  1. Anyone notice the subtle Target-icons theme of that brochure? It could be a complete coincidence
  2. The big Hamburg cruise ship is in port today. Pretty neat looking ship!
  3. If you remember correctly, the second highest ranked option for police headquarters was 2001 Payne avenue. Might be an attractive fall-back
  4. Cleveland dot com has the story now as well. With some details. https://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2018/09/cleveland_backs_out_of_deal_to.html#incart_river_index

    Columbus: Crime & Safety Discussion

    I lived across the street from Kroger for a couple years. Yes the area between south campus gateway and fifth avenue is a tiny bit shadier than other parts of high street, but I never had an issue in the time I lived there. I just walked with my headphones in and my music off so no one would ask me for money and I still had my wits about me. I would walk home from OSU at two in the morning no problem.
  6. Hahahahaha. Westlake. I ride that bus every morning and evening. It is standing room only every time I step on the 55. And ridership on the route has gone up 20% since they added the bus lane. That’s a fact, not an observation.
  7. Anyone know the full bounds of the site? Is it the entire south side of breakwater from 65 to 58?

    Is there an existing study on that kjp? I’d love to read it
  10. Kjp—Yes I understand that’s how traditional casinos work. And that’s exactly why it doesn’t matter if you go to the downtown casino or the suburban ones. But that means the downtown casino needs to differentiate itself, and if it is the same suburban casino but smaller, harder to get to, fewer amenities and less parking, then it’s going to lose the market. By billing the downtown casino as a different experience, it can be more successful in the marketplace. Just because casinos traditionally don’t want you to look outside doesn’t mean that’s the right answer for this casino or for casinos going forward.
  11. The one thing I think Jack casino misses in downtown is that it is IN a downtown. But it is exactly the same as all the other casinos. I don’t necessarily know what that means, but what about a rooftop gaming level, windows that actually let you see outside, a viewing platform on the second floor overlooking public square. I just feel like they went for a suburban copy casino when it didn’t need to be.
  12. The tilted kilt parking garage exterior was repaired and repainted (it had been disgusting covered in rust and cracking everywhere). It looks much better now. There was also a discussion of the paninis moving into the tilted kilt location. I’m assuming that is because something is going on at the paninis building what with other places in that building closing.
  13. Because they look like progress
  14. How long will the crane stay up at the beacon? Will we have two cranes in the air at the same time?
  15. No additional info on design, sadly. The mix of uses may change, though.
