The Market Block Building Awarded the Commercial Revitalization Award

The Market Block Building in Warren, OH was awarded the “Commercial Revitalization Award” for the 2015 Historic Preservation Awards by the Mahoning Valley Historical Society.


The Raymond John Wean Foundation – Market Block Building

“The Market Block building on Courthouse Square in Warren was built in 1868.  The building evolved through a variety of uses and was sitting vacant in the late 2000’s.  In 2011 the Chesler Group of Cleveland purchased the building specifically to renovate it for the Raymond John Wean Foundation.  The designers and architects restored original skylights, exposed the original masonry walls, and repurposed 1940’s-era doors and original 1868 pocket doors.  The finished building houses the offices of the Wean Foundation, additional office space for new initiatives funded by the Foundation, a community meeting space, conference rooms, break rooms, a fitness room, and reception areas.”
