Marous Brothers Construction provided General Contracting Services to renovate the exterior of the “Pointe at Gateway” complex, which consisted of four landmark buildings: the Koller Building, the Hat Building, the Finance Building, & the Point Building. Each building has wonderfully preserved examples of significant architectural elements prevalent in Cleveland around the early 1900’s. Strategically located at the apex of the Historic Gateway Neighborhood, the Pointe is in the midst of an area where more than 120,000 people work, dine and shop daily. The project was a focal point of the Historic Gateway Neighborhood Redevelopment Program and was considered crucial to the reestablishment of permanent residents in Gateway Historic District. Throughout the project unique challenges arose, which is to be expected when renovating numerous turn-of-the-century buildings with superstructures varying from wood-frame construction to reinforced concrete construction. Storefronts were carefully restored in accordance with the Secretary of Interior Standards in order to preserve or replicate the ornate details of the original storefronts.
We started to work together when Chip and Scott were out in the field hanging doors. They’ve come a long way, because they’ve done the work themselves. They’re hands-on people, giving them the control that makes them good at what they do. If you need a builder to rely on, they’re the one.
