  1. This great to see! Looking forward to the renders.
  2. I believe the elevator shaft has always been there. The 2d satellite images google currently uses have the updated Public Square, btw. Globe view is behind a few years with their satellite imagery.
  3. I'm interested to see the plan for the roundabout at Fulton. Would that utilize the Circle or would there eventually be a traffic circle, circled with a restored Franklin circle?
  4. They are currently doing work on this corner. Looks like sidewalks. I can't tell if more is going to take place but I would imagine if the lot(s) were going to be developed in the immediate future, new sidewalks would come after the heaver construction.

    @mu2010 Nice photos. I love the walkways there. and the tile facades! https://www.citylab.com/design/2018/10/lisbons-beautiful-dangerous-sidewalks/573643/ Also , I took the same photo as the first one in your set (i think it's a famous view or something ? )

    Combination of the location, built environment and history. Looking out over the the port and thinking about what transpired there during The War, you cant help to feel something in your gut. It's pretty touristy though. It doesn't seem like that many people live there other than support the incoming tourists. Malta is general is a unique place.

    ^Valletta is a pretty surreal place. 1) Lisboa - I have been thinking about this city recently, and I haven't been back in quite some time. No place has attached and stuck with me as much as Lisbon. 2) Catania - Another place that has stuck with me, not to the degree of Lisbon but similar. ...too many to decide at the moment

    Cleveland: Historic Photos

    Colorized and makes me want these back even more.
  9. I had the exact same feelings. Some of those existing buildings could be re-used for structured parking too. I came up with a quick idea in my head for the site, maybe I can get it on paper. but ya, very unimaginative overall, and I agree with a poster up-thread that this stuff looks like a half step up from student housing that could be found anywhere usa.

    My sister lives in NH, about 30 mins from Lincoln.
  11. I heard it was YMCA that was mucking it up.
  12. I think there is currently a Knez sign up on that corner lot. So maybe Bo knows, something? Unrelated but interesting enough (at least to me) this morning I randomly came across a pic from 1937 of the opposite corner across 47th (northwest)... attaching
  13. I understand the concept of visually disconnecting gamblers from the outside world but could you imagine playing table games with the backdrop of Euclid Ave? An ultra-classy, cosmopolitan concept with a city back-drop, that might be a draw unto itself, no. I have been to One other Casino other than Cleveland. Would this be such an adventurous new concept? With all the saturation you have now, the old “don’t let them see out” might be a hold-out from the old school casino play book at this point, at least for casinos in interesting locations. Lots of ideas going on in my head right now. Is anyone currently using the top floor of Higbee? What's the view like facing east, looking through those large windows on the top floor? Anyone have some photos archived?? I can't remember if I have ever been up there (what floor was Mr Jingeling on?). I gamble once, maybe every 5 years, so I have no idea about this stuff. Just thought it was an interesting idea and discussion.

    Cleveland transit history

    ^Amazing I recently noticed trolley tracks popping up through the asphalt on John ave at Woodbine in Ohio City. Never realized there was a line here. Sure enough, I found a map from 1990 and it looks like there was a short jog on John as part of the Bridge Ave line.
