Turner Construction Company is pleased to announce that construction is underway on the Hilton Cleveland Downtown. The 28-story hotel will be connected by underground passageways to the Cleveland Convention Center and the Global Center for Health Innovation. Turner, Ozanne Construction and Van Aukin Akins Architects have formed a joint venture to deliver the project using a design-build method.
The project is expected to employ 2,800 workers during construction and the project team has set aggressive residency goals, as well as minority- and women-owned business (MWBE) utilization goals to ensure a diverse, local workforce.
“We are excited to begin work with our partners on this iconic tower as it becomes part of the Cleveland skyline,” said Martin Burgwinkle, project executive. He continued,“Like the Cleveland Convention Center and the Global Center for Health Innovation, the hotel will be another community success story for Cuyahoga County and downtown Cleveland, by again exceeding local inclusion goals and spurring further economic activity in the County and City.”
The $272 million, 28-story hotel will have 600 guest rooms and will feature a rooftop bar. The hotel tower is positioned atop a four-story podium that houses ballrooms, meeting space, and retail space. It is scheduled to open in 2016.
