  1. Litt's article had a rendering that wasn't in the landmark agenda posted upthread. So many breaks in the facade.
  2. Somebody needs to wake up the guy manning the construction cam. https://app.truelook.com/?u=gp1532442178#tl_live
  3. The existing rental at the corner of West 7th and Jefferson, across from Tremont Place Lofts, was demolished this week to make way for Grosvenor Place, a 21 unit apartment building. Pics taken yesterday.
  4. My understanding is that the walls shifted when they cut the last of the fire-damaged roof. The scaffolding broke loose and collapsed, taking out the power lines in the process. Usually.
  5. For those keeping score, Washington Place went from 4 floors with 60 units, to 4/3 floors with 50 units, to 3 floors with 44 units. Plus the first floor garage was sunken deeper so the overall height went from 54 to 40 feet.
  6. I couldn't agree more. It would also even out the disparity of property taxes for houses in the same neighborhood. The current system discourages putting money in your property. Given the number of rentals on the market there's a disproportionate number of houses paying relatively little tax. The house next door to us is a 3 unit rental and pays about half the property tax we do. It's a complete crapbox and probably mints money for the landlord.
  7. The program clearly wasn't intended to fund new highrise construction. If you want to call that taking advantage of a loophole, fine. I'm okay splitting hairs.
  8. A developer tries to game a program to get an unusually large tax abatement and people are mad at city officials for questioning it?
  9. Tabled at design review on Thursday. No telling what happened today at the planning commission. http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/designreview/brd/detailDR.php?ID=3284&CASE=DF 2019-064 Date: August 15, 2019 Committee: Local Design Review Committee Action Type: Tabled Conditions:
  10. Cross posting from the demo watch thread. I'm surprised it hasn't seen an article from Cleveland.com or others. There was quite the kerfuffle when the parking lot operator tried tearing this down some years ago. It went before design review earlier today. I wonder how that went. http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/designreview/drcagenda/2019/08162019/DF-DRAC-agenda-8-15-19.pdf Project: DF2019-064: 310 Prospect Ave. Demolition * The proposed complete demolition of an existing vacant building. Project Address: 310 Prospect Ave. Project Representative: Courtney Ray, B&B Wrecking Tons of pictures on the CPC website, oddly enough many of them taken 2012. http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/designreview/drcagenda/2019/08162019/index.php

  12. GCC's campaign against the Q renovation, then sudden reversal was worth a follow up article. Don't know why anybody would expect that to be a positive article. Glad somebody is writing about this kind of stuff because nobody else is.
  13. The irony of calling that area historic considering the acres and acres of actual historic buildings that were demolished to make it the miserable, auto-oriented hellhole it is now.
  14. Exactly right. The number of units built over the last 10 years is far lower than the loss from smaller households. Though I wouldn't be surprised if it bottomed out in handful of neighborhoods in recent years.

    Gun Rights

    Yes, there is an implicit acceptance of risk when people get on a plane. Accidents can happen and the plane can go down. Are you suggesting people should just accept the risk of getting murdered when they go to a mall or church or school? Good luck with that strawman. The fact is, gun advocates will happily let hundreds or thousands get sacrificed for their right to shoot at tin cans with their buddies in the woods.
