    As promised. Worth noting- the parking garage is starting to break upwards- those are the foundations of that towards the end of the photoset. Craneboi:

    WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2019 Hingetown, Cleveland's hottest development hotbed Hingetown, that little enclave within a neighborhood within a city seemingly couldn't be growing any faster than already it is. No matter where you stand in Hingetown these days, you're either standing next to a 21st-century real estate development, across the street from one or you can see one less than a block away. Increasingly, in Hingetown, you're surrounded by projects. That's a dramatic change considering that drug dealers and prostitutes once roamed this northeast corner of Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood. Today, they have given way to young professionals eager to share their fresh ideas, families pushing baby strollers and entrepreneurs looking to make their mark or a new start. It's come a long way from what was a "toxic corner" as Vanity Fair told the enclave's story four years ago. Now, one of the neighborhood's biggest developers, The Snavely Group, is rapidly expanding its footprint on Detroit Avenue which is along the northern edge of Hingetown (actually, the West Shoreway seems to be the unofficial northern boundary). By the end of this year, Snavely reportedly hopes to delve into Phase 3 of its multi-phase, mixed-use, mixed-income development, moving westward from West 25th Street. A fourth phase may not be far behind that. MORE: https://neo-trans.blogspot.com/2019/04/hingetown-clevelands-hottest.html

    As someone who works in government (I do not work for Cleveland) it's not as easy as you guys think, particularly when you don't have inventory that fits that companies needs. In this region at the moment you have two issues (if you want to call them ssues). One, there is low vacancy in the industrial market, in fact it's historically low. Two, which is the effect of the first, the properties that are available are typically the bottom of the barrel properties that need tons of updating (ex. higher bay doors). As you can imagine most of those properties are in Cleveland because that is where the older stock is. So ya, could the city be slacking? Maybe. But in reality it doesn't matter if the inventory and requirements a company is looking for just doesn't exist. Typically industrial isn't looking to make huge investments in old properties. Furthermore, Cleveland has a glut of industrial properties in comparison to residential or commercial uses. This isn't 1950, those properties, though productive from a GDP standpoint are not as productive from a property value or income producing standpoint of say converting that same old property to a rental or condo building that adds probably as many taxpayers and increases the property values for the city and county and also reduces the wear of the roads around the building because large trucks are no longer frequenting the street. It's not that the city isn't trying hard enough. It's quite possible they're going in a different direction and their direction isn't maintaining or adding new industrial uses. Which by the way is the direction they went for decades and we know how that worked out. Like I said, I work for the government. What's said in private and what plays out in the paper is never the full truth or the full story, usually to the detriment of the government's side.

    Big news from the Rock Hall and NCH. Also news from Cumberland about a proposed hotel North of the Science Ctr. A preliminary design by DLR Group / Westlake Reed Leskosky of Cleveland shows that the Rock Hall expansion would be a curvy, earth-hugging structure built into the hillside between the Rock Hall and Science Center. https://www.cleveland.com/news/2019/04/rock-hall-seeks-to-expand-at-north-coast-harbor-link-to-great-lakes-science-center.html

    A few recent pics I was able to snag recently strolling through the neighborhood recently. I've peaked in at the 711 N High Building for the new Del Mar restaurant, and I must admit the space looks amazing!! Very excited to see Cameron Mitchell's take on Southern California dining as well as the rooftop bar/lounge. I'm also liking the exterior lighting taking place. The Graduate Hotel (former Bollinger tower) window expansion and front addition is also very much along. News of another Shake Shack is going into this space, along with a coffee shop. I'm pretty sure they are going to be putting another rooftop feature/space onto this building as well. And a random view from the back of the new Moxy Hotel progress. Crazy to think these 3 projects alone will add 3 rooftop experiences to the area.....next thing you know they'll be connecting them by zip line!!! (kidding of course) A friend of mine who moved here from New York City about 8 years ago for work but has spent much time in and about the East Coast cities, felt that the vibe of the Short North is very much starting to trend towards the U Street District in Washington DC. Having family there and visiting that area a bit, I can see the assimilation.

