  1. What are you talking about? No one said anything about “the aforementioned companies sustaining an entire metropolitan area and outlying region”. I said (and it’s a FACT) that Sherwin Williams has been able to be successful for decades being in Cleveland and attracting the talent that they want to Cleveland. That’s a FACT. If it wasn’t working, they either would’ve left a long time ago OR they wouldn’t be as successful as they are today. All you have to do is look at the balance sheet to see how well they’re doing. Bottom line, if they leave (which they won’t, but if they do) they’re doing it because they WANT to, not because they HAVE to. Because they clearly don’t have to. When I complain about the low self esteem and the cap we put on our own ambitions, THIS is what I’m talking about folks. I HATE that Woe is us, we can’t compete, we’re the ugly girl at the party syndrome and that crap becomes a self fulfilling prophesy. Yes the region has our problems. No one on this forum ever denies that. But damn it this is still a great city and a great region and we CAN compete. Stop acting like we can’t. SHW literally became a billion dollar business and have been in Cleveland since their founding. They’re winning right now. Stop being scared of our own damn shadow and believe in yourselves, for ONCE.
  2. This annoys me. SHW has been in Cleveland 100 years. They’re a billion dollar business RIGHT NOW. Clearly they don’t have a problem attracting the kind of talent they need or A: they wouldn’t be as successful as they are now or B: they would’ve left a long time ago
  3. Our civic low self esteem is one of the biggest impediments to our success. It’s hard to achieve greatness when you have a self imposed cap on what you think you can accomplish. We’ve got to stop this.
  4. It’s technically tomorrow now. Can we have the news?! Lol
  5. If SHW isn’t on the Jacobs lot, the new JC probably will be, love it or hate it
  6. The more I think about it, I feel like this is excellent. This would totally set gasoline to the fire of riverfront development. It would be INSANE. Watch how many developments sprout up around there if this happens. And if the JC gets built on the Jacobs lot, that crater is gone too. It’s a win win win for everyone as long as the county doesn’t wet the bed. And from the Hilton development and the County HQ development, I have more faith today that they could pull this off in a timely fashion than I would have a few years ago
  7. I’m just so happy that this thing looks like it may finally get done that I’m not going to nitpick. Nucleus is really going to be transformational
  8. Keep that same energy when your skepticism ends up being proven wrong
  9. I trust those with actual sources and not scared of our own shadow speculation, so until I hear something concerning from those here that we KNOW are plugged in, I’m ok
