Bialosky Announces Transition Plan

Jack Alan Bialosky, Jr., FAIA announces his transition from Managing Partner of Bialosky to become Principal Emeritus of the firm his father founded in 1951 as a sole practitioner. He will continue to advise on key projects and uphold civic commitments. His new advisory role is part of a ten-year ownership transition plan that elevates two current Partners and names two new ones.

Paul Deutsch, AIA, LEED AP, and Aaron Hill, AIA, LEED AP BD+C are now Co-CEOs of the AIA Ohio Gold Medal Firm. Deutsch will continue to lead day-to-day operations, including technical, financial, and legal aspects of the firm. Hill will focus on design, talent, and culture. Together, they will champion the long-held principle of building consensus and including diverse voices in decision-making. “Our Co-CEO model is underpinned by the idea of 1+1=3,” Deutsch adds. “We’ve always believed the whole is far greater than the sum of the parts”. Each will continue to lead projects and directly serve clients.

The transition plan also names Brian Meng, RA, LEED AP and Hallie Crouch, Assoc. AIA as new Partners of Bialosky. Their ascension diversifies ownership by discipline, gender, and generation. Meng, a licensed architect with a 23-year tenure at Bialosky, will continue to lead mixed-use, multifamily, and planning projects. Crouch will continue her 12-year trajectory in leading business development, strategic visioning, and best practices.

Marco Alexzander Salon Brings Style, Comfort, and Nature to Tremont

Marco Alexzander is a boutique salon that mirrors the client’s own flair for style and design. Prominently designed as a full-glass, off-axis wedge, the salon sits on the ground floor of The Lincoln, Tremont’s newest luxury midrise. Upon entering the salon, a black marble reception desk adorned with elegant lettering anchors the space. The aesthetics of The Lincoln, whose signature features are cool-tone blue-gray bricks, earthy woods, and lush planters, directly inspired the palette for Marco Alexzander.

Designed and executed in collaboration with SLATE Interiors Studio, Marco Alexzander infuses greenery into the salon to create a sophisticated jungle, where any surface had the potential to become a landscape. The show-stopping shampoo ceiling is a lush collection of tropical plants and warm globe pendants that is best experienced  looking up from a soothing hair wash below. Marco Alexzander has successfully created a new, refreshing salon experience rooted in style, comfort, and nature. Bialosky enjoyed this collaboration with SLATE Interior Studio and look forward to future projects together.

The Pearl Receives Schematic Approval From Near West Design Review

Bialosky Cleveland presented refined plans for The Pearl, a 130-unit mixed-use apartment building, to Cleveland's Near West Design Review Committee (NWDR) on June 8, where it received unanimous Schematic Design Approval. Located on the southern edge of the Duck Island neighborhood at the intersection of West 25th Street and Columbus Road, the eight-story building provides dramatic views of downtown, the Cuyahoga River Valley, and adjacent neighborhoods.

The NWDR committee applauded the architectural design and its multi-modal sensitive site planning, which proposes redesigning the high-traffic West 25th and Columbus Road intersection creating a "lily-pad" like the public plaza and small park space. This new public amenity coordinates with the Greater Cleveland RTA 25Connects project, which turns West 25th Street into a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Corridor and the Cleveland Metropark's nearby Redline Greenway multi-use path.

The Pearl will be presented to the Cleveland City Planning Commission for final schematic approval on Friday, June 17. We are excited to continue our collaboration with project developer Realife Group t0 bring this innovative project to Cleveland’s Near West Side!
