Bialosky Celebrates 70 Years of Design

In 1946 Jack Alan Bialosky, Sr. returned home from World War II having served in the Navy. He attended the Yale School of Architecture which exposed him to Frank Lloyd Wright, Eliel Saarinen, and Louis Kahn, before earning his degree in 1949. Exuberance in a post-WWII America, combined with confidence in his own ability, led Jack Sr. to open his own practice in his Shaker Square apartment in 1951.

He is remembered as a daring architect, a brilliant painter, and a great storyteller. He prioritized family above all else, which continues to be a tenet of our firm. We would not be together if not for him.

First Look: The City Mission

We are honored to work with The City Mission, the Cleveland-based organization that assists those striving to overcome homelessness by providing food and shelter, critical recovery services, and programs to help them build a stable and independent future.

The new 9,000 SF addition to Laura’s Home, their women and children’s facility, will include classroom space, a dedicated daycare facility, and an expanded youth program space. Coupled with the new addition, a partial renovation of their existing building will allow The City Mission to significantly enhance the level of wraparound care they provide for clients as they guide them towards a path for success for their family.

Building renovations at their Men’s Facility in Midtown will allow the nonprofit to expand bed capacity and enhance the educational and career-building opportunities. The project is anticipated to break ground in September 2021.

May Dugan Center Continues Their Commitment to the Community

Last month the May Dugan Center, the Ohio-City based nonprofit, announced a $5.6 Million capital campaign to raise funds for facility renovations and upgrades. The organization was founded in 1969, at the time of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty and the Kennedy-Johnson Economic Opportunities Act, and continues to provide aid and programming to neighbors in need.

With the urgent need to increase their services, May Dugan partnered with Bialosky to revive the facility to serve the many different needs of the community. With your support, the May Dugan Center will build on their strong track record of excellence and ensure this long-standing community asset remains for decades to come.

Iron and Wood Weave Through A Warmly Urban Low-Rise Rooted in Tremont

The Tappan is a new, 95-unit apartment building located in the Scranton corridor of Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood. The building's dark iron spot brick skin references the grittier, semi-industrial section of the neighborhood, while warm wood elements peel away to evoke an intimate, residential sanctuary.

A bright, inviting space on the corner of Auburn and Scranton is now home to Leavened Bakery, opened by professional baker Ian Herrington in October 2020. The smells of baking bread and coffee fill the air through the portal threading its way to a new public pocket park.

Discover The Tappan's design references the grittier, semi-industrial neighborhood that its residents call home on our website.
