  1. Well running it like a government has had mediocre to lackluster results over the last 30 years or more, so I would say some change is needed. But anyway, my question was why is it so much more expensive to build what is essentially the same structure as a shopping mall? It must be the airport specific infrastructure, security, conveyors, controls, technology etc.
  2. It would be great if the city could start planning for a new terminal that could incorporate Concourse D since it is still new, will be relatively unused and is offset some from the rest of the airport. Even if they decide to build just one long Terminal Concourse complex like Detroit. They could then just increase capacity by lengthening Concourse D.
  3. Well yea, the city should hand over running the airports so they can be run more like a business. The current set up is not working as well as it should. I do think though, that development cost are a major issue if its hindering the airport from truly updating the facility and adding features that can attract more business.
  4. Can someone familiar with the inner workings of airports explain why it costs so much to basically build a brand new airport terminal and concourses? Let's set aside the cost of demolishing an airport while trying to still keep it open for business. I'm in the construction industry, but have never had an airport project, so I am curious. Essentially a terminal building and its concourses are steel framed construction with concrete floors, just like any new office building. Keeping it that simple, you could build a 120,000 SF concourse for around $20million dollars and five similar concourses for around $100 million. The interior buildout is a different animal, but maybe that is where insiders could add their insight. I often hear of new airport projects costing billions. Is it the airport specific infrastructure that cost so much? Is it that the buildings themselves are built to a higher, more expensive standard? Is it government waste? What is it? Any comments would be appreciated.
  5. Macys closing a local Lorain office and this: CINCINNATI — Macy's is closing its downtown Cincinnati headquarters, the department store chain announced Tuesday. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wlwt.com/amp/article/macy-s-closing-downtown-cincinnati-headquarters/30768230
  6. I don't think that home was ever a single family. Looks like the typical Cleveland double, that happens to have the turret on it.
  7. Yea, I'd argue the decline at Beachwood is happening faster than the declines I've witnessed of Severance, Euclid, Randall and Richmond! Was there today and noticed Buckle and Abercrombie gone. The retail environment is one thing, but the more upscale places have been a bit more resilient. A little shocking for the highest end mall in the city and the only traditional mall to serve the bulk of the east side.
  8. That's not really a shocker given what the Clinic is and the fact the photo is taken from right over their main campus! Lol.
  9. Its lopsided already because the bulk of the tallest towers are east of public square. If anything, with this building being tall, but not as tall as Key Tower, it will balance it out seeing as how it will be West of Public Square with possibly more than one tower.
  10. I think the thing people miss about the usefulness of the curb cuts is that without them cars or trucks stopped in front of the building will block the road without a curb cut. This already happens in many places on Euclid and adds to restricted traffic flow for both buses and other traffic. The curb cuts are needed!!
  11. GGP should have did more in their 2006 renovation of Beachwood Place. Had they expanded it more and maybe extended the food court wing to add more space and maybe an anchor, they probably could have staved off the more recent expansion of Eton Collection, and the construction of Pinecrest. Now we have these four retail centers, five if you include University Square competing for the same businesses and shoppers. This is not GGP's fault of course. Just throwing that out there.
  12. Right, Cleveland has the lake to the north, the industrial valley to the south, and the light manufacturing area that advances into the east 30s. The residential population may be lower in those areas, but there are also simply less residential use neighborhoods within that circumference because of the factors I described.
