  1. I’m pretty sure there’s a direct correlation between this latest turn of conversation, and the SHW thread being locked for the last couple of days. The visceral energy and speculative frenzy simply HAD to be channeled elsewhere! I love UO.
  2. Lots of activity today, and things moving along rapidly at 11601 Euclid...
  3. Such an exciting morning! Thanks as always @KJP! Another ripple effect I’m pondering is if/how SHW’s decision might impact Realife’s proposed residential tower at 725 W. St. Clair, among other things...
  4. Thank you @Mov2Ohio! The “Height Over Everything” tribe are who baffle me. Especially considering the panic that has run through this thread several times over the past couple of months over conjecture that SHW might bolt entirely for another city. I’m pretty sure whatever SHW decides to build downtown will be dramatically transformative. I love a hulking phallic skyscraper as much as the next nerd on this board, but c’mon people!
  5. While like many others I’ve been rooting for the PS site, I would still be really happy with this! As others have noted, I love the thought of the potential for increased riverfront development that SWHQ is likely to trigger. But I’m also very intrigued by the sight of a large (even if not supertall), visually stunning, state of the art skyscraper slightly removed from PS. Aesthetically, I’m among those who would prefer the city’s tallest and most distinct structures to be a bit more spread out and interspersed throughout the CBD, rather than all clustered together in the center. (Not to say I don’t still wish for a huge, skyline-changing presence for the “4th wall” of PS)! Excellent work as always, @KJP
  6. Just noticed these signs in many storefronts along Mayfield and Murray Hill for the first time today. Increasing backlash from locals opposed to new neighborhood development. The proprietor of one gallery/boutique caught me snapping a pic, and came out to talk. He called Quattro “an abomination”, and said the city is “forcing new development down our throats”. How big of a factor will this growing coalition of resistance be going forward?
  7. I really don’t understand all the ire directed toward Constantino’s. I shop there very frequently, and they have everything I need and then some. Prices can be a little escalated, owing perhaps to the “convenience store” factor that was mentioned above. But they have fantastic grab n go sandwiches, salad bar, soup and hot foods, good produce section, and usually very friendly service. In any case, it’s a great step up from previous options in the area, which were pretty much non-existent. Nostalgic postscript: I miss the old Boarding House. Killer jazz and usually no cover charge.
  8. Thank you as always, @KJP! Scrolling through the CPC slideshow for the multimodal hub really quickens my pulse. I absolutely love the cited inspirational elements, especially the “Great Halls”- style trans hubs of other cities, and the Great Lakes Exposition of ‘36-‘37, which conceptually ties the project back to the city’s grand history. Here’s hoping the new lakefront development can trigger a cyclical momentum that results in the land bridge and new trans hub finally seeing fruition in the next 5 years or so!
  9. @Clefan98 no offense but you know you can’t just casually toss something so inflammatory into this thread with such ambiguous language and not expect it to cause a big stir. Whether you like it or not, folks are going to press for further detail and clarification.
  10. That statement was soaring poetry by Mayor’s standards.
  11. Couldn’t we just “relocate” that store to a ground floor retail space in Market Square to preserve that unblemished record?