    MONDAY, APRIL 1, 2019 New county jails proposed as UC-area high-rises! Instead of seeking to develop high-rise, quality, affordable housing near rapid transit stations along the Opportunity Corridor, community development corporations are vying for Cuyahoga County's proposed consolidated jail facility. The winning site, according to 13 sources, is on East 105th Street at Quebec Avenue. The location is next to the newly expanded East 105th-Quincy Red Line rail station, just east of the county's nine-story Juvenile Justice Center built in 2011. As part of the Opportunity Corridor project, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) opened the expanded station last year after investing $5 million in local and state funds. The station was rebuilt in 2005 for $1.3 million. MORE: https://neo-trans.blogspot.com/2019/04/new-county-jails-proposed-as-uc-high.html

    FWIW, we're falling out of pace with Pittsburgh when it comes to comparisons- that lot (and most of their riverfront parking) is being developed into something [at least my old engineering firm was surveying/doing a TON of environmental on that lot for development]. Additionally, there's a bike path that goes along that part (and this goes for most of the land bordering their rivers). A bit off topic from the FEB, but at the same time, I wish the city would put more value into our river/recreation outside of the towpath, and that includes requiring a walkable boardwalk between establishments...

    SATURDAY, MARCH 30, 2019 USL Cleveland soccer stadium site chosen For 30 years, a forlorn spit of land south of the Inner Belt highway in downtown Cleveland has been eyeballed by different people for different types of sports stadiums. Now, the latest and perhaps most realistic stadium effort has reportedly targeted land owned by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for a 5,000-plus-seat United Soccer League (USL) venue. That's according to two sources, one a major local developer and the other a Cleveland building and construction trades representative. Brothers Greg and Shaw Abrams, co-owners of six Force Sports fitness centers, are apparently teaming up with as-yet unidentified investors to acquire and develop the site, as well as to pay the USL's $5 million franchise expansion fee. The team will be called the Cleveland Force, as the Abrams brothers acquired the naming rights to the Force, an indoor soccer league team that briefly thrived at the since-demolished Richfield Coliseum from 1978-88. However, the Abrams said they are not in a position yet to confirm the site. MORE: https://neo-trans.blogspot.com/2019/03/usl-cleveland-soccer-stadium-site-chosen.html

    On lunch today I grabbed a few photos of the "middle" facade going up. It does appear it's going to be a grid of metallic panels. Most of these still have the protective coating but you can get a feel for the pattern and see a few where the coating has peeled to reveal the color and finish.

    I see the PERFECT space for a City Target...Combine either the first and second floor retail spaces along E 9th/Euclid perimeter or the basement and first floor retail spaces and you have the perfect square footage and prominent location. If anyone from Millenia lurks on this board, please oh please make it happen. Signed, Every Downtown Cleveland Resident

    That's a ridiculous stance for CRS to take. Little Italy has a very diverse collection of building stock and this is not "disrupting the density, scale, and vernacular style of the neighborhood." This will be getting rid of a few surface parking lots, restoring a few single-family houses, and the two houses that would be demolished aren't exactly noteworthy historic structures.

    I had some friends who attended a pre-opening of the Lincoln Social lounge/club occupying the new retractable rooftop space of the 711 building. Not the most polished of photos but good shots of High Street both looking North and South. It's crazy how in the last decade it has filled in to almost a completely non stop row of buildings now. This has all filled out quite nicely. The view of the new Hilton Hotel expansion looking towards downtown will be fun to see as well in the future!!

    Let me be clear..I agree there should be a little more city oversight of the state of active construction sites in our neighborhoods. However, some of these people came across as anti new development and would complain no matter what about any new construction. Construction sites are dirty, it's not ideal. The sidewalks are going to be tore up. The street is going to be tore up where they tie in water infrastructure and wont be fully paved over until their done with the project. There's going to be unslightly dumpsters and piles of needed construction materials on the tree lawns. I don't know the state of the particular site(s) from the article but im well aware of the overall situation. My ~1000ft street in OC has 5 active construction sites! I make due. Walk in the street and ask the workers to move stuff when needed (they have all been extremely accomidating, given the circumstances) And after previously finishing two other single family houses, everything is returned to normal. There's going to be growing pains and the city Should respond for reassurance to the current residents. But we should not be trying to actively slow/stop development becuase its messy (tax abatement discussion aside)

    Not really. If you guys want amenity laden new construction in Cleveland (like everybody on this board is screaming for) those prices are just about right (probably a little more than $2 per square foot). Apparently that is the bottom line for new construction (especially high rise) even in a city like Cleveland.

    "Escape the city life"?? Some of one want this site developed because Cleveland has too much undeveloped land and not enough city life. And that lack of city life is why GCRTA has lost so much ridership.
