Cleveland State University plans to mothball most of Rhodes Tower

Dec. 5, 2011
Officials say building is poorly designed and needs $37 million in renovations

From The Cleveland Plain Dealer: Cleveland State University officials plan to mothball portions of Rhodes Tower, the symbol of the downtown campus, because it would cost too much to renovate the 40-year-old building. The structure is a 17-story tower that sits atop the four-story Michael Schwartz Library. The tower eventually will be vacated except for a few floors housing information technology and computer services. It would cost about $37 million to renovate and upgrade the tower, the CSU officials have concluded that would be a poor investment.
