Bingham Building

 

1915 | Cleveland, Ohio

Walker and Weeks, Original Architect

 

The Bingham Building was constructed to house the Bingham Company, one of the pioneer hardware establishments of Cleveland originally founded in 1841.  The building is said to have been "the largest single unit for wholesale hardware merchandising in the world”. With over 620,000 sq. ft. of space, the rehabilitation included complete masonry restoration, reinstatement of the north canopy and entry, and sympathetic replacement of missing fenestration and dock doors. A penthouse was introduced at the roof to provide additional units as well as a community room and deck. In addition to the 339 residential units, the $55 million rehabilitation completed in 2004 was designed to house 350 parking spaces and nearly 20,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
