Hahn Loeser's Akron Office was designed by the architectural firm of Dalton & Dalton in 1968. The building was originally constructed in 1969 and 1970 as the world headquarters for the BF Goodrich tire company.
In 2004, the building was modernized as a part of the GOJO Plaza Project. The goal of the Project was to anchor the southern end of downtown Akron, revitalizing that important and historic section of the city. GOJO Plaza was completely updated with state-of-the-art communication and technical support systems, and carefully redesigned externally to honor the building's neo-brutalist exterior.
The office was featured in Interior Design magazine in 2005 for its unique design, sense of style, and impressive collection of artwork.
