  1. I'm guess here, that the residents that are opposed like things the way they are. They don't need anything else. Which may be correct to a point. It just depends if you want progress or if you have convinced yourself that with no change, things will remain at the level they are and not decline.

  2. The Square Scullery owners set to open ghost kitchen in Akron Updated Feb 17; Posted Feb 19, 5:30 AM By Marc Bona, cleveland.com AKRON, Ohio – Someone once said the three biggest things for a business are "location, location, location." But for restaurateurs Matt and Heather Ulichney, that couldn't be further from the truth. That's because the Akron couple, who run The Square Scullery food truck, are opening what they say is the city's first "ghost" restaurant. And in that concept, location means little. https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/02/the-square-scullery-owners-set-to-open-ghost-kitchen-in-akron.html
  3. Hudson's downtown project could hinge on vote Dan Shingler After more than two years of meetings and making changes residents requested, developer Joel Testa said he hopes to soon break ground on the Downtown Phase II development on the west side of Hudson's North Main Street. Whether he can do that this year, or even at all, might depend on a May 7 advisory election in which Hudson residents will be asked whether the city should continue with the project. https://www.crainscleveland.com/real-estate/hudsons-downtown-project-could-hinge-vote
  4. Cafaro Entity Buys Dillard’s Building for $8.92M By Andrea Wood | February 15, 2019 BOARDMAN, Ohio – A newly formed entity whose address is the same as the Cafaro Co. headquarters in Niles purchased the building that houses the Dillard’s department store at the Southern Park Mall on the same day that it was announced the store would close in May. The sale price for the building was $8.92 million, according to the Mahoning County auditor’s office. The buyer is Boardman SC LLC, which lists its address as 5577 Youngstown Warren Road in Niles – the Cafaro building. The transaction closed Feb. 13. https://businessjournaldaily.com/cafaro-entity-buys-dillards-building-for-8-92m/
  5. I'm not sure that I'm overly excited about this: · $900,000 for housing and commercial building demolitions Since 2014 the county Land Bank has been putting about $2 million into residential demolitions at a clip of about 500 homes a year (in the county). At some point it would be nice to not have to do that and crack down on owners and put money into neighborhood improvements.
  6. Downtown Akron Partnership has a nice web page on the work Downtown and a map of the phasing for the Main St. Corridor project. https://www.downtownakron.com/getting-around/downtown-construction-projects https://www.downtownakron.com/_files/docs/main-street-phasing-map.pdf
  7. This is a major bummer for Downtown. Nuevo Modern Mexican & Tequila Bar closes in Akron Updated Feb 6, 5:03 PM; Posted Feb 6, 5:03 PM By Marc Bona, cleveland.com AKRON, Ohio – Nuevo Modern Mexican & Tequila Bar has closed. The restaurant's Facebook page for the restaurant lists it as "permanently closed." Located at 54 E. Mill St. in downtown Akron, Nuevo Modern Mexican & Tequila Bar opened in February 2014, offering a modern spin on Mexican food. Tequila flight offerings from scores of bottles came with a bit of an educational primer; descriptions included notes on how each was aged. https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/02/nuevo-modern-mexican-tequila-bar-closes-in-akron.html
  8. Blueprints name Amazon in Rolling Acres project By Doug Livingston Beacon Journal/Ohio.com Posted Feb 1, 2019 at 10:53 AM Updated Feb 1, 2019 at 5:22 PM The blueprints for the redevelopment of the former Rolling Acres Mall property confirm suspicions that Amazon is coming to town. It’s inexplicably called “Project Carney,” according to blueprints disseminated in October for contractors to bid on the bulk of the $100 million project. A copy of the plans found its way to the Beacon Journal/Ohio.com. The city said a description of the project, based on the plans, “is consistent with the development described by the property developer to the city.” https://www.ohio.com/news/20190201/blueprints-name-amazon-in-rolling-acres-project
  9. What was the market reception to the shipping container retailers in the Warehouse District? How often do you visit the Northside Marketplace? It's a concept that I really hoped would take off and be filled on all days of the week. That doesn't seem to be the case currently though.
  10. A renewed vision for East Cleveland is taking shape Jen Jones Donatelli | Thursday, January 24, 2019 As Sean L. Ward sees it, there will come a day where East Cleveland is mentioned in the same breath with Tremont and Waterloo as thriving, vibrant neighborhoods. And though he knows revitalization won’t happen overnight, he believes that the burgeoning East Cleveland Growth Association can help usher in much-needed change—and that the city is perfectly positioned for it. “East Cleveland has potential for revitalization because of where it sits. It’s centrally located, it's on a main traffic artery, [and] the RTA station is in East Cleveland so it could be once again a public transportation hub,” says Ward, “Most importantly, the people are ready. They want a message they can believe from a voice they can trust, and they will come out in droves in support. ECGA is trying to be that voice.” http://www.freshwatercleveland.com/features/ecga012419.aspx
  11. See inside Akron's first medical marijuana cultivation facility By Jennifer Conn, Akron reporter, cleveland.com | Posted January 28, 2019 at 06:33 PM | Updated January 29, 2019 at 06:05 AM AKRON, Ohio - AT-CPC of Ohio, Akron’s first licensed medical marijuana grower, offered a media tour of its indoor cultivation facility Monday and harvested its first crop. The 43,000-square-foot facility on Home Avenue in North Akron is a former Akron Water Department building converted into a greenhouse with laboratory capabilities. U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, Democrat of Youngstown, and Mayor Dan Horrigan attended the event, and spoke in favor of the facility and the medical marijuana industry, which both officials say they hope will help mitigate the state’s opiate epidemic. https://www.cleveland.com/expo/news/g66l-2019/01/641c9cdb484196/see-inside-akrons-first-medical-marijuana-cultivation-facility.html
  12. Got anything that's you know, relevant? Seattle is the 10th most dense city in the U.S. and has nearly 3,000 more people per square mile than Cleveland. When you start approaching that type of density, then yes, changes in lifestyle are made. There's some data. Answer me this, on any given day can you drive downtown and find a parking spot within say 3 blocks of your destination? The answer is yes. People won't use other means until that is not a reality.
  13. As much as you and I want to think auto dependency can change, it will not. Most of the country is vehicle dependent. Cleveland is not a unique circumstance. Again, how are you determining parking without knowing the amount of users of project?
