Osborn Building

 

1896, 1909 | Cleveland, Ohio

Lehman & Schmitt, Original Architects

 

The Osborn Building is a 6-7 story flat-iron shaped building  at the triangular corner formed by Huron Road and Prospect Ave. in downtown Cleveland.

The 2002 rehabilitation project included conversion of the medical office building to 67 residential apartments on floors 2-7 with retail space on the first floor.  The intent was to return the exterior to its original appearance by removing the aluminum cladding, reinstating the paneled bays and painting the brick a natural color of the building material.  The original building entries were uncovered and repairs were performed to reinstate the original intent of the entry designs as historically documented.
