Project Details

Our team was hired as the General Contractor for The Centennial Plaza project in downton Canton, Ohio. The vision is to transform the grassy block downtown formerly known as Market Square. Centennial Plaza is intended to draw people to downtown Canton for concerts and activities affiliated with both the City and the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The project consists of a rotunda that welcomes you from Market Ave. N. It has four 65’ tall stainless steel spires that come together to give an impression of a football and can serve as a performance area. The pavilion, which is reminiscent of a football stadium, will include a covered stage backed by a video board and a wall and sound system that can be used for concerts and movies. Other features include a café building with a circular opening in its roof that’ll project light into the sky, outdoor seating area with fire pits, a “Canton” script sculpture, programmable lighting, and a fog feature. Project completion is scheduled for August 2020 before the NFL centennial celebration in September 2020.
