The new Euclid Commons community is part of an effort to transform Cleveland State University from a commuter into a residential campus.
New housing provides students amenities and a great location. The $33.6-million, 230,000-SF Euclid Commons houses more than 600 students. It features apartment-style housing and includes on-site laundry, study areas, and a game room. The building also contains administrative spaces.
(A separate project, using the same design and construction team, provided a parking garage that also contained the central MEP plant serving Euclid Commons.)
Design/build delivery keeps project moving. The design and construction teams collaborated throughout project design, exchanging reviews and feedback. The design/build process helped fast-track construction, and it reduced RFIs and change orders, because issues were resolved earlier in the project. Design was completed in one phase, and construction was completed in two phases. This was a developer-driven project.
Euclid Commons has been awarded LEED-Silver certification.
