  1. Bad news for Sawyer continues: Jonathon Sawyer No Longer Listed as Executive Chef on Sawyer's, SeeSaw Websites; Owners Say Situation Being Assessed https://m.clevescene.com/scene-and-heard/archives/2020/02/13/jonathon-sawyer-no-longer-listed-as-executive-chef-on-sawyers-seesaws-websites-owners-say-situation-being-assessed?utm_source=feature&utm_medium=home&utm_campaign=hpfeatures&utm_content=HomeFeaturedStoriesCustomMobile After Chef Jonathon Sawyer announced the closure last weekend of Greenhouse Tavern, one remaining question in the wake of the shuttering and news reports covering his operations and various debts was his future with Sawyer's in Van Aken and SeeSaw in Columbus, both owned and operated by the Forward Hospitality Group. As recently as last Friday, Sawyer was listed on each restaurant's websites as partner/executive chef. As Columbus Alive pointed out today, Sawyer is no longer listed on the SeeSaw website. Nate Hall is now listed as executive chef. A similar change was made on the Sawyer's website, where Sawyer's photo and title have disappeared, replaced by co-executive chefs Adam Bauer and Logan Abee.
  2. Oops: Motorist, passenger take car for a swim near the Greater Cleveland Aquarium in the Flats https://www.cleveland.com/crime/2020/02/motorist-passenger-take-car-for-a-swim-near-the-greater-cleveland-aquarium-in-the-flats.html CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland police rescued two men from a car after they drove it into the Cuyahoga River Friday night, according to a police spokeswoman. The incident happened about 11:30 p.m. at Riverbed Street and Elm Avenue just south of the Greater Cleveland Aquarium and Jacob’s Pavilion at Nautica, Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said.
  3. Graham and Marika are doing exactly what I’d like to think I would do if I had the money to do it - building up a proper urban neighborhood to live in by investing in Cleveland. Good for them. And if you two are reading these comments - thank you! Now let’s try to convince them or someone with similar mentality and means to redevelop any RTA Red, Blue, or Green line parking lot into a mixed use property.
  4. Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. The article says it is to clean up sediment and prepare for the removal of the Brecksville dam. I don’t know why the latter would require the former, but it’ll certainly be nice if the canal is cleaner.
  5. One of the main points of ranked voting is to get rid of party primaries. The latter are one of the biggest drivers of extremism and partisanship. It will certainly be easier to achieve ranked voting at the local and state level than the federal level. It is still a worthy goal.
  6. I am a huge fan of ranked voting. And therefore no more party-based primaries. (Every version of ranked voting I’m familiar with eliminates party-based primaries, but I just wanted to be explicit in case there are other versions of ranked voting that still include party based primaries.)
  7. Yes, they did. The retail bays are initially 20’ deep, with the option to convert parking spaces into additional retail depth, which would make the retail bays 60’ deep.
  8. @ASPhotoman, The two renderings are showing the same metal screen, one with the projection and one without. Here’s Steven Litt’s description: https://www.cleveland.com/architecture/2017/06/early_designs_show_playhouse_s.html “On the plus side, the upper three levels of the garage's Euclid Avenue side will be faced by perforated metal panels designed to evoke theater curtains. At night, Playhouse Square would flood light the metal curtain with images and graphics related to ongoing shows in the district.” I also think that this is a really good design feature. It’d be better if it was liner apartments, but the rationale from PHs for not doing that is reasonable. (Note that one of the review committees was able to successfully convince PHS to add shallow retail bays along Euclid after this review was published. The vertical lines were also added later.)
  9. Stark has certainly talked about a number of projects that never panned out and some criticism is fair. But Stark is also one of just two private developers that has brought a skyscraper to downtown in 25 years. At least some credit is due.
  10. Thank you. Just so I have this straight, the abatement on residential portion in years 1-15 includes abatement of school property taxes? And does the new development owner still pay existing property taxes on the previous value? I.E. Would they be paying the same property taxes going forward as the Market Square strip mall has been recently paying?
  11. I noticed all the Market Square mistakes when I read the article, but what was the Tinnerman Lofts description mistake?
  12. Cox Enterprises buys back Ohio newspapers [including Dayton Daily News]; 7-day publication continues https://www.daytondailynews.com/news/local/cox-enterprises-buys-back-ohio-newspapers-day-publication-continues/q4q4JbHSw0fMzS8dZRDF2H/?utm_source=newspaper&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=11583366&ecmp=newspaper_email By Staff, Staff Writer Cox Enterprises Inc. has agreed to repurchase the Dayton Daily News, Springfield News-Sun and Journal-News from Apollo Global Management, the companies announced Monday. That decision ensures the newspapers can continue seven-day a week publication, which was at risk after the Federal Communications Commission allowed Apollo to buy Cox’s TV stations only if it stopped publishing a daily newspaper in the Dayton market.
  13. The new Justice Center will not be near PHS. It will be within a few blocks of the current location.
  14. Cuyahoga Valley National Park closes section of Towpath Trail in Cuyahoga County through Feb. 21 (between Station Road Bridge Trailhead in Brecksville and Frazee House in Valley View) https://www.cleveland.com/news/2020/02/cuyahoga-valley-national-park-closes-section-of-towpath-trail-in-cuyahoga-county-through-feb-21.html BRECKSVILLE, Ohio – Cuyahoga Valley National Park on Monday temporarily closed a section of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, between Station Road Bridge Trailhead in Brecksville and Frazee House in Valley View, for canal dredging. The three-mile section of trail will be closed through Feb. 21, and no detour is available, the National Park Service said in a news release.
