    Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

    Ok. And what happens when it needs to serve 15 million or more? What's the airports plan for that? These are the types of things there should be strategic planning for, and maybe there is, I just don't see it. And as mentioned above, of course it will be a huge expense, what airport projects aren't? There are quite a few airports that have bridges over existing infrastructure to expand. Hopkins will someday have to do the same, assuming the economy here doesnt completely collapse and Cleveland becomes a ghost town.

    Yea, make the new terminal intermodal and could possibly be the set up point for getting the red line past the airport where it ends now. Given that the airport is completely land locked you'd think the city would have had a plan or been working behind the scenes to secure the property or the rights. It may seem like a huge expenditure, and it would be, but let's say the Cleveland region has 5 million people in 50 years and double the amount of jobs. Hopkins in it's current footprint probably won't be adequate.

    True, and it would be expensive to do, but it could be done.

    Maybe not the most appropriate topic for this story, But the Ford Engine Plant land adjacent to the airport is for sale. What are thoughts on if it would be a good opportunity for the airport (assuming it could raise the funds), to acquire for a modern terminal and concourses? Part of the land could be used for the new terminal and the remainder could be put under lease to operators whose lease payments would pay for future airport expenditures. The existing terminal facility could remain in place until the new one was ready, then demolished for room for a potential additional runway or future terminal expansion if needed. http://realestate.cleveland.com/realestate-news/2018/10/former_ford_engine_plant_in_br.html
  5. Possibly, and Cleveland is running out of huge historic buildings that would qualify as a lot of already or are currently under renovation with these same credits.
  6. Actually neighborhoods in Richmond Heights were just really getting started being built in the 1960s. There are several subdivisions built in the mid 70s and 80s as well as at least three built in the 90s and early 2000s. There are currently four active subdivisions in the city now.
  7. Actually, I wouldn't mind if it turned out how Euclid or Randall are TODAY. Aside from the movie theater, it's pretty much already where Randall and Euclid are before they closed for good.
  8. The pie in the sky plans floated by Passov showed residential lining Cedar. That would have been fantastic. This is just standard fair suburban retail. Thing is, I don't think they're pie in the sky The structure is there already. Subdivide those former stores, cut in some windows for the units and have units facing cedar and facing the south. Cordon off the hard to navigate garage so that residents park on the upper levels and patrons park on lower levels, add some residential amenities with retail on the ground, then boom you have a mixed use building. Would probably be a big discount vs building the same from the ground up. You're 60% there already.
  9. I think that proposal would be more of a disaster than what is there now to be honest. They need to renovate the retail between Macys and Target and turn it into residential units. New residential units are lacking in the "First Suburbs" ring. Given the location they'd be a hit.
  10. I know at the time it was originally planned the "Lifestyle Center" concept was still just that and was unproven, but I wonder why they didn't mix the uses a little more. Like have the office space above the outdoor retail? Same with the apartments? Was it zoning? Instead you have your mall section, the residential section and office section segregated. I think if I was planning this place and the uses had to be separate like that I would put the retail in between the residential and office uses. That would require people walking to work from their on site home to maybe stop in at the stores on their way to or from work.

    Not really weird IMO. We aren't on the southern border and are not a gateway city like NYC.
  12. Maybe the center of the site, but isn't the tower portion going to be right up against 17th and Euclid? With the garage built to the west and south of the site (bottom of the photo). That would mean the tower crane will be attached to an outside anchor point not in the middle.

    I think you mean barren east side and really south of downtown is the industrial valley. The north side has a 10,000 square mile lake in the way.

    What is/was the issue with "Cleveland+"? I remember it, but don't know much about it. It was/is a regional branding campaign to promote the entire North East Ohio region to businesses and tourism as "Cleveland+." This covered the entire 4 million person area including the Youngstown/Warren area. Their idea was that the plus stood for Cleveland, plus Akron, plus Canton, plus Youngstown. I think it was met with lukewarm to negative feelings from generally everyone and I don't know that it was very effective in its mission either. I feel like some cool brands could be created using "NEO" in some form or fashion, but there is probably something else out there as well that could capture the benefits of all these areas in a modern and cool way. Here's their site: https://www.clevelandplus.com/
  15. And your pic left out the UH Cancer Center and Marriott that have been built since then as well! Definitely a boom town, especially for NEOhio.
