The groundbreaking (actually, a ceremonial wall painting) for our new offices was August 7. By the end of the year we will be joining other organizations in the Cleveland Environmental Center, a rehabbed 1918 bank building on the corner of Fulton Road and Lorain Avenue in the Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland. The project aims to be the first commercial green building retrofit in Ohio, merging an historic retrofit with cutting-edge, affordable, green building principles.

Here are some recent photos.

Mayor Jane Campbell (speaking above), Councilmen Joe Cimperman, Matt Zone, and Nelson Cintron, and a host of neighborhood and environmental activists kicked off the rehabilitation of the Cleveland Environmental Center on August 7. The ceremony was in the the former bank lobby of the historic building.

One of the upper floors of the old bank building, gutted and ready for renovation.

Contractors are drilling 300-foot deep wells under the parking lot behind the building for the geothermal heating/cooling system.

The building will soon have a "green roof" covered with vegetation to provide natural cooling and stormwater retention.
