New $60 Million Mixed-Use Development in Cleveland’s Downtown Combines Luxury and Sustainability

The Quarter uses Omega-Lite® ACM panels to create a timeless look while keeping green in mind  

Hatfield, PA – Located in Cleveland’s Ohio City, The Quarter is the newest sustainable apartment complex to hit the neighborhood.  This mixed-use, green building includes 194 luxury apartments and over 30,000 square feet of commercial space including a grocery store, dry cleaner, and a music school to name a few.

This state-of-the-art five-story, 270,400 square foot mixed-use housing/retail development is situated on two acres on the corner of West 25th and Detroit in Cleveland, OH.  With its timeless ambiance, modern characteristics and unique design, The Quarter offers 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and studio apartments with city, neighborhood and lake views—as well as a zero-edge heated pool, in-suite laundry, fully-equipped gym, dog park, dog washing station, fire pits, grills, and climate-controlled underground parking.

Durability and sustainability were extremely important when designing the interior and exterior of the building, with a portion of The Quarter getting its energy through solar power.

For the exquisite exterior, RC Glass in Twinsburg, OH installed over 27,000 square feet of Laminators Incorporated Omega-Lite ACM panels using Laminators’ 1-Piece, Tight-Fit installation system.  This proprietary system made panel installation easy using their durable 1-piece moldings—both "H" and "Reveal H" moldings are available providing two different design options for the panel joints.  A traditional, yet high-tech appearance was obtained at an affordable cost for all involved.

Omega-Lite panels offer a highly decorative, strong, and durable surface finish for exterior wall surfaces. Composed of a polypropylene, corrugated core between two finished aluminum sheets, these panels are non-absorbent, water-resistant and easy to maintain.

Architect and design firm, Vocon, in Cleveland, OH chose a variety of colors in Dove Grey, Charcoal Grey, Black, and Bright Metallic Silver that coincides with their modern and timeless theme.

Laminators’ Omega-Lite panels installed with the 1-Piece, Tight-Fit system guaranteed The Quarter a class A fire rating as well as met NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 285, Miami-Dade County Product Control and Florida Product Approval requirements.  Laminators Inc. manufactures high quality ACM panels that meet these stringent performance levels and provide design professionals and building owners the confidence that their cladding will withstand the most extreme conditions.

General contractor, Snavely Company, in Cleveland, OH completed the $60 million construction project in 2018.  Now, with almost all apartments rented and commercial spaces filled, The Quarter has become an integral part of Ohio City that caters to a variety of different preferences and lifestyles.
