    Hi guys, I've been a long-time lurker, first time poster. I'm a relatively new resident to Ohio City but I am a long time visitor/patron and an avid proponent/enthusiast for Cleveland development. Just wanted to chime in here to say this project is going to be a massive catalyst in filling out any remaining gaps in Hingetown while accelerating the imminence of the long-planned Irishtown Bend green space + park. What was once deemed "a made up neighborhood" by Cleveland Scene is now going to be the new Ohio City hub for residence, entertainment, and small business. As an aside, I also live directly across from the new Church + State project. Be on the lookout for frequent photo updates from me on this and many other construction projects in the area (i.e. Franklin Circle, Forest City Apartments above OCG, building demolition on the east side of West 25th in the fall, etc.). I have the luxury of gauging progress directly from my windows. I look forward to posting as we move forward!

    This thing absolutely TOWERS over Euclid and creates an amazing urban canyon with the Keith building

    Brought my DSLR to work today and got some pics afterwards. If you're bored it's pretty awesome to see the crews work on the facades during the day and it also looks like they're getting concrete poured/it's already set on the floors of the furthest east building.

    Lol. Central Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The lot next the Dunham was designed by a wrecking ball.

    SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 2019 Condos to rise at Avenue District this fall Geis Companies reportedly is on an aggressive timetable to build a multistory condominium building in downtown Cleveland, eyeing a possible fall groundbreaking if it can get city approvals in a timely manner. The working title for the project is The Avenue Condos-Phase II, because it is located in the area where Zaremba Group planned and began building a multiple-structure, multiple-phase development along and between East 12th and 15th streets, as well as St. Clair and Superior avenues on the northeast side of downtown Cleveland.

    A couple of fun attempts with the pano technique described by @ASPhotoman above. The effect is cool and slightly whimsical

    The context is that it's between two major thoroughfares and on a primary transit corridor among the first- and fourth-largest employment centers in Ohio. Yes, it's very fortunate that Dunham Tavern survived the massive development of a rapidly industrializing city. Perhaps we should pay an homage to that context as well, while looking forward to the future of that neighborhood, its city and this region. Or are we just picking contexts that suit our personal preferences?

    Theres nothing wrong with encouraging mass transit and other alternative transportation options. Frankly, if you're commuting in from Chardon, Avon, or Bainbridge, residents of Cuyahoga ARE paying the bills around the city. This will probably be deleted along with most of this thread, but I'm going go disagree with you on this one https://www.planetizen.com/blogs/105877-war-cars-bad-joke Edit: not to mention most bicyclists are car owners and gas taxes only pay for a fraction of infrastructure projects. Edit2: What major us cities dont have traffic? Our rush hour is a joke and same with traffic on our major corridors. There's absolutely no reason why 271 needs to be widened, or 480 expanded. We need a better transit system that can supplant cars, not more lanes that do nothing for traffic or make things faster.

Feel free to move it if need be.

    Your source is partially correct. SHW isn't building anything for a couple more years until the Valspar debt is down to levels more common across the coatings industry. See this article here: http://neo-trans.blogspot.com/2019/03/new-sherwin-williams-hq-plans-may-stir.html But they have already written their RFP and I believe it has been released. If not, they have sent out feelers because most sources I've spoken with are aware of the RFP, the proposed uses, and the square footage involved. And SHW's company-wide e-mail blast advising everyone not to talk to the media after I wrote this article http://neo-trans.blogspot.com/2019/05/sherwin-williams-hq-will-it-be-ohios.html was a nice non-denial denial. BTW, I wrote a little too much about sources in my first draft of this response. I'm glad @Tastybunns saw the first draft. I hope very few others did.

