Bialosky + Partners Choose Health-Tech Corridor for the HealthLine
Bialosky and Partners, an award-winning architectural and design firm, relocated to 6555 Carnegie Avenue in the Midtown neighborhood of Cleveland. Established in 1957 by Jack Bialosky, Bialosky has grown from one drafting table into a multigenerational nationally recognized firm. Their nationally acclaimed portfolio in residential, commercial, industrial, and recreational projects includes the headquarters for Parkwood Corporation, American Greetings, and Progressive Insurance.
Jack Bialsoky Jr. joined in 1987. Father and son have grown the firm over the past twenty years from 7 employees to 34. As part of planned growth and expansion, Bialosky is anticipating adding 8 full-time employees over the next 5 years.
To accommodate their strategic growth, Bialosky actively began searching for space as they outgrew their owner occupied space in Shaker Square. The new space needed to be more efficient, functional, and open, and they found it in Hemingway’s Midtown Tech Park at 6555 Carnegie Avenue.
They were able to apply their design and architectural skills to the 10,400 square feet of the 2nd floor at 6555 Carnegie Avenue. 6555 is part of Hemingway Development’s Midtown Tech Park Campus, and is home to some of Cleveland’s most innovative companies. To help bring the $1.2 million project to fruition the City assisted with a $40,000 NDP Grant and an $80,000 Vacant Property Initiative Forgivable Loan.
Jack Bialosky Jr., senior managing principal, said the firm was attracted to the area by construction of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority’s HealthLine bus/rapid transit line on Euclid Avenue and efforts to attract technology-based tenants to the neighborhood.
“With all the tech businesses there, we think there is going to be a lot of good development that will make it a very desirable neighborhood,” Bialosky said,
Tracey Nichols, Cleveland Economic Development Director, said it’s exciting to assist companies that want to expand in the city. “We are excited that Bialosky + Partners has committed to be in Cleveland,” Nichols said. “The growing architectural firm is an important addition to the Health-Tech Corridor, an area that is attracting health tech, high tech and design professionals.”
The architecture firm is lead by three Bialoskys who all hold master’s degrees in architecture from Yale University.
“Jack Biolosky, Sr. born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1925 was trained at Yale under some of the most influential and imaginative architects of the 20th century, including Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn. He traveled the globe as a Lieutenant Jr. Grade in the Navy, (served aboard an aircraft carrier during World War II), and still declared Cleveland as one of the most opportunistic places in the world.” (http://www.bialosky.com/about/leadership/)
The firm has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects as an AIA Ohio Gold Medal Firm, the highest honor awarded by its peers.
