The Sherwin-Williams Company today announced the key external partners it selected to build its new global headquarters in downtown Cleveland and its new R&D center in the Cleveland suburb of Brecksville. Vorys was named as legal counsel and economic development counsel.

"The key partners we have selected are aligned with our vision of creating a next generation workplace that supports serving our customers at the highest level, retaining and attracting top talent, and igniting creativity, collaboration and industry-leading innovation," said John G. Morikis, Sherwin-Williams Chairman and CEO.

Sherwin-Williams plans to invest a minimum of $600 million to build both facilities. The new global headquarters will be in downtown Cleveland just west of Public Square between Saint Clair Avenue and Superior Avenue and will be approximately 1,000,000-square-feet in size. The new R&D center will be in Brecksville, on a proposed reconfigured 119-acre site conveniently located off I-77 at Miller Road and Brecksville Road. The R&D center will be approximately 500,000-square-feet in size and will serve as the corporate anchor for a new mixed-use development project.
