About the Bulkley Building

A gem of the Playhouse Square portfolio, the Bulkley Building is situated in the heart of Cleveland’s vibrant theater district. This historic building was constructed in 1921 and named after Robert Johns Bulkley, a notable businessman, banker, Senator and Representative from Ohio. 

Commercial tenants in the Bulkley Building benefit from numerous amenities, including a conference center, convenience store, bank and four highly rated restaurants. Both office and retail spaces are available for lease inside the beautifully designed and well-maintained Bulkley. The Playhouse Square headquarters are also located inside the building.

The Bulkley’s high window-to-floor area ratio provides excellent daylight and views of historic Playhouse Square, including the world’s largest outdoor chandelier, the GE Chandelier. Companies looking to expand over the term of their lease find the floor configuration to be a benefit in creating a flexible development plan.
