Construction Today - December 2017 - 37

The Phoenix Building
renovation is part of Link59's
four-building development.

«

office building that will house tenants such as a medical device
company. The Link59 building will be anchored by MCPc, a large
cybersecurity firm.
The buildings on the campus will house medical labs, research
facilities, a retailer, a supermarket and a Rainbow Center for Women
and Children. In all, the project will have 250,000 square feet of
leasable space. "We'd like to do as much technology as possible, but
we want a good blend of clients," Geis says.

'The whole Link59
complex is just another part of what seems
to be a growing area.'

Further, it is working with union contractors that have apprenticeship programs, ensuring that the people involved in the project
learn new skills that they can carry with them to their next job.
"Our biggest commitment is how do we get some of the people from
the neighborhood working on buildings in their neighborhood?"
Geis asks.
Link59's responsibility to the community extends beyond the
roles it fills and the jobs it creates. Hemingway has designed the
project with its impact on the area's flooding issues in mind. The
site will include permeable pavement to limit rain runoff and an
underground retention basin will ensure that all the water will be
contained on site and not overload the neighborhood's combined
sewer systems. "We're actually improving the situation because currently the water runs off the site and we're managing it all on-site,"
Geis explains.
Hemingway has taken care to address both the economic and
public impacts of the project because what's good for the community
is ultimately good for Link59 and Hemingway itself. The company
develops projects across the entire country, but northeast Ohio has
been its home for 50 years.
Its principals believe in leveraging the profitability of those
national projects to create developments with a bigger impact back
at home - even if the margins aren't as high. "It's got to be more than
just money and development," Geis says. "It has to be a commitment
from the organization."

Geis says the project will function as problem-solver for the corridor, bringing in jobs, a grocery store and much-needed retail and
office space. "The whole Link59 complex is just another part of what
seems to be a growing area," Geis says.

Community Conscious
As a vertically integrated company, Hemingway is acting as the
developer, designer and project manager of Link59. Work began
in April and the first clients are expected to move in this February.
Construction progress has been steady. The shells for the Link59 and
Phoenix buildings, which will contain most of the office space, were
completed by late November and the Rainbow Center for Women
and Children building was about 40 percent finished. Construction
on the supermarket site was also set to begin in late November.
The project is designed to boost the surrounding community and
fill several needs, so it is natural that Hemingway has engaged local
residents and businesses throughout the design and building process. The company signed an agreement with the city and community that committed it to hire minority-owned businesses and trades
to work on at least 25 percent of the project.
