  1. I agree! But I often wonder if historic tax credits could be used to expand the height to what was originally intended. The building was designed in a gothic idiom and was over 30 stories tall. The final design maintained a short version and an a more deco styling. It was clearly inspired by Eliel Saarinen's Tribune Tower competition design, which ultimately wasn't selected.
  2. This is by no means a new plan, but this is something Westlake Reed had created for precisely this parcel. https://www.wrldesign.com/projects/planningurban-design/cleveland-arts-district-master-plan This is what was there until the late 60s.
  3. A couple more. The Waldorf is at E.119th & Kinsman. The New Lincoln at Madison Ave and Arthur Ave (east of Hilliard).
  4. I'd come upon some photos of old Cleveland neighborhood movie theaters and thought I would re-imagine them somewhat in their current surroundings. The Abby Theater was in Collinwood and The Norwood was on St. Clair near E. 65th St.
  5. I'm also curious about the block between E. 4th st. and E. 2nd on the south side of Prospect. If they dismiss the historic relevance of the Record Rendezvous building, I'll be very disappointed in their lack of vision. Perhaps that location will be addressed in future renderings (fingers crossed . . . on the whole darn thing).
  6. My apologies. Since that is what I would describe as a trellis instead of a fence, I was mistaken. I do agree though . . .unless the plan is to employ the purpose of a trellis by planting a creeping plant such as wisteria or clematis.
  7. I saw a video interview with the Union Club President who said that the intended purpose of owning the lot next door was to help facilitate its development, although none is imminent.
  8. Why? It's merely a temporary and necessary barrier closing off a construction site and not intended to be a permanent fixture. I'm confused by your outrage.
  9. Euclid Ave near Belvoir looking east. I used to live near this area back in the early 80s. Much has changed.
  10. I worked for Daffy Dan as a graphic artist back in the 80s in that building and I can give a qualified WOW!!!!
  11. Playhouse Square restaurants and hotels of the past.
  12. I've always been intrigued by Doan's Corners, especially since it no longer exists, but I've never seen this particular photo. I just wish it was better quality, but still, wow.
