After originally announcing that they were planning on moving their main headquarters to outside of Cleveland, Sherwin-Williams has changed their minds, and are staying put in the North Coast.
Not only is the paint giant looking to build a new global headquarters in Downtown Cleveland, but they are also adding a new R&D (research and development) center in Brecksville.
Investment in both projects is worth $600 million. The move to the new building is not expected to be made until at least 2023.
From WKYC 3News Cleveland:
The headquarters will be just west of Public Square between St. Clair Avenue and Superior Avenue inside a building that’s approximately 1 million square feet.
The R&D center, located off I-77 at Miller and Brecksville roads, “would serve as the corporate anchor for a new mixed-use development project.” It’s expected to be approximately 500,000 square feet.
Among the jobs involved after the move is complete are “professional staff, engineers and chemists.”
