  1. I don't know how old the rendering was I found, but it was part of a powerpoint presentation created around the time the article below was published. Both renderings are finished looking, unlike the rendering below for the new Neurological building, and each render is vastly different from the other for a Cole Eye expansion, so I don't know which is favored. These are clearly in the same place, but are obviously not the same design... At least this rendering matches the overall plan pictured above The Clinc isn't planning to start construction on either of these until after London opens in a couple years for the Clinic's anniversary, so I'm sure the plans and designs will be altered within the nest year or so.
  2. I was snooping around and found 2 renderings I haven't seen publicly before: And the East Mount Zion Baptist Church will be retained, but will apparently lose all it's parking, oh well.
  3. Borrowed this photo from the Rocket Fieldhouse thread It looks like demolition has been completed along W. 3rd and Stones Levee in the background. Is there any development news for this project?
  4. I wish people would stop saying these large tax abatements are going to hurt the schools. It clearly states in the article: "That proposal would have granted 100 percent abatement for 30 years on new taxes generated by the project." This project with a 100% tax abatement will not harm anything, it also will not directly financially benefit either. What it does is supply jobs and taxable wages and spending that this project will produce. You will also gain/retain payroll taxes to the businesses and companies that will locate here as well as the few hundred residents. This project will also allow the city to raise property values on neighboring properties after the neighborhood is "improved" with this project. These large projects are a stimulus to the neighborhoods they are built in. I personally feel 30 years is a bit much, I also would like the abatement to be only beneficial to the company that originally constructs a project , so a non transferable abatement, to encourage the builder to construct a product that will withstand the test of time, since they cannot sell the property with an enticing abatement to profit from. This could keep builders from constructing some of the poor quality projects that are falling apart in some of the pre-recession projects around the city. I love this project, I understand the various thoughts and feelings but even with the abatement, nobody is being negatively effected by this project.
  5. I wanted to post this in the Burke thread, but it was locked 'What if Burke vanished into thin air?' Panel invites us to imagine possibilities - an interesting FreshWater article if you haven't read it. please don't hurt me for posting this here, I have witnessed the damage up-thread
  6. The bridge on the right already exists. It connects the Q building thru the Intercontinental Hotel to the C building... also to the 100th street garage and the CA building I thought the same thing when I saw it The East Mount Zion Baptist Church built the A. Charles Bowie Education Building a few years ago, so it would be a shame to tear it down, and although the Church itself needs some extensive repairs, That congregation will never give up that church. I only wish the Cleveland Clinic did more to incorporate the church and the surrounding neighborhood into it's master plan.
  7. here is a link to the Cleveland.com article with a rendering of the other building
  8. Shoreway at MLK is going to start construction tomorrow and finish up sometime next May. I will be glad when this project is over. This NOACA article gives more information about the project specifics
  9. Any Idea if these projects will ever be completed? It would be great if the Metroparks adopted them. Hillandale Bridge in Euclid The old warner and Swasey Observatory Sidaway Bridge
  10. This 2 story building and the large parking garage behind it will be demolished for Nucleus This building below is on a different block is also endangered, but for reasons not made clear (for active construction parking for Nucleus/possible phase 2) The second pic is the building people are more upset about because it doesn't need to be torn down for the Nucleus project. Now we should all be on the same page...
  11. I'm interested to know what those phantom office buildings will be in the rendering, Nearly that entire block has been cleared of structures. Is all of this supposed to kick-start the Fairfax New Economy District around the Opportunity Corridor and the IBM building across E.105th?
  12. A new USL stadium near Chattanooga for the Red Wolves is creating a whole campus around it for a $125 million investment. Hopefully as the sport grows in popularity, Cleveland can jump in with a stadium village of our own!
  13. The City of Cleveland currently owns and operates their airports, would it cost more or save us money to have a company manage the airport on the publics behalf, such as the Hilton Convention Center Hotel, and The push for Cleveland to give up managing the West Side Market. I am also an optimist, and although my opinions really mean nothing, I firmly believe this airport will be of more use as aviation technology progresses. Vertical take off planes have existed for years, just not on passenger flight scale. Other companies are pursuing drone travel for people, which also doesn't require runways, and if you really want to sound crazy, eventually interplanetary flight won't be exclusive to Florida. Until the hyperloop dream comes to fruition, proximity to launch pads and runways will be important to some people. If sea levels keep rising, there will be more need for higher elevation airports. But technology could also progress to be able to launch and land more transportation vehicles on water. Who knows? Closing this airport opens up land for development, but we would lose all of the federal dollars that fund the airports operation. This may save Cleveland money, but a larger benefit would be lost if the airport closes. Federal funds would most likely just be routed to another airport, but it would be unlikely that these funds would even stay in Ohio. If there is enough momentum to close any airport, it would not take 10 years as many imply. Until it makes sense to do so, it is not going to happen. Not in Cleveland, not anywhere. Until the land is physically needed for another purpose, no government office will seriously consider using Burke's property for anything other that what it is currently used for. Getting upset about this is a waste of everyone's energy. Either become a billionaire, Run for a government position, or get over it. Closing and developing the Burke property now or before towering building take up the rest of the developable land inside the current borders of Cleveland's downtown would result in the entire property being developed by mistake after major mistake. Again, I am an optimist, If it ain't broke, don't fix it, but we do need to utilize it to more of it's potential outside of airshows and private jet parking for playoff games. If security could be maintained, a ring park around the airport property would appease some of us.
  14. Sorry, but the Big Dipper roller coaster has already been demolished. Very unceremoniously I might add... but bonus points for creativity
  15. The Cleveland Clinic has some strangely planned construction ambitions. The M building is the current Cleveland Clinic Pediatric inpatient hospital. That building contains most of the pediatric OR's and ICU's, so demolishing it before a suitable replacement is built would be out of the question. The 8th floor of the M building has been under construction for over a year, being remodeled into a new epilepsy unit. The ribbon cutting to officially open M80 will be Monday. The R building next door now contains the outpatient pediatric departments that moved out of the T and S buildings middle floors, still vacant since the fall of 2018 when the newly remodeled R building opened. The TT building is old and largely office space, along with the S and P buildings, so they could vacate the P, S, and TT and RR buildings fairly easily. The U building is also underutilized and takes up nearly an entire city block with the Cleveland Clinic Police Station. The Cleveland Clinic also purchased the The Cleveland Playhouse complex which is heavily damaged due to decades of poor maintenance and neglect (trust me). None of my contacts within the Cleveland Clinic maintenance departments have heard any plans for the next construction project, nor the next demolition project. Most of the Cleveland clinic is talking about the new Mentor Hospital that is supposed to break ground by the end of the year, the closing of the TRW campus in Beachwood, the construction of Cleveland Clinic London, expansion of Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, and integrating of the recently acquired Akron General hospitals, Union Hospital, Martin Health System and Indian River Medical.
