It's about 4500 feet from there to the center of public square.. At 3.1 mph which is not exactly slow, it would take 16:31 to go that far and that's if you never have to stop at an intersection. Google gives 18 minutes for the trip. Seems reasonable.

The finishes in those apartments are really bad and beige. How did the designer drop the ball on that.  :(

 

I'm guessing beige was in for 2002.  Hard to believe these are already 16 years old.

Ick - that carpeting!  And the tiny kitchen with crappy cabinets and laminate countertops is hardly "lush"

 

Where is MTS to comment on this?  I miss his snark.

Does anyone know what ever happened to MTS. He hasn't posted for awhile.

This area has huge potential.  It looks like things are happening.  Btw, I've seen the plans for 2125 Superior.  It'll be a cool project and it's nearly fully funded.

2101 Superior, GBX's new hqs, is pictured in the cited gallery. It looks oddly incomplete at the roofline. Is it missing its original cornice?

It looks like there is a cornice one story below the roof line.  Maybe cornice isn't the correct term but it is a horizontal element.  I should've paid more attention in my design class.

Prospect Avenue to gain new apartments

June 17, 2018 4:01 am UPDATED 36 MINUTES AGO

By STAN BULLARD

 

Columbus-based Woda Cooper Cos. is starting to rebuild the five-story Stuyvesant Building near Cleveland State University as 42 apartments in a $10 million project, but it's taking a different tack from the plethora of rentals being added downtown.

 

The building at 1937 Prospect Ave., to be called Prospect Yard, is being financed with low-income and affordable tax credits so it will provide downtown housing for $354 to $860 monthly — far less than the going rate of $1,000 monthly. Prospective tenants will be people with annual incomes ranging from $15,000 to $40,000, although actual rents and income will vary due to the number of people in the household.

 

Joseph McCabe, vice president of development for Woda Cooper, said in an interview that the project will benefit workers in downtown hotels, restaurants and bars, and other businesses who want to live near work, especially if they do not own a car.
