  1. ^ Cement board siding isn't a ton better than vinyl. And it'll be a maintenance issue as it ages, sooner than people expect.
  2. You're welcome for the heads up, Scene. https://www.clevescene.com/scene-and-heard/archives/2019/10/15/no-a-white-castle-is-not-coming-to-tremont-and-neither-is-sherlas-chicken-and-oysters
  3. Link to the design review agenda. There's way more pics here. http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/designreview/drcagenda/2019/10182019/index.php
  4. It's possible the county was looking to build on Public Square, but that's not the same as "blocking" Sherwin Williams. That's just conjecture. The Jacobs and Weston lots are privately owned. They can build for whomever they want.
  5. https://www.marketwatch.com/press-release/glenmont-acquires-downtown-cleveland-hotel-to-be-rebranded-to-a-boutique-hotel-indigo-after-a-comprehensive-7-million-renovation-2019-03-11
  6. The city's permit lookup shows a building permit application from January, then some unpaid fees from the housing department in April, then nothing after that.
  7. Looks like Symon's Lolita space is under new ownership. Transferred to 3004 St Clair LLC in September. For whatever it's worth, that address is a Crust in midtown.
  8. The retail should be great for that area, but man I hate what they did to the facade of that building.
  9. Clever of Sherman. Probably made up that bullcrap to fire up his teammates. Baker can't even fire back at him since they lost so badly.
  10. That looks pretty good. I wish it were for-sale condos though.
  11. Most of the planning commission is apparently too scared to vote against Bedrock. https://www.clevescene.com/scene-and-heard/archives/2019/10/04/jack-casinos-proposed-pedestrian-bridge-gets-green-light-from-cleveland-planning-commission-final-approval-still-awaits
  12. Cul-de-sacs and circuitous driving are about as suburban as it gets. City street grids are supposed to be highly connected. Eliminating routes doesn't make it less suburban, it makes it more so. Those mobility options we should be pushing for can't use the towpath so they'll be forced through the center of the neighborhood. This shouldn't have been an either-or decision. The bike path and road could have coexisted, even if it were one-way the entire way.
  13. That's a broad brush to paint with. Reducing capacity with road diets and streetscape projects, sure, but there's no benefit in forcing a circuitous path through an already winding neighborhood.
  14. That cul-de-sac at the end of W.6th was nixed since they couldn't acquire the privately owned property. It's just a regular right-hand turn now. The cleveland.com article posted above had the newer plan.
  15. Love everything about it except the park on Prospect. Prospect has a bunch of bus stops and is an important reliever for all the traffic near Public Square. A streetscape project though would be great. Leave the street grid alone and make the stretch more pedestrian friendly. If you want outdoor space just walk one block to the Square.
