KS Associates provided boundary and topographic surveying services for the Cleveland Clinic’s Global Cardiovascular Innovation Center (GCIC) — the cornerstone project aimed at revitalizing the old Fairfax neighborhood and enticing new business to the area. KS Associates worked with Fairfax Renaissance Development Corporation (FRDC), which will own and manage the GCIC building.
The GCIC site includes 16 parcels of land located along Cedar Avenue between East 100th and East 101st Streets. The project included locating existing property markers to determine site boundaries, performing land record research, preparing a legal description of the property, obtaining spot elevations, and locating all visible features and subsurface utilities. The CGIC is the first of several development projects aimed at making the Fairfax neighborhood more attractive to businesses, potential residents and visitors. The GCIC will be used to develop new technologies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease, spin off new companies, and establish an internationally recognized cluster of cardiovascular expertise.
