Design-Build Contractor for Fahrenheit Restaurant at 55 Public Square Cleveland

Cleveland Construction selected nationally renowned architect and design firm Vocon as the lead interior designer for the project. Beradi+ is the building's exterior architect and historic renovation consultant.

Located within the Residences at 55 Public Square building, this 15,000-square-foot restaurant space has undergone a complete transformation to become a modern and upscale dining and event space with a rooftop patio on Cleveland’s Public Square.

The restaurant was originally designed by Vernon Stouffer and more recently occupied by John Q’s, Chef Whalen will once again remake this location as the premier destination for Clevelanders.

This space was previously occupied by John Q Steakhouse until 2013. In collaboration with Vocon, the selected Architect and Design Firm, Cleveland Construction spearheaded the design for the 15,000-square-foot restaurant, completely transforming it into a modern and upscale dining and event space on Cleveland's Public Square.

The restaurant features an array of impressive amenities, including three bars, a spacious dining room, a chef's table, and a commercial kitchen that overlooks the dining area.
