflect on 2015, it seems the one word to best summarize the past year is…busy. With nearly 25 active projects in the office, we figured it was time to stake claim on a small piece of cyberspace to provide updates on all the happenings SA is currently involved in. But spreading word to the masses requires a slightly different kind of platform and crowded banking hall these days (Union Trust Co., 1924). The new blog will be a place to share work progress, industry news, and interesting histories that are discovered in the buildings/archives/communities we interact with on a daily basis.
2015 ended with notable success, not only for SA but for the city of Cleveland as a whole. The historic Union Trust Company, formerly known as the Huntington Bank Building at the corner of E.9th Street and Euclid Avenue, was awarded Ohio’s $25 million catalytic historic tax credit in December. Cleveland Athletic Club on Euclid Avenue was awarded a $5 million credit, and the Micro Living at Long Street project in Columbus was awarded $1.3 million as well. SA is proud to be a leader in the three projects as work begins to restore functional use to these historic resources. You can read more on all the awarded applications from OHPTC Round 15 here.
