  1. Not sure what the confused mark is for. It also connects to 629 Euclid, where I just moved out of. Lots of people use it coming from the parking garage. I used the hallway every once in a while.
  2. Wouldn’t be much worse than the rest of downtown. I went to CSU undergrad + grad and lived on Euclid near E 4 most of it. The wind tunnels can get seriously crazy in really low temps.
  3. The Killers concert was simply amazing. They've been consistently amazing since I went one of their concerts for the first time in high school. It is really nice to see Cleveland hosting such large events as the MLB All Star Games, and I hope that they continue to do so. The Public Mall space is perfect for these types of events.
  4. I would agree with you if they’ actually did something with the space, but it’s a derelict lot.
  5. Yes, this would be a great little area. I’m here a lot to play trivia at Saucy, and I love the Jukebox. I disagree that it would kill businesses. A lot of these side streets are extremely redundant. Market Street is a tiny one way street literally a stone throw away from Lorain. The street is also closed throughout the year for a variety of events which benefit the businesses. Making the street more safe and open to pedestrians will bring more business to Great Lakes, Flying Fig and Koffie Cafe. I’ve been to Europe, Israel, and South America. A lot of those places have swaths of entire cities closed to traffic, or longer stretches of a single road. I know this is ~America land of the automobile and suburban sprawl~ though. But some of my favorite tourist spots that I remember the most were pedestrian areas where I could spend the day shopping and eating and going into little galleries. Flower Street in Curitiba and Nahalat Binyamin in Tel Aviv are both pedestrian only, and super amazing. The same can be said about E. 4th in Cleveland. It’s one of the city’s best attractions. Same with Old River Rd in the flats, which will be even better when it’s further built up.
  6. Glad this happened. The street is redundant/useless. We need more pedestrian only streets in the city.
  7. I like the small little green area in the parking lot. It says shaded green space if my eyes are correct , but I think it would be nice if it were maybe some sort of rain retention/rain garden as well? Is there pricing available on these?
  8. I think that between shows at playhouse, summer events such as Jazz Fest, etc the area is fine. Not really much in the photographed immediate area that caters to a non student population.
  9. I currently live in this building. They’ve been staked out for a while having their Beacon operations there. This is where they’ve been meeting with prospective tenants and such before showing them the building. Also, MRNs HQ is on the second floor (the Marons own the building, and one of them lives there).
  10. Are there any plans for E. 119th St/the parking lot there? Seems like it could be a good place for a community parking garage with apartments above it?
  11. I was coming to post this . It's the first step to an urban target/IKEA, hahahaha.
  12. Honestly Cleveland needs more 24 hour spots. Even when I’m not out partying, it’s still nice to grab a bite at 3 am. Or there were those times when I had late night study sessions as a grad student that would have been amazing to grab a bite. I bough 3 vodka shots, a double Tito’s on the rocks, and a beer Friday for 25$ at the Map Room. Not sure what it would have cost me in the flats, haha. At least 50$. A dive bar in flats will be great.
  13. I just spoke with councilman McCormack at the DCR event, and there’s going to be a playground by the science center, and in the mall. The one by the science center will be a more traditional playground while the one in the mall will be a larger contiguous “playscape” with like mounds/obstacles and stuff.
  14. ^ the north and south side of Detroit east of W. 25th really need a lot of work. It’s the gateway to the west side / Ohio city. Hemingway is the perfect developer to have site control over the the NE corner of Detroit-W. 25th. Hopefully plans for that come out soon.
  15. Theres 5 active projects on Euclid alone, 3 renos and 2 new. 2 of those are nearing the finish line. These 5 will bring 1200ish new units that should push our population close 20,000 hypothetically if they were at capacity. This isn’t including 925 and the potential hippodrome site/cityclub apartments. Then there’s other projects through downtown (nucleus, feb, smaller projects, etc). Plus 100,000+ daytime employees which are growing. There’s supposedly a demand for nearly 7,000 new residential units by 2030. Condos really make sense. It’s time for some condos. Hopefully this geis project, and knezs smaller townhome development will be a catalyst to more for-sale units. Report shows demand for 6,800 more homes in downtown Cleveland by 2030 Also hopefully the 2020 census will yield good news for the city and downtown.
  16. I thought they had financial issues and were completed around the economic downturn. They were sued by the construction company?
  17. You'd be surprised. My dad is a boomer. He and many want to be in the throw of things. Between Playhouse Square, E. 4th, the stadiums, etc,. its a very attractive area for people of all ages. Boomers like sports and bars too, haha. My dad goes out just as much as I do, and is a member of Playhouse, museums, etc. He's also been a season pass ticket holder to the Browns for as long as I can remember. Plus, boomers have higher spending power, especially regarding expensive condos like these Geis ones will probably be.
  18. 550 Spaces + Surface Parking . Wow. How many students are going to live here without cars? Seems fairly common in the area.
  19. http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/designreview/drcagenda/2018/08172018/index.php - few pages over
  20. Not sure if posted yet, but: DCA is pushing for a Downtown playground, which is extremely super long overdue. Idk where my brain is at, but I missed the cycle event this past weekend for it. It seems like they're having a series of events to raise funding for one. If a trend is really starting for downtown developments for sale continues, they really need to incorporate a lot more family amenities. Pour for a Playground - June 27th.
  21. Cleveland passed a slew of zoning requirements that require liners for parking decks. If I recall correctly, they had to "force" the Lumen project to incorporate the retail along the first floor of their parking deck. Downtown Cleveland zoning tweaks shift height limits, boost potential for historic easements
