  1. This is awesomeness. KJP -- you are Too Legit To Quit.
  2. It could be part of ongoing environmental testing to determine if the underground storage tanks are leaking. I think the reference to the drilling on the SE corner of West 28th and Detroit is directly related to an upcoming development.
  3. The default question that my wife and I get from many suburban colleagues or acquaintances: where do you send your kids? The fact is that k-8 options have improved greatly for near west side families over the past 5-8 years. Ask the families around you. Or pm me sometime.
  4. I don't know what the development will be, but RTA's plan going back to 2013 was to have townhouses on the site. RTA went with the assumption that any developer of these TOD-townhouses would also want to include one or two garage spaces . Because of the grade change and design considerations, it made more sense to put the townhouse garages on the back to avoid a mega-block of 30 front-loaded garage doors and corresponding curb cuts. They were told that the City would never approve a project where you'd have up to 30 drivers backing out of the driveway and into a busy arterial road (Columbus Rd) each morning.
  5. They rezoned most of Duck Island last year. I just saw this, so I haven't had time to read through it. See the last page for a map of the changes (which includes an urban form overlay for the RTA land). http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/zoning/2018/Map2586.pdf
  6. To be fair, in this situation there have been 2 significant planning efforts (Duck Island Neighborhood Plan and the Market District TOD plan) in the past few years with lots of public feedback/meetings that specifically called for townhouse developments on this land. The TOD plan predated the Red Line Greenway effort, but the Duck Island plan specifically incorporated the trail.
  7. here's another link to the w.45th street project. https://www.progressiveurban.com/shared/fs/0343/company/Civic Builders/West 48th Street/1432 W48 Marketing Package Feb 2018.pdf
  8. ^fyi this property is under contract and will be fully renovated.
  9. ^this project is from the City's Percent for Art program. LAND studio manages the process (as a contractor manages the construction of a house), but the artists and projects are voted on/selected by the City's Public Art Committee.
  10. The firebombing was revenge from the leader of a violent drug ring that was thrown in jail. Joe was involved helping put the guy behind bars after they had done some pretty evil **** to some residents in Joe's ward near Clark ave.
  11. This is another sewer district project and it'll be fenced off for around 2 years.
  12. ^because of the proximity to the water treatment plant, the smells are not too pleasant at that location.
  13. ^Though there is some push back, one of the current residents (somewhat long-term) is the developer of about half of the projects that are going on in Duck Island (south of Carnegie).
  14. question: How many floors will the Beacon have above the garage?
