Additionally, the building will feature two above-ground walkways west of Public Square along Superior Avenue and West Third Street portions.

Furthermore, the new glassy tower will include programmable multi-coloured light strips in the middle of its east and west sides.

Pickard Chilton Architects served as the design architect for the global headquarters.

Construction on the headquarters tower in downtown Cleveland is planned to start before this year-end and is scheduled for completion in late 2024.

Last month, Sherwin-Williams started construction on the 600,000ft² Research and Development (R&D) centre in Brecksville, US.

The new R&D centre is intended to serve as the corporate anchor for a new mixed-use development project.

The firm plans to invest a minimum of $600m for the development of the two projects, which are expected to house more than 3,500 employees with the potential to accommodate future growth.
