  1. Maybe Stark should try smaller projects that don't require an unusual amount of public subsidy.

    I don't think so. Our chance of winning the North is done. We can get in if the Raven, Colts, and Titans lose their last 2. edit: The Colts and Titans play each other the last week of the season. So Browns need them to tie that game.

    They sure weren't. Everybody we hoped would lose won.
  4. In the next 2-3 years, I'd say at most one, either 925 Euclid or the Ohio Bell building. The others who knows if we're looking at a 5+ year timeline. Quite a few projects languish for years after securing the tax credits.
  5. Don't get me wrong, the greenway is a great idea and I want to see it built. As unlikely as it may be, if there is ever a political push for a new rail line into the city and it comes down to this greenway or commuter rail, au revoir greenway. RTA should be careful how it structures a lease or easements for this project to avoid another situation like the Blue Line terminus in Shaker.

    Favorite Streets in Ohio

    I'm jealous of some of the Cincinnati streets. Here are a few of my favorites in Cleveland that haven't been posted.

  7. Nice to see some progress on the next phase, even if it's the smaller buildings.
  8.

  9. I went to a meeting at Forest City Brewery where reps from the Rotary Club presented their objection to RTA developing the hillside. While I love the idea of the greenway, I had a similar concern in the back of my mind about giving up the ROW for future rail expansion. Once people get used to green space it will be nearly impossible to give it up. Exhibit A is the hillside itself.
  10. That's crazy. Put the car in neutral and move it out of the way.

    Cleveland Browns Discussion

    About the attendance, 1 win in 2 seasons plays a big part of that. You don't turn that around completely in a single season. The lines on the north side of the stadium are always faster. I don't get why everybody piles into the same 2 entrances.
  12. Feel free to post whatever renderings you have.
  13. Some more pics of Harbor Verandas on cleveland.com. I really wish this were taller. The design is good, it just feels pointless with just 16 units. https://www.cleveland.com/expo/life-and-culture/erry-2018/12/cc18ff039b2649/tour-the-luxury-harbor-veranda.html Here are a couple pics, see more at the link.
  14. I'm getting wary of the growing list of tax credits available for real estate development. Property tax abatements, state/federal Historic preservation, and growing use of TIF's, and now potentially this new tax credit and federal "Opportunity Zones". I sometimes worry they are creating a house of cards where nobody is paying their real value of their developments. HOWEVER, if the Koch backed Americans for Prosperity came out against it, I am all-in. Let's get it done.
  15. Anybody interested in a separate thread for Church and State? I think too much stuff gets lost in this thread. The Quarter was a huge project, in hindsight could have had it's own thread.
