  1. My assumption is that TH will be sued very quickly given that letter.
  2. He should have talked with a PR professional before releasing that communication.
  3. Crains will be in a run for their money. No wonder they signed Michelle so quickly. https://www.bizjournals.com/cleveland/
  4. Most successful cities do not have an entire half of the city as mostly low income. The truly great cities find a way to integrate social economic levels. There are projects in Manhattan, but you also have different levels of housing options next to the projects. The same is true in Atlanta and DC. Cleveland needs to find a way to build up black neighborhoods so that they are more integrated social economically. Replacing older projects with newer projects will ensure Cleveland continues to lose tax base and remain an overall poor city. Investing in a strategy that brings back middle class African Americans is paramount to future Cleveland's growth.
  5. I certainly do not see upwardly mobile caucasians clamoring to move to Cleveland's east side. Perhaps that is the case in University Circle and Little Italy, but again very segregated. Unfortunately, the reality is that Cleveland is extremely segregated. For instance, 92% of Cleveland's east side residents are American American while Caucasian comprise 4.6% of the population. My post was not intended to drag us into racial discussion, but one that is about providing a broader scale of housing options for African Americans on the east side. If I were American American and wanted to live in gentrifying young , hip Cleveland neighborhood on the east side, where would I move? For Cleveland to continue to make strides in tax revenues, we can't focus only a few west side neighborhoods. I appreciate that this forum has a thread dedicated to east side development.
  6. I understand that KJP, but my point is most of the east side is full of projects! There are few (if any places) for upwardly mobile black to live in the city. Many have moved to Shaker, Cleveland height Warrensville Hts. and Bedford. To bring this population back to the city, there needs to be a development plan that is more than just projects.
  7. Why do they place these cheap housing project type apartments in African American neighborhoods? Why not develop something a bit more sophisticated like the do in Ohio City? Why not this? https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x8830f068af4f2079%3A0x6280a5eff8cc3d8a!3m1!7e115!4shttps%3A%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipP1jdSCjqI-5wwTujraf4GspXs5TOesdF9681q6%3Dw520-h350-n-k-no!5snew apartment in ohio city - Google Search!15sCAQ&imagekey=!1e10!2sAF1QipP1jdSCjqI-5wwTujraf4GspXs5TOesdF9681q6
  8. What an amazing improvement! Between the mix of these old renovations and the new more modern buildings, downtown is looking really good. Those that come for the NFL draft will be impressed.
  9. It does not get any better than this! Big win for Crains especially with the new business publication getting ready to launched (owned by American Business Journal).
  10. it looks better now than when it was actually open as a department store!
  11. This building really freshens up the Cleveland skyline look and feel. As much as we love the old refurbished architecture, Cleveland needs a few more of these.
  12. My understanding is the streetscape will be a significant improvement. It is why the city allowed the second bridge.
  13. Why is this on cleveland.com? Is it news? https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2020/04/odell-beckham-jr-and-girlfriend-lauren-wood-having-fun-in-quarantine.html
