  1. Thanks so much for helping spread the word about the event urbanetics_! I was really happy with the turnout and apparent interest. What are your thoughts on the plan?
  2. Hey everyone, long time no post! Here's a recent article/radio piece I produced for ideastream about the plan to rebuild Woodhill Homes and the surrounding neighborhood. This has the potential to be one of the more pivotal developments on the city's east side, IMO. Proposed site plan posted as well. Parks, Housing And 'A Smooth Transition' As Woodhill Seeks HUD Funding Mixed-income housing, new streets and sidewalks, parks, a preschool and on-site social services are all part of the initial phases of the plan to completely rebuild the Woodhill Homes public housing neighborhood, starting in late 2020 or early 2021. Details of the first five phases of the plan were outlined in a joint application for a $35 million federal grant, submitted this week by the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) and the City of Cleveland. "We're not just talking about putting a Band-Aid on it," said Jeffery K. Patterson, CEO of CMHA. "We actually are talking about going in and really working hard over a number of years to redevelop that community."
  3. Anyone know what's going on with the building just east of Minh Anh? Scaffolding out front and signs of exterior renovation.
  4. Anyone know what the rates are for adults? I see a join fee of $25 on the website but unclear what the monthlies are. Thanks!
  5. Emerging after a long absence -- hi everyone! Anyone know what's going on with the renovation project at Lorain and W. 29th, on the south side of the street? It's a small one-story building that looks to be getting quite an overhaul.
  6. I live near Battery Park on West Clinton. It's a great neighborhood for running because you've got the W. 65th Street connection to Edgewater Park and (in the other direction) Whiskey Island. And there's a new connection coming (this spring?) to W. 76th Street. :)
  7. Thanks everyone. Yeah, I'm pretty excited about it! Cleveland,Ohio - message box now clear. Looking forward to hearing from you. Hope to see you all tomorrow night at the Happy Dog!
  8. Hi everyone! Some of the veteran posters here may recall that I ran the Emerging Cleveland tours for ex-pats returning to Cleveland at the holidays. I'm excited to say I've turned the idea of those tours into a book, called 'New to Cleveland: A Guide to (re)Discovering the City.' I wrote it as an introduction to urban living in Cleveland, with an eye to newcomers but also in the hope that it would be useful/interesting to folks who've lived in the area for a long time. The book includes neighborhood guides, overviews, walking tours and maps. Most excitingly, though, it features 50+ illustrations by local artist Julia Kuo (100 Days in Cleveland). I'm so excited to have Julia's work featured -- it's fresh & creative. The book is 240 pages, full-color throughout, and designed by local designer Lee Zelenak -- so I think the book is as beautiful as it is functional. Julia and I collaborated to self-publish the book and used a local printer, so it's a 100% local product. You can find out more here! http://www.newtoclevelandbook.com Also, I'd like to invite everyone from UO to our launch party for the book, which is Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 7-9 p.m. at the Happy Dog. Stop by and say hello! Take care everyone, and thanks to this board for giving me a place to learn about the latest developments in the City and an outlet to gush about my passion for the City over the years!
  9. Thanks everyone! We find out who wins this Sunday... Keeping my fingers crossed.
  10. Believeland, yes, I am planning on going.
  11. ^^ St. Pat's -- haha! Yeah, there's just too much to cover in one short video... :angel: ... And by the way, THANK YOU everyone for watching and voting!
  12. Hi everyone, Cleveland City Living is sponsoring a contest about why it's great to live in the city proper. The entries (video and written) are here: http://bit.ly/oILgPg I and my partner made a video entry that I'm proud of. It features footage of Downtown, the Gordon Square Arts District, Tremont and some of our great friends & neighbors. You can vote for us by clicking "Justin Glanville" in the pull-down menu at the bottom of the page. Thanks!!! :clap:
  13. When I first moved back to Cleveland I lived in a fourplex at 2908 Jay Ave. that had most of what you're wanting -- though off-street parking instead of garage. Not sure who owns the place currently, as it was sold a couple years back. Maybe try Googling. You can't beat the location.
  14. A positive story from Cleveland Scene -- in itself a shocker! "The number of college-educated young professionals who moved into the city rose by 49 percent since 2000, according to a recent crunch of the numbers. This means we beat out such allegedly desirable locales as Boston, Chicago, Columbus, and Cincinnati." http://www.clevescene.com/scene-and-heard/archives/2011/04/12/young-people-love-clevelands-grit-and-funk-or-something
