  1. Does anyone know how common it is for T50 airports to be operated by a city government vs. an independent entity?
  2. The bigger issue IMO would be threatening the future connection of Edgewater to the Towpath trail via the Whiskey Island connector... unless I have my Flats geography wrong.
  3. Perhaps it will be good news in the long-term if a new developer can come in that has more resources/experience with large projects.
  4. From East 4th and surrounding area, you cross the Nucleus site, the Q and Progressive Field, and then cross Carnegie and under the Innerbelt Bridge... it's doable, but I suspect may be a little long for the average fan. Another reason to embrace the plan for upgrading the western side of Ontario and Huron perhaps. Edit to Add: put another way, there are no natural candidates for being a pre/postgame bar. I don't think FES is a positive example of a well-integrated stadium, but even that feels closer to West 6th than this does to the other side of downtown.
  5. Not what I was hoping for from a site perspective. On the one hand, at least it's not located in Strongsville or Macedonia. But on the other hand, this is pretty isolated and I can't think of what I'd do before/after a game in the vicinity of the stadium.
  6. For example, the convention center in New Orleans (a big-time convention / special event host) is 1km long from one end to the other. I don't think Browns Stadium is an unreasonable distance from the main Convention Center by comparison, assuming a land-bridge can get people back and forth.
  7. I know a nice brownfield about 2 miles down the road... unless there is a thought that this land would be viable for non-industrial use?
  8. The city is working with an architect from Bialosky (firm that designed Edgewater Beach House) to create a master-plan for the stretch of Lake between Detroit and Clifton. There was an initial public meeting to gather input from neighborhood residents last month, and there will be a follow-up meeting sometime in April. It seemed that most of the improvements would be related to streetscape, although I'd assume these improvements would be targeted at attracting additional investment (and residential conversion?) in neighboring blocks.
  9. If you don't know it's there already, you probably can't afford it.
  10. I actually thought "4th Street Live" in Louisville was a little underwhelming, but maybe I wasn't there at a prime time. Too many bland national chains for my taste, although maybe Cleveland needs a true tourist-trap collection of chain restaurants to take the next step as a destination city?
  11. A Bridge to/from Nowhere Nuevo Mod Mex We'd need at least a few-thousand people living north of the Shoreway for this $8million commitment from the city to begin to make sense. Hopefully the Pace development is further along than it seems from afar...
  12. I hadn't seen this anywhere, but there is an ongoing push to add a Platform (aka Paddle) Tennis facility on Cleveland Rowing Foundation property in the Flats near Merwin's Wharf. Would be a really cool addition to a growing Recreation hub in that area. Details: https://www.cleptf.org/
  13. The "Shortlist" was a sham to keep Amazon on the front page in the largest markets in the country, while trying to squeeze tax concessions from New York and DC-area. While I think it's helpful for Cleveland to work on its pitch to other potential large companies, nothing I've seen in the process tells me that Amazon would actually consider a non Top10 market.
  14. The other thing to consider is that pretty much any property sold for less than $100K within Ohio City, Tremont, and (the majority of) Detroit Shoreway is likely to be renovated in some way that would put the new value well over the median. On my own little street in DS, two dilapidated houses recently sold for just under $100K, and I'm happy to say that there are already crews working on them. As a next step, I really hope the Dark green neighborhoods can start spilling over to create more light green in the surrounding areas.
