What is now a hodgepodge of heavy equipment and concrete beams will soon be a brand new apartment and office building, called “Hubbard Park Place.” Schooley Caldwell designed this much-anticipated addition to the Short North/Italian Village area to contain 100+ apartment units, about 10,000 square feet of office space, and 155 parking spaces. Throughout the design process, one of Schooley Caldwell’s goals was […]

Lashutka Event Center to Be Completed in Fall of 2016

Planning a special event? You’ll want to see the new Gregory S. Lashutka Event Center!

Holiday Cheer

For the second year in a row, we participated in the Salvation Army’s Adopt-A-Family program for the holidays. This is a humbling and emotional effort for us. It reminds us how grateful we should be every day – both for the things we have and for the opportunity to help others. The family we adopted was homeless earlier this year and they have two young children. Thanks to help from the Salvation Army, they do have a home now but […]
