The renovation of the historic Stager-Beckwith Mansion on Cleveland’s Millionaire’s Row provides a new Conference Center, Administrative Offices, Sports Center, Classrooms and President’s Living Quarters for the former Myers University within the 60,000 sf building.

MCM was closely involved with the University Boards to secure historic tax credits and conservation easement equity. MCM assisted in structuring a financing package to utilize Cleveland Empowerment Zone loans. MCM’s ability to manage and work within a public, private and institutional partnership was a key factor to the project’s success.

The preservation of the historical fabric challenged the Team when renovating and updating this 140 year old building. All preservation guidelines were carefully met while achieving the installation of new mechanical, electrical and plumbing infrastructures. In addition to the challenges often found in a historic restoration, MCM successfully managed the multiple parties involved on the project, including Board Members and public and private institutional partnerships.
