What sets Rosetta's Cleveland office apart is that last year, it eschewed it's suburban digs and now calls the downtown National City Bank Building home. The structure hails back to the 1890's, when architects Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge designed the original building, part of which is now occupied by a Holiday Inn Express (ughville on the awning, dudes). A major addition about 30 years later makes the NCB sort of an odd historic complex, stretching around the block bordered by Euclid Ave., E. 6th St. and Short Vincent.
Here are some pix, taken in and around the building. For the record, Rosetta's offices are far above all of this. You can see their posh penthouse lounge peeking from the rear of the complex in the last pic in this series. Hop over to the article to see my buddy Bob Perkoski's pix of Rosetta's sleek offices.
For more of downtown Cleveland's architectural eye candy, here are three don't-miss clicks: the Huntington Bank Building, the Cleveland Public Library's Main Branch and the Cuyahoga County Court House.
