Crews begin more transformation at PlayHouseSquare

CLEVELAND - PlayhouseSquare announced last year that the area will undergo a significant transformation that will include a sign, lighting gateway entry points and a chandelier at a prominent intersection.

The highlight of the project is the 20-foot-tall “chandelier spectacular, which will be an LED chandelier with 4,600 crystals that hangs over Euclid Avenue at East 14th Street. Its design fits the style of chandeliers found in theater lobbies in the district.

“This is the jaw-dropper,” said Chief Creatologist Danny Barnycz. “This is what people will feel compelled to come and see, to photograph. We envision this becoming a true Cleveland landmark.”

Crews worked earlier Thursday hanging the trusses that will support the new 20-foot-tall chandelier that will hang over Euclid Avenue at E. 14th Street. Watch the video above to see some of the overnight work.

The project is expected to cost about $16 million and will be finished in 2014.
