Tremont Park: Architectural Tribute

Mar 5, 2021 | Featured Projects

Steven Steel custom fabricated steel sign provides historic area with upscale brand image. After over a decade of planning, the 101-mile path from New Philadelphia to Cleveland is near completion. On the final leg of the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail you will find a beautiful sign demarking the trail. Steven Steel custom fabricated this sign creating an upscale image for this area.

Tremont, just located south of downtown Cleveland off of the I-90 inner belt, is one of the city’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods. The area is around Lincoln Park and is a large green area alongside historic churches, trendy restaurants and restored Victorian homes. Steven Steel created the custom architectural piece to brand the historic area. This area is one of the poorest cities in the country and the addition of the trail can add affordable transportation options for Clevelanders. Walking distances on the bridge significantly reduce commute times and provide a safer route. In addition to daily commutes, this trail also offers pedestrians access to Progressive Fields ballpark and Tremont’s many restaurants.

The Tremont sign is made from one-inch polished stainless steel and has an intricate metal leaf plate back which is made from 1 1/2 inch thick Cor-ten carbon steel. The letters and leaf design were cut using water jet technology. In order to achieve different architectural effects, Steven Steel used various types of finishes. The carbon steel plate was intentionally left uncoated to allow it to weather with age, complimenting the historic area. As a contrast to this aged feature, the stainless steel front was treated with an anti-graffiti coating to keep the art work looking like new for many years.

Steven Steel is proud to partake in the branding efforts for Tremont. The original bridge connects Tremont to the downtown area, which brought an influx of new residents, mostly Eastern European immigrants to the area. The influence of the immigrants can be seen in the variety of churches around Lincoln Park and in the architecture of the neighborhoods. A beautiful, custom fabricated sign by Steven Steel now stands to commemorate this area.
