  1. Huge plans for Cliffsyde Brewery building in OTR in the latest HCB packet. Plans include 1 story infill, beer garden, event community space, small parking garage and basement space for a brewery space.
  2. What a monumental day for OTR. It would have been such a shame to see a toned down version of the diet with nothing but bump outs like Cranley wanted. Glad PG Sittenfield stepped up to the plate and got city council to sit down and negotiate. I know that some were opposed to the FCC stadium in the West End because of the potential impending doom that it may have brought to the Liberty St diet...but I'm glad we got the best of both worlds; A world class MLS stadium that will draw people from across our suburbs, Ohio, and various states and countries to visit OTR for the very first time...and a long needed diet to Liberty Street that will drastically improve the connectivity of South and North of Liberty into one cohesive historic area (again), and aide in pedestrian safety and walk-ability. It's a win-win in my book.
  3. Maybe there is still a chance: PG Sittenfeld: “Definitely still alive. I think there's a great opportunity for someone like say, @votePASTOR, to play hero here on a totally non-partisan issue. Alternatively, @ChrisSeelbach and@dsmann115 could potentially reach a compromise between themselves.
  4. I’m not 100% sure....I imagine if they put bumpouts and carry through with the watered down version then the original version will be dead for good.
  5. It might help if their is a push to email mayor cranley and persuade him to not veto the project.... mayor.cranley@cincinnati-oh.gov Its worth a shot.
  6. Liberty road diet passed 5-2 today in council...Cranely has said he has not made a decision on whether he will veto the project or not.
  7. PG Sittenfield confirmed today on Twitter that they need 1 more council member to vote yes, currently only 5. Vote will take place either tomorrow or thursday. If you haven’t emailed your city council memebers now is the time to do so. It’s do or die at this point for the road diet.
  8. I can’t tell from the schematics that well...but it doesn’t seem like this involves that many historic tear downs? Also just FYI, this is design 1 of 4 being presented to the west community council.
  9. Boom box Buns is a new carry out window on 1324 Main St, on the side st of the Takeaway on Main Deli, specializing in Chinese’s bao Buns. Currently they only operate Friday and Saturday, from 7 to when they sell out. https://instagram.com/boomboxbuns?utm_source=ig_profile_share&igshid=1gl2rxco1a6ex

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    Why are you so scared of everything? You were constantly chicken little in the Cincinnati crime section, and now you are panicking on the Cleveland boards. Take a breath and use common sense when in a city. There aren’t crazy maurauders stalking the streets of Cleveland killing everyone. Right...just an elderly couple almost getting beaten to death while having a date night out....
  11. Who is voting against this project? From what I’ve seen most council members seem to be in support I thought?

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    Can anyone give any insight as to why Cleveland crime is on such an uptick? The population compared to Columbus and Cincy is roughly the same. They are all similar sized cities for the most part. Left and right I constantly see new murders in the surrounding urban core of cleveland on my news feed and its kind of terrifying. Whats going on in cleveland that is spiking these hard murder rates? Is it a growing and worsening poverty issue? I'm just trying to wrap my head around why and how this is happening, especially when the other 2 Big C's have been quite flat (or even on a downward trend, especially for cincy) this year with their crime rates.
  13. https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/10/05/city-sells-major-piece-of-downtown-property-across.html The city sold the Whex Garage for 1.75 Million to Carell OH LLC. If I remember correctly, PG Sittenfield plan was to use of the funds from selling this property and allocate it the liberty st diet funding gap..
  14. It appears the HCB have a given a recommendation for the approval of 1118 Sycamore. 7 story infill project, will contain 155 apartment units, 2 level parking garage, and ground floor retail. Say what you want about the design, but this level of density and new retail will be great for main street.
  15. Reztark seems to be connected with alot of other high profile projects that have been developed to completion, so maybe this has a chance? As far as the rendering is concerned I love it. Reminds me of something you would see in NYC, just gives a very luxurious mood. I also love the green space, and the pedestrian walkway...to me it seems it could maybe connect with fountain square in some way, and sort of mesh into a more larger pedestrian corridor/square.
