  3. July 07, 2019 04:00 AM updated 5 hours ago Neighborhood Watch: University Park is finding its identity Dan Shingler Development underway That may be wishful thinking, for now, but there is some development taking place near campus. The Martin University Center, a 40,000-square-foot former private club that opened in 1918 and has been vacant since 2013, is being redeveloped into a 73-room boutique hotel by an investor group led by Tom Chema, who is probably best known for spearheading the development of sports venues in downtown Cleveland. "We expect to spend something north of $14 million in hard dollars on the project. That does not include the acquisition, so we'll invest a total of about $19 million," he said. Chema added he expects to complete financing and begin construction in October, with hopes of opening by the end of 2020. https://www.crainscleveland.com/akron-news/neighborhood-watch-university-park-finding-its-identity

  7. Thanks! This has been up for a couple weeks at least but I have not had a chance to grab a photo. Northside is not a technically an area defined by the city. It is considered part of Cascade Valley. This proposed development is across the street from the newer Cascade Lofts. The developer of that is calling the area NoHo for the street it sits on, North Howard. And, as you can see, they are calling this project the NoHo Commons.
  8. You can see the folding in person. The photo is not a great representation of what the final product will be.
  9. Need to see what the numbers are that total to that $1.2 billion. The business school is $72 million. The parking deck is $23 million and is not using any state funding. So you have $100 million right there.

  18. City Councilwoman Sarita Cunningham, R-Ward 1, said she’s not sold on the Imagine initiative, and would rather see the city invest more in filling vacant downtown-area homes with young families seeking their first home purchases. “If we get these homes filled, we won’t need to fix downtown,” said Cunningham, the longtime owner of Massillon Quickprint at 131 First St. NE. They have two grant sources mentioned, ODOT and Ohio Public Works. Would they give money to fixing housing? This sounds like a FB comment from people that don't do any research about where the money is coming from. Hmm, when's she up for election?
  19. The giant billboard on top at the corner really sets it off!
