    • Ex-Detroit Lion Ron Bartell plans new development with $4.6 million investment in ‘Avenue of Fashion'     Former Detroit Lions cornerback Ron Bartell is charging forward with $4.6 million of investment in new development and renovations along the historic "Avenue of Fashion." The investment is spread across a handful of Bartell's properties on Livernois Avenue between Seven Mile and Eight Mile roads. It includes a new mixed-use building expected to cost $3 million to construct, as well as $1.6 million in renovations to a couple of buildings set to welcome new tenants this spring and fall. The new development, planned for 19338 Livernois Ave., will be tied into a neighboring 3,000-square-foot building, which is vacant and part of the old Hunter's Supper Club property, Bartell said. Once complete, the 10,000-square-foot, three-story development would include three ground-floor retail spaces totaling 7,000 square feet and five apartment units.   More below: https://www.crainsdetroit.com/real-estate/ex-detroit-lion-ron-bartell-plans-new-development-46-million-investment-avenue-fashion

    • Cuyahoga County Board of Control approves purchase of bunks so jail inmates won’t have to sleep on floor Updated Mar 25, 2:37 PM; Posted Mar 25, 2:36 PM By Courtney Astolfi, cleveland.com   ...Once the bunks are delivered, 500 or so inmates will no longer be sleeping on the floor, interim Chief of Staff Matt Carroll, and interim Warden Phillip Christopher said.   The downtown jail, which is supposed to hold up to 1,795 inmates, has been over-populated for years, and a U.S. Marshals Service report released in November found that it was holding more than 2,400 inmates. That number has decreased dramatically over the past several months — there were 1,984 inmates on Monday, according to a county spokeswoman.   MORE: https://www.cleveland.com/news/2019/03/cuyahoga-county-board-of-control-approves-purchase-of-bunks-so-jail-inmates-wont-have-to-sleep-on-floor.html   And   Cuyahoga County Jail inmate jumps from balcony in suicide attempt Updated Mar 25, 2:46 PM; Posted Mar 25, 1:58 PM By Adam Ferrise, cleveland.com   CLEVELAND, Ohio — A Cuyahoga County Jail inmate tried to commit suicide late Saturday when he jumped from 15-foot balcony.   ....Suicide attempts at the Cuyahoga County Jail have tripled in the last three years, peaking with 69 in 2018.   The number of attempted suicides, which spiked from 23 in 2016, happened as conditions worsened at the jail, including an increase in forced lockdowns called “red-zoning.”   MORE: https://www.cleveland.com/metro/2019/03/cuyahoga-county-jail-inmate-jumps-from-balcony-in-suicide-attempt.html
