On Friday, Cleveland’s Planning Commission will meet at City Hall to approve the $2.3 million project that will create space for 48 boats and will take up roughly seven acres behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Cleveland architect Paul Volpe presented the plans to the Design Review Committee on Thursday with all indications for a Friday approval by the Planning Commission.

The project will be primarily funded by a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, according to Jackie Mayo, Cleveland’s Port Control communications manager.

The renderings also detail a structure equipped with restrooms, showers and a laundry feature. Mayo expects the work to begin soon, with some limited use this fall; and the entire completion earmarked for the Spring of 2014.
