DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
In a ceremony Tuesday afternoon Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, County Council President C. Ellen Connally, and Fred Geis of Geis Companies officially opened the new Cuyahoga County Administrative Headquarters.
The headquarters is located at 2079 East 9th Street and will be home to more than 600 County employees.
“The new Administrative Headquarters is a building for the residents of Cuyahoga County,” said County Executive Ed FitzGerald. “Built for accessibility and efficiency, the headquarters marks the return of the Ameritrust complex to the private sector and the revitalization of a long-dormant corner of downtown Cleveland. Surrounded by the thriving Playhouse Square district and the new Convention Center and rising hotel just blocks away, this building is just one of many exciting projects bringing new life to the city.”
Geis Companies has invested more than $260 million in the former Ameritrust complex, helping to revitalize a once-dormant section of downtown Cleveland. As a part of the East 9th Street and Prospect Avenue corner, the headquarters will be joined by a Heinen’s grocery store in the historic rotunda; apartments, office space, and retail in the Swetland building; and a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel and luxury apartments in the Tower.
