  1. To have a strong region, the core needs to be strong. While the region has improved over the past 10-20 years, we're still more "donut" than we should be when it comes to residential and commercial density in the center and then reducing as you move out from that center. So it's not hypocritical to say "stealing" a certain number of jobs from Cleveland to the suburbs is bad but Cleveland stealing jobs from the suburbs is good. It's helping correct the lopsidedness of the region.
  2. There's a For Sale sign in front of A1 Luxury Cars at the corner of West 49th and Detroit. Hopefully it gets redeveloped into something other than a used car lot!
  3. How possible is this? Can the City of Cleveland just pass a law that says "Parking lot owners now need to pay an additional $50/month per spot on any lot they own."? Guessing it can't be that simple.
  4. Are there any formal plans or anything from Kertesz? I know Haken owns Saigon, but not much has happened yet. Re: Kertesz, not that I've seen. Hawken owns surrounding properties too and continues to raise funds, last I'd heard. It sounds like the Hawken project is dead. They sent out an email August 9 saying, in part: As you know, Hawken School announced in the fall of 2016 that we would be moving forward with plans to open an early childhood center in Gordon Square. Our intent was to create more opportunities for students from that area to gain early access to a Hawken education, and we determined that there was tremendous interest in the project on the part of young families. However, in spite of the enthusiasm for this project among many constituents, we regret to announce that we are unable to move forward with the renovation of Saigon Plaza building to create a Hawken Early Childhood Center in Gordon Square. They sited lack of philanthropic and tax credit funding.
  5. There she is. Those "saucers" are reflections on the window from internal lighting, not UFOs. Crane on top of the 515 Euclid parking garage. by jborger, on Flickr
  6. I do, but unfortunately Friday is my last day with this company. :| I'll get some of my soon to be ex-coworkers to take some pictures.

  8. Many of these units are $3+ per square foot per month. "The Newton" 4 bedroom floorplan is $3.17. There's money to be made in student housing.
  9. For something that is supposedly over and done with, the Cavs press release was very detailed. It reiterated all its benefits, the support it had from public officials and how important The Q is to the region. Why? Was it just the Cavs swan song? Their last chance to tell the opposition how short sighted they were? Then at the end, in bold letters, it stated, "The Cavaliers organization will no longer participate in the partnership formed for The Q Transformation project and the need for a referendum no longer exists." Again, why state this? They wouldn't be trying to help the opposition by saving them the work of getting something on the ballot. That statement indicates the Cavs want the opposition to drop the referendum. But if that happens (and why wouldn't it), then what? What's the deadline to get an issue on the November ballot?
  10. So, there's no parking spots due to retail but retail needs needs more parking to thrive? What's the saying? "No one goes there anymore because it's too crowded."
  11. Do they have those due to some coding or regulation? Is it a cost saving measure? Or do some people just like them?
