Magnolia Clubhouse


Located in the University Circle neighborhood of Cleveland, the Magnolia Clubhouse campus consists of two buildings and a coach house on Magnolia Blvd. which were designed by renowned architects Frank Meade and J. Milton Dyer. The Krueger Group, working in a design/assist role with DLR│Westlake Reed Leskosky, revitalized both buildings one floor at a time to eliminate the functional obsolescence of each building while maintaining their respective architectural integrity.

From the outset of the project, it was obvious that the buildings were structurally sound but needed cosmetic and infrastructural upgrades that aligned with their current and future needs and to bring each space up to professional quality standards. Upon completion, the newly renovated campus maximizes the existing space while incorporating elements that are worthy of the organization’s mission, interior features include:

  • Professional video recording studio.
  • Multiple workspaces with individual computer stations.
  • Expanded business commons.
  • Renovated member dining rooms and café.
  • Renovated executive offices.
  • Renovated grand staircases at both buildings..
  • Dedicated board room.
  • Multiple conference rooms.
  • Renovated high-end resale shop.

Additionally, the following exterior scope of work was completed:

  • Complete rehab and painting of primary elevations of both buildings.
  • Complete rehab and staining of garden pergola.
  • Grading and finishing of area between buildings to serve as courtyard for members to mingle.  Included installation of (6) round perforated steel picnic tables and umbrellas, and raised wolmanized planting boxes.

With tremendous care and respect taken in maintaining the architectural integrity of these Cleveland landmarks, the Magnolia Clubhouse buildings serve as The Krueger Group’s 12th and 13th buildings successfully renovated on Magnolia Drive.
