  1. I think the design looks pretty good. Mostly brick, and it manages to avoid trying to look like 5 buildings which is a plus. I'd love if the parking was below-grade but it being affordable likely precludes that.
  2. Cuyahoga county will continue to lose population if we keep demolishing more housing than we build. Right now Cleveland is the only one building anything of consequence, and it's more than offset by demolition and dwindling family sizes. There is a smattering of recent construction in Beachwood and Shaker. And Lakewood and Cleveland Heights finally have a handful of projects in the planning stage but none that've broken ground. It doesn't help that rezoning projects in the suburbs get voted down. https://www.cleveland.com/community/2019/04/council-revisits-2-old-rezoning-candidates-in-kerem-lake-fountains-of-solon.html
  3. It might be a slow replacement. Voss, Jakprints, Chilcote, and Produce Packaging are taking with them about 1000 jobs. I wonder how many people PNC moved downtown. And the new owners of the Chilcote block talked about moving their mortgage(?) company into that space.
  4. ^^ Last two pours happened on 3/27 and 4/5, or 9 calendar days.
  5. Looking good! It's weird to me that the rock wool is on the outside of the yellow panels. I know that stuff doesn't absorb water but I still wouldn't want anything trapping water against the building.
  6. Ah yes the safety boogeyman. Apparently bus drivers are unsung heroes for rescuing helpless women from other passengers. I suppose the author of that story has never been in a train with more than one car?
  7. Here are the latest renderings for the phase 3a restaurants. The form hasn't changed from the conceptual drawings last year, but materials and colors sure have. And it has all the symptoms builder-driven modernism. Take a simple box and decorate it with too many materials and shapes to hide the fact that it's just a simple box. The project was tabled at design review earlier today, mercifully. https://www.cleveland.com/business/2019/04/flats-east-bank-restaurant-design-going-back-to-the-drawing-board.html
  8. There is a cool tour of the lobby if you've never been inside the building (like me). This building should be a showpiece downtown when it's completed. I hope it actually starts this year. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=6Hua2vCT2vA
  9. Might be a good opportunity for the Stone's Levee area just down the hill. That's probably closer than walking to north of the Q or Progressive Field.
  10. I agree with a post upthread (or maybe the Highline thread?) that called the Vessel alien or sinister looking. I get a foreboding feeling just looking at it. Despite that it's very creative and will be an icon for that area.
  11. It would be nice if people came out in support like they typically do against.
  12. The last gen Focus was built in Michigan before getting the axe for the U.S. market last year.
  13. That article is just another reminder how awful TJ Dow, their last councilman, was.
  14. Some progress on nuCLEus. Stark has selected Cushman & Wakefield Cresco to handle office leasing. Read more: https://www.crainscleveland.com/stan-bullard-blog/stark-starts-nucleus-push
  15. Glad to see more development spill outward from UC. The money flowing through this new Hough-led trust seems weird to me. Is this a common financial arrangement?
