Historical Projects

Gateway Project

The Gateway District is Cleveland’s largest geographic area of adaptive re-use and historic preservation. It is an area transformed by tremendous investment and economic development.

What does this mean? It means you are surrounded by stories as you walk along Euclid Avenue, East 4th Street, the Gateway Sports Complex and other parts of the Gateway District. Stories of dime stores, markets, banks, arcades and skyscrapers…Stories of people who helped build the foundation for what Cleveland is and what it will become…Stories of the passion, vision and hard work of those who believe in Downtown Cleveland.

Charming residential buildings, welcoming hotels and bustling restaurants now exist where an ugly expanse of crumbling parking lots and decaying buildings once met the eye. The location of the Gateway Sports Complex, once home of the Central Market, now welcomes sports fans, concert-goers and conference attendees. New apartments and restaurants make the most of the magnificent department store buildings of old. And, the East 4th Entertainment District has revived a street once filled with closed storefronts and vacant buildings. These are only a few of the significant changes that have taken place in the recent past. The story of rise and fall, decline and rebirth, continues even now with plans for the Schofield Building and John Harkness Brown.

Today, as many as five million people a year visit the Gateway District, and all of them have been touched, in one or way another, by the history and architecture of the neighborhood.

Again, given Garrett & Associates long history and position within the downtown Cleveland construction industry, we have completed innumerable projects in the Gateway District Area, including:

  • Historical Record Research
  • Existing Conditions Surveys
  • Utility Surveys
  • ALTA Surveys
  • Comprehensive Easement Investigations
  • Detailed Structural Measurement Surveys
  • Construction Control
  • Construction Layout
  • Building Settlement Surveys
  • Earth Retention Monitoring
  • Record Measurements and Record Drawings
  • Boundary Surveys
  • Topographic Surveys
  • Air Rights Surveys (vertical subdivision)

Founded in 1930 as the Garden Center of Cleveland, Cleveland Botanical Garden today is a not-for-profit organization that welcomes close to 150,000 guests each year and provides plant-science lessons to 12,500 schoolchildren annually.

Given our extensive knowledge and collection of survey records related to the University Circle Area, the Botanical Garden Team engaged Garret & Associates to perform various surveys as part of their rebirth in the last decade, including:

  • Historical Record Research
  • Existing Conditions Surveys
  • Utility Surveys
  • Record Measurements and Record Drawings
  • Boundary Surveys
  • Topographic Surveys
  • ALTA Surveys
