Architecture team faced intricate challenges with new casino in Higbee Building; Combination of historic integrity, redevelopment and new technologies
Nothing could possibly be more rewarding for an architectural firm, practicing in downtown Cleveland for over fifty years, than to take part in breathing new life into the place it calls home. The collective efforts will create thousands of new jobs while repurposing a notable Cleveland landmark, reimaging the main entry to the City, and reinvigorating restaurants, retail and hotels in the urban core. Such a dream came true for ka architects when they were tasked with assisting Rock Gaming and Caesars Entertainment to transform the historic Higbee Building into the State of Ohio’s first full-service casino.
