  1. That surface lot is gross. Hate how it wipes out the entire frontage of 28th behind the building. Between all the various uses, this thing has a crap ton of parking. I'd happily lop off the top floor if it meant the SW corner of the block could remain developable.
  2. ^Minneapolis isn't really a peer in this space. It's a national center of healthcare ventures, with some very big players. The numbers quoted above look pretty darn good for CLE, IMHO.
  3. The slope issue is not great, but this is a pretty silly crusade by Naymik. We're not talking about an especially large capital investment put at risk here. The Red Line Greenway would still be great even without that one segment of Lake Link Trail. Yeesh.
  4. ^@KJP knows all that. But you're right, on a per passenger basis, the Green Line is likely not especially cheap to operate. For personal and sentimental reasons It pains me to say it, but the Green Line seems increasingly difficult to justify. Or at least should be subsidized by the city of Shaker Hts if they want to preserve it.
  5. One thing I hadn't noticed till just now is that Shaker Hts now limits on-street parking on stretches of South Park closest to the rapid station to only 2 hours. Not sure why the city is actively discouraging park and ride there. You can see some hardy folks still park there, despite the longer walk: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.4826896,-81.5721351,3a,75y,336.95h,85.42t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sYWWpmQyZI_i7riRYHg2rvw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 As of 2014, still looks like a lot of folks were parking on Courtland: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.4790366,-81.5432764,3a,75y,339.45h,64.98t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sTk7wbuumXpdg1fhuW3H8dw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  6. Cleveland.com has some nice tables showing the composition of the population change for each county: https://expo.cleveland.com/news/g66l-2019/04/6d0312c650133/cuyahoga-countys-population-drop-9th-worst-in-the-us-last-year-new-census-estimates-say.html Biggest surprise to me is that Franklin County didn't benefit from net domestic migration last year. All its population growth was due to births/deaths and immigration. Has this been the case for a while now? I always assumed domestic in-movers to Franklin County would more than off-set people moving out to the collar counties. Not having looked at the historical trend, could also be a one year blip. And obviously it's all just estimates, but even taking the margin of error into account, that fact was unexpected.
  7. Disappointing to hear that the Dexter Place project is seeking and getting a TIF.

    I don't really see how you you can argue that a position that women, and only women, be forced to subjugate their bodies to the [supposed] life of another is gender neutral. Or that forcing women to risk their long term health, and in extreme cases, even their life (coincidentally, I'm sure, maternal care in the US is awful compared to other developed countries, even for high socio-economic status women) is no different from your duty not to purposefully run over a jogger. My poll misreading is an unfortunate distraction- I should not have lumped so many men into your fringe-ish view regarding abortion in the case of rape.

    ^^Argh, looking at the same source, I mistakenly compared the shares for/against just among women. I'm pleasantly surprised your view is the minority one even among men.

    ^You keep saying you don't devalue the life of the woman, but you also say that forcing a woman to carry a baby to full term is no different than requiring people not to shoot their neighbors, or whatever. You don't see how that's objectionable to a lot of people? Can you at least concede this really isn't just like every other bar on killing? Does the enormous gender split on views regarding the permissibility of abortion give you any pause?
  11. I'm too lazy to sort through the whole thread, but I vaguely remember now that one of the houses might be turned into a couple large condo units?

    Not religious per se, just happens to very tidily map onto religious traditions I don't see much other basis for bestowing personhood on something the size of a lime, to be honest. No capacity for suffering, no slippery slope, no mutual advantage. I see religious tradition mixed, in many people's cases with a misplaced squeamishness from "it could have been me" sentiments. And for my hypothetical, I should probably credit Judith Jarvis Thompson with the seed of that kind of thought experiment. And yes, I am seriously comparing one instance of non-consensual biological dependency with a more far-fetched example of non-consensual biological dependency, because the moral elements that have been raised (other than the biological fact of parenthood) are essentially equivalent.
