Project Description


This 11-story office building located in downtown Akron, Ohio is part of the city’s skywalk system. Every day this skywalk connects lawyers & other legal workers to the courthouse. Our field assessments target the Law Building’s skywalk low lighting & poor air quality, & the outdated lobby & public restrooms as part of the problem. The first phase includes repairing many leaks into the masonry building, both in the basement & roof level, redesigning the public skywalk, & renovating the outdated public areas. The second phase converts the top eight floors into more than 90 residential apartments for Akron’s legal workforce or local business owners. The third final phase converts the rooftop into an upscale restaurant & partial rooftop garden space for the residents.