    Updated photos of the Bowery Development in Downtown Akron - its more than 50% complete, and must be live-in ready by end of November to retain eligibility for Historic Preservation Tax Credits. Progress is coming along nicely. https://www.ohio.com/news/20190803/akrons-downtown-bowery-restoration-taking-shape-with-new-apartments-retail-space

    Those are outstanding graphics, @Geowizical. And there are "three or four" more potential high rises out there, stirring in the minds of developers in Cleveland and Chicago. The downtown Cleveland residential market is evolving and fairly quickly. BTW, that 3-4 more towers doesn't include the new Justice Center, which is still out there somewhere. But the county should have the resources to build it in a few years once the bonds for Gateway and the convention center mature. Ironically, I said in my blog that SHW HQ is a once-in-a-career whale for real estate developers. I completely forgot the new Justice Center which would be twice the size of a combined SHW HQ+R&D.

    Rockefeller incubated his business here. Sherwin and Williams incubated their business here. So did Charles Brush, Frederick Crawford, Cyrus Eaton, Jeptha Wade, Samuel Mather and so many others. We just need to be able to capitalize tomorrow's employers and keep them here.

    They have been installing the led lighting in the north atrium and testing it at night. The glass is very reflective and it is difficult to see the curtain wall panels.

    For those keeping score, Washington Place went from 4 floors with 60 units, to 4/3 floors with 50 units, to 3 floors with 44 units. Plus the first floor garage was sunken deeper so the overall height went from 54 to 40 feet.

    This project is very exciting, hopefully Famicos can reach their goal. Maybe this project can help tie into the E105th corridor projects as well.

    I agree, but I think his problem goes beyond just personal fueds. I think he tries too hard to be edgy and controversial (and maybe funny), which would all be taken care of by just trying to be more objective.

    Agreed with both. That's what drives me crazy about him - he is a gifted writer and gets some incredible intel for his stories. However, his arguments get lost in clearly personal feuds he maintains with some of the people he writes about. I think if he approached writing in a more objective way, he could still body slam folks from time to time, but would do so in a way that was less clouded by vitriol and thereby be of greater service to Scene's readers. He's a good enough writer to do it.

    Yeah, I don't like the idea of removing parking and making them into bus lanes. The better option is to add sidewalk bumpouts and make the parking lane permanent, while giving pedestrians more street space and more visibility at crosswalks. One easy solution to speed up buses would be to add a queue jump at Knowlton's Corner for buses heading northbound on Ludlow Avenue. The bus would get signal priority to jump in front of cars heading north onto Hamilton Avenue.

    ^ Thanks! Good stuff. But I'm going to try again... I am still interested if anyone knows anything about the new Cultural Gardens Welcome Center. 1269 E 99th St, Cleveland, OH 44108

    Serious question, is there actually any legitimacy to Eaton and American Greetings struggling to attract talent? I feel like this idea has grown from “they probably will” to “they are” to “they regret moving” without any actual facts. Like a bad game of telephone. As for Progressive the downtown outpost is tiny strategy team of 40 people and has nothing to do with them struggling to attract talent. In fact Progressive has been expanding their presence in the suburbs with purchases of buildings, new construction, and thousands of new jobs. That being said I would love to have these companies downtown.

    Midweek updates: June numbers have been released. 4.88 million pax at this year’s midpoint, up 4.5% over 2018. Considering July/Aug and the seasonal holiday rush, we’re on pace for 10M for the first time since pre-recession and the subsequent loss of CO’s London & Paris service. Interestingly, recent sources have strongly pointed towards Icelandair returning to CLE for 2020 and beyond (assuming the 737 MAX is airworthy by then, which it should...). First Aer Lingus A321XLR rolled off the assembly line. If we land EI for 2020/21, this aircraft would most likely serve the route (DUB).

    you know what? even if this is a bunch of baloney (kosher beef baloney, that is, ha!), its still something that is out there promoting major development in downtown cleveland, so that's a good thing.

    From the article: ”The Green Ribbon Coalition, a grassroots group that advocates for a continuous ribbon of green along the Lake Erie and Cuyahoga River waterfronts, will host a panel discussion Tuesday, Aug. 27, at 8 a.m., at Merwin's Wharf. “Harbor Face-off: Iconic Footbridge vs. the Landbridge” will feature proponents for competing proposals to connect the harbor to downtown. The pros and cons of each approach will be discussed.” Sounds interesting but I can’t go. Hopefully it is live-streamed somewhere.
