  1. That's a good point, but then look at the demand (and expense) of lakefront property on the west side. Multi-million dollar mansions in Cleveland proper, followed by Lakewood High rise condos and apartments, followed by more million dollar homes in Lakewood, Rocky River and Bay Village. The demand is there, but outside of Bratenahl there is a difference in the neighborhoods south of the areas immediately adjacent to the Lake on the east side and into Euclid. Once in extreme eastern Euclid and into Willowick, prices start to go up again.
  2. There's an article on Cleveland.com right now stating the city may be close to issuing an RFP for an app based service to allow people to pay meters with their Credit/Debit cards via their phones. Better than the few pay n displays we have now.
  3. Columbus also has three malls or major shopping areas, Tuttle, Polaris and Easton. Westland and Eastland malls are dead malls. Cleveland has Crocker Park, Great Northern, South Park, Great Lakes Mall, Beachwood Mall, Legacy Village, Eton Collection and Pinecrest. Not to mention other large retail draws and Power Centers like Golden gate/Eastgate. There are too many retail centers for the current retail landscape. The eastern Cuyahoga County area has some of the best demographics at a national level. I've heard the Saks and Nordstrom there have above average sales per foot. That saidI think the oversaturation of retail centers and X's point about growth rates have something to do with it. Columbus is also a test market for a lot of brands, so there may be something to that as well.
  4. Yea, That dental school looks like it was brought out of the 70s, just with a little better selection of exterior materials. The lack of windows, or large windows is what makes it tough to look at IMO. I wonder if the Clinic ever thinks about doing a building up to the sidewalk, or is there a specific reason for the set backs in a lot of their buildings? It may be to keep the street noise somewhat separate from their patients, maybe there is another reason.
  5. I would not like to see Euclid closed down to all traffic under any circumstances, however in a way it already has been, at least to car traffic since so many people avoid Euclid because of the inefficiencies of the traffic light timing, delivery trucks that have to stop in the car lane to make deliveries forcing other traffic into the bus only lane and other, non-BRT buses in the car lane and making stops further backing up traffic. I'd like to see RTA and CPD step up enforcement and the signal prioritization optimized, so we can see how this road should really function. I'm glad the Bus line is popular, but I wish that subway line under Euclid proposed decades ago would have been built instead of this.
  6. Yea, I'm thinking the paper with the writing on it gets peeled and the final product will be revealed.
  7. That's true. With a development like this comes rampant increases in the prices of renting or buying property. In New York City the prices are already out of reach for many, so this would add insult to injury. For Cleveland where only a few pockets are unaffordable, but there are vast stretches of desolate property that could use a boost, this would be great.
  8. Not necessarily. I took it to mean that given the assumed expansiveness of the network, AT&T probably had to apply for multiple permits for each of the locations they needed to work in. If there are 20 locations, then there should be 20 applications and then 20 permits. They may have issued 15, but not the other 5. I more than anyone else here thinks the city needs to streamline its process, however the city does have 30 days to review plans and either give approval, rejection or ask for clarification. If these were all submitted on February 1st, we're not even halfway through that time frame.
  9. More than likely will be one of the last things to get completed since that's where they are bringing in and out all of the material and debris to build the renovations.
  10. Correct. And they will continue to be only bars and restaurants. As more people locate to this neighborhood and those adjacent, you should see a tenant mix, similar to what you see in most strip centers/neighborhood retail centers throughout the area/country. Those with a pet store, barbershop, apparel retailer, drug store, hardware store, tailor, etc. Businesses that will thrive off that captive population's needs. Remember when the CVS on Euclid and 9th used to close at like 6 and was not open at all on the weekends? Now it stays open until 10pm and is open weekends, all because of the increased population up and down Euclid.
  11. I think there are not enough mouths to feed down there Monday-Thursday because if you don't live down there, or near there, you're probably not going there after work. That could change when they build phase three, and when we can get some more apartment conversions down that way. One thought is if the city started to convert its parking lot, garage facility (The Muny Lot) into a parking garage below, apartments above mixed use facility. With the Waterfront line there you'd get a lot of additional activity in those off peak times.
  12. Well, that obviously could happen. Who in 1940 would have thought Cleveland proper or East Cleveland would be in the condition they are in now. If investment is allowed to continue to move further out, with no population back-filling those moving, then yes. However, if people do move back into the inner city, inner ring burbs, and outer ring neighborhoods, providing tax revenue, they should be OK with proper management. The key is disallowing, via a growth boundary or other restrictions to limit development as it creeps further from the core.
  13. 14-28 are The9 Tower building's 104 apartments , while only floors 4-13 are Hotel. Plus you didn't include the additional 90 apartment units in the 1010 Building, which is also part of The9, so yes mostly residential.
  14. I'd say they are as viable as the large office buildings built over the last 100 years. If the office space becomes obsolete in the future there will still be a use for it after is useful life as office, as recent history has shown - see Ameritrust Tower, East Ohio Gas Building, etc.
