Historic Nasa K and L Building Redevelopment back in full swing


Cleveland, Ohio 

Summit Construction is moving in full force as financing has been secured for the Nasa K and L Building Redevelopment, a Historic Tax Credits Project with Ceres Enterprises.

The two former Nasa buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, are being redeveloped into apartments and a boutique hotel.  

The L building will be a 54-unit boutique hotel called the Orbit. 

The 3-story K building will be a 84-room apartment complex with a banquet hall and event space called the Centaur. 

While the building will be remodeled with new interior finishes, mep, walls, flooring and more, many of the historic buildings’ original elements will remain to preserve historic integrity. 

Some components that will remain untouched are stairs, railings, windows, beams, corridor walls and wood wall paneling. 

Since the start of 2021, there have been between 40-60 subcontractors on site on each day, hard at work, to bring these buildings back to life. 

In the L building, (boutique hotel) wall framing is nearing completion, drywall is ongoing, all building mechanicals are roughed in and masonry restoration has began outside.

In the K building, (apartments) all demolition is complete, metal stud framing is active on all floors, underground plumbing is complete, and mechanical rough in is underway.

Sitework and roofing will commence in April, weather permitting. 

The adaptive reuse project bringing a new boutique hotel and apartments near Cleveland Hopkins airport is slated to be complete in December 2021. 

Summit Construction is providing Construction Management services alongside design professional, Sandvick Architects Inc. for the Redevelopment.
