The 9 is the featured project of Foss Ohio 2014 Fund I, LLC and it is the largest project completed in the history of the Ohio Historic Tax Credit program. The complex consists of three historic structures spanning two city blocks at the intersections of East 9th Street, Euclid Avenue, and Prospect Avenue in the heart of downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The site consists of (1) the Cleveland Trust Tower, a 29 story, 400,000SF office high-rise; (2) the Cleveland Trust Rotunda, a stunning 38,000SF historic structure built in 1905 for Cleveland Trust with a stained glass dome built above a main floor and two mezzanine levels; and (3) the 1010 Euclid Building, a 14 story, 120,000SF office building built in 1910. Cleveland based development firm the Geis Companies purchased the complex from Cuyahoga County in February 2013 and at the time of the purchase the entire complex was vacant. Upon purchasing the complex, Geis spent $150 million transforming the complex into a 156 room Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel, 204 luxury apartments, 70,000 square feet of retail/commercial space, a 35,000 square foot Heinen’s Fine Foods grocery store, a 10,000 square foot nightclub called Vault, and a 5,000 square foot rooftop bar/sundeck called Azure. In September of 2015, Novogradac and Company awarded The 9 with the Major Community Impact award at its annual Historic Tax Credit Conference.
