  1. At this point, we'll be lucky if this project happens at all.
  2. It was amazing. Six tight lanes all heading in one direction. Used to make the commute downtown from the Heights a snap.
  3. I thought the city had passed an ordinance prohibiting parking from fronting the street in any new developments.
  4. Yes, a Uniqlo would be awesome. It's also so much better than H&M.
  5. The Sherwin Williams website seemed to indicate that no architect had been selected yet. Is Vocon out?
  6. If true, the Brecksville R&D site is disappointing. Missed opportunity IMO to make this a truly catalytic project for downtown and only furthers sprawl.
  7. Yikes. Here's hoping this gets closely reviewed (which I'm sure it will). Looks like a step up from public housing. Actually, some public housing I've seen looks better than this. From everything I hear, Dimit just churns out a lot of junk.
  8. This is a pretty sad lineup. Beachwood Place needs to get its act together. How about a Club Monaco, Fred Perry, or Ted Baker?
  9. It's too bad those are the two getting torn down; the ones to the left are so much worse and really look dumpy.
  10. I just prefer a cleaner aesthetic, like many of the newer buildings along the Highline in NYC; think Zaha Hadid. Just seems more sophisticated than this design, which IMO looks like some of the trashy Vegas and Miami Beach architecture of the late 90s and 2000s. Just my opinion.
  11. I have to say, I tend to agree. It's kind of a hot mess, and looks like it belongs in Vegas or Miami Beach. I'm all for mixing it up and inserting contemporary design on Euclid, but this just seems like it's trying to incorporate too many different concepts, with the end result looking jumbled. Here's hoping it gets refined through design review. And I appreciate that others may have a different point of view.
  12. I share that concern. This project has the capacity to be transformative. Here's hoping the Weston lots aren't just being targeted for a new form of parking, making it an effective dead zone just as it is now.
  13. Yes, again shows how the design was fundamentally flawed even apart from the bus lane issue. The lawn simply can't handle the foot traffic of everyone cutting across. Not surprisingly, people take the most direct route to get where they need to go. The landscape architects really should have recognized that. I would have much preferred a design more in the nature of Rittenhouse Square in Philly, which feels totally active throughout the year.
  14. Appears that the Jacobs Public Square surface parking lot is getting resurfaced today. Bunch of trucks out there now stripping off the asphalt. Seems strange to be investing in parking lot upgrades, especially since the asphalt didn't appear to be that bad. Let the speculation ensue...
