Park Lane Square
Development of Park Lane Square
Peg’s Foundation hired Welty Building Construction for Construction Management at Risk (CMaR) services relating to the Historic Preservation of the Baldwin-Buss House, the construction of Peg’s Gallery and Home headquarters and offices, and the development of associated site amenities on their .9 acres located at the corner of Park Lane and First Street in the City of Hudson.
Park Lane Square is a visionary project led by Peg’s Foundation that includes the restoration of the Baldwin-Buss house, a new home for Peg’s Foundation featuring a “jewel box“ gallery and public art exhibits. The office and the gallery will be surrounded by open space that will include gardens, public gathering places and a walkway that will connect the National Register Historic Business District and the First and Main business district, creating a campus that will have both public and private use.
The project site contains the Baldwin-Buss House, a two-story frame brick building, the Merino building and associated surface parking lots. The project scope includes demolition of previous additions to the Baldwin Buss House, demolition of the other two existing buildings, and the demolition of existing surface parking. Scope also includes the historic preservation / renovation of the Baldwin Buss House, one of the oldest (1825) and most architecturally significant homes in the Western Reserve region of Ohio, the construction of a new 9,400 sf two story art gallery and office for Peg’s Foundation, and the construction of associated exterior public and private gardens spaces —all while relating to the strong architectural heritage of the city of Hudson.
The Baldwin-Buss House Foundation seeks to return the historic house to its former glory while opening it up to the community as an asset for arts, education, history, and gatherings.
The project seeks to be both forward looking and historically grounded. The project is started in March 2022 and the total construction budget for the buildings and site work is planned for $7.7 million.
