  2. Akron City Council expected to approve $306,000 for moving city employees from CitiCenter building, making way for development project Posted Feb 27, 2020 By Robin Goist, cleveland.com AKRON, Ohio – City Council is expected Monday to approve payment of $306,000 to cover the cost of moving city employees out of the downtown CitiCenter building as part of plans by a private developer to transform the property into apartments and offices. Brad Beckert, the city’s developing engineering manager, told a council committee this week that the 11-story building needs to be at least 90% vacant for two years to improve the chances of Cleveland-based Weston Inc. receiving historic tax credits for the project. https://www.cleveland.com/akron/2020/02/akron-city-council-expected-to-approve-306000-for-moving-city-employees-from-citicenter-building-making-way-for-development-project.html
  3. The Lodi mall is dead, agreed. But that didn't stop them from building a brand new outlet mall North of Columbus, Tanger Outlets. Will it survive? No, probably the same trajectory as almost all other outlet malls. Also, why mention Lodi and not Grove City which appears to be doing fine. He cherry picked a bad one.
  4. I'm guessing you mean contemporary. Modernist is an era of Architecture and this does not fit it. Modern architecture, or modernist architecture, was based upon new and innovative technologies of construction, particularly the use of glass, steel and reinforced concrete; the idea that form should follow function (functionalism); an embrace of minimalism; and a rejection of ornament.
  5. Confusion, opposition stall Canton’s Cirelli building project From the Canton Repository: The Arthur J. Cirelli building on 30th Street NW will remain vacant for the foreseeable future. The Stark Metropolitan Housing Authority and developers Giltz and Associates planned to demolish the dilapidated structure and build an $8 million to $10 million housing and retail complex. Confusion and changes regarding the proposal and city practices, however, have halted discussions. 'This was an evolving project, and I think that added to some of the confusion because when things are early on, things are constantly changing,' Councilman John Mariol II said. Article
  6. Akron uses new law to reject latest discount store proposal From the Akron Beacon Journal: Citing a new local law that prevents discount stores from flooding Akron neighborhoods, council rejected another Dollar General on Monday, Feb. 24. But the vote was not unanimous. Councilwoman Tara Samples broke with her colleagues, saying that planning staff failed to notify residents in her neighboring city ward who may lack transportation and would benefit from another retail option. The proposed location was 1,400 feet from an existing Family Dollar on Arlington Street near Dave’s Market. A law passed in the fall prohibits new dollar stores within 2,500 feet of existing ones.

  7. The first two proposed were the same Architect, I believe. And this new "design" is nothing like this one.
