  2. Found one on the Cleveland Memory Project:
  3. They state that they are failing because of University Square, but it reads more like they want to capitalize off of University Square's current state; use it as leverage. Overall just a very whiny sounding argument. Why now? The worst argument was, 'University Square sucks, so we deserve digital signage'.
  4. I went through my stash and found a couple sweeping shots of downtown with this building in it, but it doesn't show any detail.
  5. Was going to post this in the Euclid Grand thread, since someone asked about facade coverups and if there were any remaining downtown, but that would have drifted off topic. Does anyone know if there is anything historic behind the facade of 1404 E 9th, the Cathedral Square Plaza building with CVS on the ground floor? Property records indicate it was constructed in 1920.
  6. It will also be good to see this bank of windows filled in properly, much like 668 before it.

    Cleveland: Historic Photos

    My god....it's full of density.....
  8. I count 3 different configurations presented.
  9. Definitely some serious issues with the facade. I had jury duty earlier this year. On the last day of service a downpour happened to blow in from over the lake. Water was cascading down through the windows, on the interior. It was an incredible amount of water, just flowing seemingly floor to floor, flowing through the under-window hvac equipment, over electric wires, etc. Must have been a common occurrence as no one on the floor seemed alarmed. Great views from the upper floors though.

    Cleveland: Historic Photos

    What the heck? Am I missing something here? What happened to the elevated rail? Or is second photo predating the first?
  11. That's one of the least exciting, least creative things I've seen in a while. At least the Osborne's are nailing it on one end of the spectrum.

    Cleveland: Downtown Office Development News

    And yet Medical Mutual chose not to build a new tower in a place like downtown that's not car dependent. So these quotes mean that talk is cheap, certainly cheaper than a new office building. BTW, I just realized. The first quote suggests MM is moving people from its other offices around Ohio to Cleveland. MM has offices in Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo, Strongsville (soon to be Brooklyn), and its downtown Cleveland HQ. MM's lease of its Toledo building expires in 2020. Can anyone shed some insight? Those quotes don't reflect any sort of corporate direction. I assume she's talking about young web/app developers that they have been hiring downtown lately. There is a reshuffling that's going to take place to redistribute the workforces in Copley, Hinkley Pkwy, Beachwood, and Strongsville between Rose and Brooklyn by 2020.
