  1. ^My understanding is that these will be consolidated to the lower floors.
  2. ^The article suggests the Marcum stands where Fort Hamilton Hospital used to be located. They mean to say Mercy Hospital.
  3. ^Thanks. I agree with your assumption that the first building was residential, not a school.
  4. ^The Ohio constitutional limits gas tax to only be spent on roads and bridges. It cannot be used for other budget needs or transit.
  5. ODOT is focused on preservation first, and has consistently reported that 90%+ of its funding has gone to maintenance activities over the last few years. Safety is another major priority in their spending, improving intersections, etc. Locals still want expansion projects, however, whether it be the Portsmouth Bypass, Cleveland Opportunity Corridor, new interchanges, etc. Political forces mean these projects still occur here and there, but I don't think we're seeing new highway development (like a bunch of new limited access corridors) as we once did. ODOT/TRAC has been asking local communities to bring more local dollars to the table to make these projects happen. When you see an expansion project, even on the state system, there's a good chance the funding is broader than ODOT. Many new/expanded interchanges are substantially local funded. Mainline interstate widening is usually just ODOT, but many times these occur with larger preservation/reconstruction projects (Columbus or Cleveland innerbelt rebuild, reconstruction of 71 thru Morrow County, etc.). The interstates/innerbelts through most cities have or are being completely rebuilt. These projects are incredibly expensive, and many times have a positive impact on the city streets, such as the caps in Columbus. I don't think we'll see these improvements continue without additional state funding such as the proposed gas tax.
  6. It sounds highly likely that the transit issue will be fixed, to rebate transit agencies like school buses.
  7. ^The building is precast concrete made to resemble stone, an early application of that technique.
  8. ^Besides the traffic signal wires, I believe the remaining overhead wires are phone/cable, so they are probably waiting on some utility company to finally move them. The electric has been complete for a while now. I'll be happy to see that all gone as well, however. Now if we can only redevelop the former KFC/check cashing place...
  9. Congrats to Mt. Vernon on completing the opera house project! Many good people have been working a long time to achieve this.
  10. Big win with the Metropolitan Building. Given its location, small floor plates, angled floor plates, etc, I thought this one was not going to make it.
  11. ^He is talking about developing the Greystone building’s parking lot, not tearing down the Greystone building.
  12. Okay, let's move on folks. This discussion is going nowhere and getting to the point of needing to shut down the thread.
  13. The modern design is fine, but it is just one big honking mass on a street that is otherwise made up of narrow building facades. Two or three variations would be helpful in breaking up the big mass. The housing density and modern design would not be a concern of mine.
  14. Thank you for pulling this together! The population losses between the 1950 and 2017 City of Cleveland boundaries seem too significant. Cleveland's boundaries have grown very little since the 1930s, except for a few annexations from Brook Park for airport expansions. http://northcoastgeo.com/blog/2016/9/29/map-of-city-of-cleveland-land-annexations
