1010 Euclid (Swetland Building) - 1910
Searles, Hirsh and Gavin
13 Floors
175 ft/53m
1010 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland

This building was scheduled for demolition on two occasions - in 1971 to make way for an addition to the Marcel Breuer-designed Cleveland Trust Tower, and again in 2006 when the then-Cuyahoga County commissioners planned to build a new headquarters on the site. Neither plan came to fruition and in 2014 the building was redeveloped into a residential component of "The 9", a mixed-use development that also includes the Cleveland Trust Tower and the landmark Cleveland Trust Rotunda. A notable feature of the building's restoration involved the reconstruction of the decorative cornice which had been removed decades ago.
