  1. That type of secure facility that will take a patient with severe mental illness is hard to find. I can't imagine the social worker trying to place over 80 residents in a couple months. In my previous experience, I've had patients sent as far away as Millersburg or Alliance for that level of care.
  2. I have heard that the nursing home at W 32nd and Franklin - Vantage Place - is in the process of relocating their residents. Supposedly the building is "under contract" and "residents were informed this week that the building will be sold and turned into luxury apartments and they have until the end of the year to vacate the premises" anyone with "insider info" on this?

    what a collection of crap lol.
  4. PNC also has a technology center right across from the Islander Apartments on Sprague Road (Mohawk Drive actually) in Strongsville. It no doubt contributes to the popularity of the Islander for Indian IT professionals. Not sure if those jobs would be in play for a move to downtown?

  7. Look like a 1970's era building from a community college campus. No bueno.

  11. The only patients you ever see outdoors at a hospital are the ones looking for a place to smoke. Nobody is going to use these park areas except maybe employees on a sunny day during lunch hour. This whole thing looks like it could've been designed for a suburban highway interchange area, not a city neighborhood. It's about as urban as Eaton's corporate campus in Beachwood. (although at least it's not surrounded by a sea of surface lots...)
  12. UO demands some world-class signage lol.

    Spontaneous overnight visit to Cleveland Tomorrow.

    For a chain hotel, the best bet near the rapid is at the Puritas W150th station - LaQuinta Airport North is usually under a 100 a night and steps from the rapid. I don't think any hotel on Brookpark is really that walkable to the rapid station... Cleveland Hostel is probably cheaper and much closer to nightlife and the West Side Market area though.
  15. I’m getting a mid-80’s vibe from those pictures. Is that about right? My friend worked at the one in Amherst in the late 80's... so that's about right I'd say.
