Mercantile Atrium


Completed: April 2011


The Mercantile Lofts were designed by Cleveland architects Sanvick Architects for Coon Restoration and began leasing residential apartments in 2011.  CDA was the first commercial office to move into the building and Mike and Cindy have both become very involved in the ongoing success of the Mercantile Block project.  Cindy has selected colors and finishes for the Atrium and public spaces and created a Model Apartment to show prospective tenants.  The grand Atrium is a breathtaking space with a 3 story skylight, reproduced plaster molding and original and new woodwork.  Done in shades of golds and cream, the soaring atrium space is a hidden gem which is often used for community events.  The building also includes a minor atrium, accessible to the Live/Work apartments, which serves as common gathering space and is furnished as an “outdoor patio”, including trees in planters.
