  1. ^As of yesterday, their plan was to reopen July 1: https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2020/06/nighttown-in-cleveland-heights-to-reopen-july-1-in-limited-fashion.html
  2. It's incredible. A terrific corridor coming together. And I really wish the city would put in a bike/bus line-jumping lane on Detroit eastbound right before W25th now, before all the risk-averse retail tenants move in.
  3. This has always been one of my favorite downtown buildings. Hope they can do this without cutting down those trees.
  4. LAND isn't an artist or studio. The city has essentially offloaded certain programming/management functions to LAND.
  5. I may be in the minority here, but once you go above the ground floor, it looks like a pretty clumsy mess of faux historicism to me. Painfully forced variety. The middle unit of each cluster in particular kind of hurts my eyes. I like the stepped up front porches though.
  6. ^The issue litigated in Ohio was whether the state law conflicted with the constitutional "home rule" provisions. Here's a PD article published on Cleveland.com from 2009 summarizing the decision: https://www.cleveland.com/cityhall/2009/06/ohio_supreme_court_deals_a_leg.html They are pretty common outside of Ohio, but have been frequently litigated and are on the wane, apparently. https://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/blogs/stateline/2013/03/18/should-public-workers-have-to-live-where-they-work
  7. ^Unenforceable, meaning they are a legal nullity. Effectively repealed, even if the city has not formally done so.
  8. This is a bit misleading... The full story is that the the state in 2006 passed a law forbidding cities from enforcing their otherwise perfectly valid residency laws, and the state Supreme Court upheld the state law. Courts have never found residency requirements per se impermissible. Just another Ohio GOP "federalism for me, not for thee" episode.
  9. ^At least we get World Class Signage. According to the website, these are furnished units, no? I wonder if that's what gets the big rents. Turn key living quarters for ~1 year UC workers and grad students/post docs, etc.
  10. Ah, University Circle, a beautiful campus setting in a big city, but instead of good pedestrian/bike routes and reliable transit, we have 19 separate shuttle fleets.
  11. Are they really going to cover that with "thin brick veneer" as the plans indicated?
  12. One big reason is that infrastructure development/construction in the US has become insanely expensive. And this is for many reasons. Anyone who points to one specific factor doesn't grasp the scope of the problem.
  13. I think she's questioning the "we're not taking it seriously" critique, not saying the CDC guidance is confusing.
  14. "Convenient store" continues to be one of my favorite ultra subtle regionalisms.
