  1. I always wanted to see a 30 story high rise condo tower on the triangle where Christopher’s Clothiers is with them as the first floor retail. Views of downtown, Gold Coast and Edgewter Park.
  2. Let’s get this right. https://www.cleveland.com/news/2019/03/land-bridge-proposed-to-link-cleveland-mall-to-lake-erie-what-you-need-to-know.html
  3. Why can’t the City of Cleveland put more 8-hour parking meters on the streets to compete with the parking lot owners? I’m thinking along Rockwell (minus Federal property), St. Clair, Lakeside, Superior, along Public Square, around The Mall (taxi stands are nearly obsolete). Additionally, diagonal parking spaces in front of the Justice Center could accommodate the dedicated police parking that takes up both sides of Ontario and open one side up for public meters. I’d personally like to see a massive City-owned parking garage hidden behind historic buildings on West 6th and West 9th in the warehouse district that could serve the whole western side of downtown—more spaces, smaller footprint. If there is an inexpensive, convenient (app managed) public option with a reliable supply I think it would make being an Absentee Parking Lot Owner a lot less attractive occupation. Rather than use the courts to force lot owners to develop their privately-owned surface lots, I think that a change in public policy that seeks to add to the supply of street parking could cut into the guaranteed revenue stream that the parking industry enjoys.
  4. https://www.cleveland.com/business/2019/02/amazon-ditches-new-york-headquarters.html So Amazon is skipping NYC. Can the real estate/ business people on UO email Bezos and make an earnest grassroots appeal for 1/5 of those 25,000 proposed NYC jobs? All I want is an Ameritrust Tower to look at out of the deal.
  5. At the time I sketched this I was hoping that the Stark HQ building facade could be restored and the building expanded to fit the L-shaped block. With this one possible exception, no other buildings would need to be demolished.
  6. In this proposal, Ottawa Square would sit just to the west of the Jacobs lot. It leaves the door open for an updated mixed-use development (office/hotel/condos) in the Ameritrust Tower on Public Square.
  7. Ottawa Square File this under: Fantasy These drawings are of a plan I had for the Weston Block development from a decade ago. I called it Ottawa Square. It would replace all surface parking lots with housing and put giant City-owned parking garages behind existing buildings and infill. The Perry monument on Lakeside would be repurposed as a fountain in the center of Ottawa Square, offering a human scale public space just west of Public Square.
  8. Two Beacon photos from the summer of the last girders being lowered into place. The last photo is from yesterday.
